A couple idea's i havn't done yet...

-Cut down a massaging car seat to a massaging bike seat.

-Replace your bike seat with a motorcycle seat so you can have the young girl on the back with a lime green thong and butt hanging off the edge...

-Make a custom carbon six pack water bottle holder that sits on the handlebars and holds heineken.

- or a single water bottle holder that holds a Fosters oil can...

-go the opposite way and have a little bonzi tree growing from the bottle holder and a flat of rosemary in the rack bag...coat the frame in chia pet paste and spray water it for a month...

- for utilitarians or contractors, make a saddlebag or panniers out of orange home depot 5 gallon buckets with hinged locking lids, wear a painters cap and those cool blue glazed safety glasses. Use pipe insulator for grip tape, and mag lights as headlights... Lock it with heavy chain and a realators box... And always have a roll of duct tape...

- wear a little train engineer's hat, make a little rack bag in the shape of a caboose, hook a delta horn to a gag shop train whistle and get a front basket in black mesh and bend/ weld it into the shape of a cow plow...

And if none of those work... two things... Goldfish and neon...

You need to weld another frame on it, then rip out the top tube, replace it with two seats, put a body on it for aerodynamics, put two doors on it, a large windshield, then put a 4 cylinder motor in the back. You're all set!
