Cool ideas Box Custom

Cool ideas Box Custom bikes for fit riders When he couldn’t find the right bicycle for him, 26-year-old Thomas Kober decided to build his own. The result reveals Kober’s fascination with burly Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The only difference is that Kober, an offset printer from Zollikofen near Berne, used his own muscles as the engine. The bicycles that Kober builds attract just as much attention as real hogs – so much so that pedestrians are often left standing agog as Kober cruises by. “Each Cruiser is a unique creation,” explains the self-taught bike builder. Needless to say, special chrome parts, forks, and saddles are needed, as are such unusual accessories as a loud foghorn. Thomas runs his own Internet shop at “” Here bicycle enthusiasts who have caught the cruiser bug can find everything they need from cruiser T-shirts to ready-to-ride bikes. And if one of these laid-back bikes needs to go uphill, Kober provides special electric helpers in the form of hub motors and hidden batteries. This one-man enterprise certainly has no lack of good ideas. Did you know. . . . . . to date over 50,000 different medtech parts have been manufactured using ORTHO cutting oil?
