One of a kind titanium road bike with intricate Cerakote and polished titanium graphics depicting all kinds of cool s**t guys like: Zombies, chicks with shotguns, etc...
This was the first Cerakote project to push the envelope of what was possible using detailed masking and multiple colors; done up in a nice graphite black and zombie green splatter.
I took this bike to Nahbs in Denver and planned on keeping this one for myself, but alas, it has hung in the office for folks to admire but has not seen any pavement. It's time to let it go to someone who will appreciate it and ride the living dead crap out of it.

It's been a tremendously busy summer here at The Bike Lawyer's World HQ and we are thankful for all the new clients, and also all the referrals folks have made! We couldn't survive without you!
I recently received another shipment of The Bike Lawyer's Bike/Art cards. These 4x6 cards feature a gorgeous Taliah Lempert painting on one side and a short summary of Ohio's bike laws on the back, with reference to the appropriate Ohio Revised Code section. Many folks carry them along on rides and use them during discussions with police [usually after being told to "get over to the sidewalk" or "ride single file" - both of which go beyond the authority of police under the law]
If YOU want some of these cards just send me a note with your address and how many you need or want - I can send 10 - 100 - or even 1000+ for your club, your bike shop, your ride, your event. Let me know and I'll get them out right away!!
