Halaburt’s 1996 WTB Steel Phoenix 26”/650B (Restomod)

Image

Image

The Justification:
- Charlie Cunningham (who was instrumental in creating this) refers to it as “The Pumpkin Bike”.
- The reborn bike was completed on October 30, 2012 and my first ride on it was Halloween day 2012.
- Restomod to the extreme -- Unique mix of vintage, modern production, and modern unobtanium parts.
- Freakishly large (I’m 6’5” tall and this is an 18” frame... yet it all works SO, SO well).
