more info on John Holt's ROCKIN' Bone Bike, seen at CLASSICS AND CHROME




I saw John Holt's Bone Bike (also known as Iron Death) at Classics and Chrome in Rockford, IL this past weekend. Here's some more info on what's obviously one ROCKIN' ride.
-
-
"John Holt, 38, is a self-taught metal bender who, ten years ago, designed and built suits of armor that were sold at Sotheby's auction house in New York City. The virtually all-handmade motorcycle was built in the basement shop of his Boone County, IL home (near Belvidere). It looks like a human skeleton but would be bigger (at 9 feet, 2 inches tall) if it stood erect.
-
"The skeleton has a giant skull in front with one headlight in each eye socket, and 32 teeth in its awesome jaws. This is the first motorcycle that Holt has built, and it took him all of 22 months, fashioning it after a plastic model of a skeleton bought at a hobby shop.
-
"Although the seat isn't padded, last year Holt rode it to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota and won third place in the "Rat's Hole" competition. He also showed it last year at Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach, FL and at the Essen Motor Show in Essen, Germany (the European equivalent of the Detroit Auto Show)."

Specs:
-
Ford 2.3 litre engine
variable flow hydraulic drive
hammer-formed 16 gauge cold rolled steel
weighs approx. 850 lbs
top speed: 90 - 95 mph
