Pimp your bike Japanese style: the dekatora bicycle

A Londoner with a bike, some precision-cut aluminum sheeting and a hell of a creative vision has create the ultimate pimped-out bicycle. Made from the afore-mentioned aluminium sheeting bolted on to a steel frame, Charlie Hope’s bicycle features lights, music and the bike bit still works too. Apparently it’s inspired by Japan’s dekotora art truck craze in the ’70s. No, I don’t know what that is either, but there’s some information on it here.
