This bike isn't really vintage, but it's so cool I thought I would post it here anyway.

I was helping Gary Fisher move some of his stuff, and he didn't have any place to put this one, so he left it with me until he can collect it.

The paint job is entirely by hand; each of the bluebirds is different. The artist is Prairie Prince, who is better known as the drummer for the '80s performance-art band, The Tubes. ("White Punks on Dope," "Talk to Ya Later")

Putting the actual bike itself to one side (I dont like the full on DH bikes), the paint job is both amazing and horrid at the same time!

I think its pretty special, like the paint job(bird shit on the names a nice touch) like the rig too. Only thing I would change would be to get the rims matching.
