It's time to move on with life.

Some cosmically twisted soul has stolen my old bike and condemned himself to bad kama for the next two lifetimes! That's their problem, mine is thinking about a new dream machine.

The coolest kind of artwork, is one that can take you places... I'm extremely chuffed with how my latest custom airbrushed Phoenix bike turned out. Now I'm sharing the ride-with you!

This is a my piece of Functional Art. For a change, I have custom airbrushed a new, plain black carbon fibre hardtail mtb frame for myself. My left-brained husband built it up for me from all the…
