Pile of the Week: Hipster Bug Out Bike

I want to take it home and save it, but I’ve got no room at the moment


UPDATE 10/13/2013 – If I’m not mistaken this bike, with nothing more than a swap of the correct handel bars was at the Hell on Wheels Hillclimb this weekend.  So looks like it all worked out okay.
