Thunderfucker 5. Spring 2012. Pasadena, CA.
This one is special to me. It was purchased as an anniversary present for the customer by his wife. Very sweet, I thought. She gave me carte blanche to do whatever it was that her husband wanted. When I emailed him to find out what that was exactly, he sent me this picture..
So I got to work.
I’m being a little coy. There was more of a conversation than that.. but not too much more. The customer made it pretty clear that he was up for letting me explore. There were a few criteria. Front disk brake.. single speed.. he liked the raw steel.
I sent him back a picture at some point and said, “I’d like to build you the bike that goes with these bars”.
He was game and Thunderfucker 5 emerged!
