Silverton,Oregon freakbike building class !!! Who's the teacher ??? IT'S ME,IT'S ME !!!!!!!!

Dat's right ladies and gents,yours truly will be assisting 10 parent/kid teams in making MAGIC from a big pile of old bikes/parts. This will be made possible by the wonderful people at the Silverton Art Association ,Sylvia,Moises,and volunteers. We will be making bolt together choppers and trykipedes AND a combined class project will be a steering wheel tallbike !!!! YEEEEHAWWWWW !!!!!!!! Each team will be taking home a chopper or trykipede that they built THEMSELVES,and the tallbike will be the grand prize for a raffle at the art fair !!!!! How cool is that !!! This is like a dream come true for me,freakbikin' just seems to be a PERFECT activity for family participation and FUN !!!! Both the parents and the kids can learn so much and everyone will benefit from working toward a common goal. I hope that for some this class will be the spark to light the fire of a life long passion for biking AND art !!! The class will start on June 21st ( 1pm to 8pm ) and last for 5 days,maybe longer as I intend to work with each team to make sure their projects turn out well and function properly. That dude you see riding the tallbike INDOORS is Cayman " lightnin' " Goin,he is my niece Chelseas son,he is a great guy and has the "Right Stuff " to be an excellent new generation freakbiker. Also the kids and I are going to ride the finished project bikes in the Homer Davenport Days parade !!! Very cool !!!!!! I haven't ridden in a parade since 1967 in Cottage Grove,Oregon,the town where my mom popped me out !!!! This is gonna' be GREAT !!!!!!!! NOTE : the trykipedes we will be building may be different from the ones shown here,call or E-mail me ( Robert Stapleton ) with any questions you may have. 503-232-1131 ,

MINI 5-SPEED STEERINGWHEEL TALLBIKE FOR SALE !!! $120 for a 20"x12" bolt together WONDER bike !!!!

YUP !!! Another totally unique Omahgarsh creation. 20" BMX bottom frame,18" BMX large tube top frame with the top bar removed for easier mounting/dismounting. This bike was made specifically for smaller riders,say 5' 2" to 5' 8" . The steering wheel is adjustable,for both angle and height. The seat can be adjusted DOWN a whole lot from what you see in the pics here. The 5-speed derailer setup really works great,something you rarely see on any tallbikes but mine.It,s direct drive, like it should be, not a compromised 2 chain setup. Those are 6 1/2 " cranks and a 50 tooth chainwheel, you can get this little booger going pretty fast if you should choose to !!!! A great ride for only $120 !!! If you are one of the doubters of my designs or just bolt together tallbikes in general,come by and ride THIS one ,it will change your mind GUARANTEED !!!!! 503-232-1131,e-mail
