LHC "The Transformer"
By Anthony van Someren - 16 Sep 13
So, you like cafe racer looks, with drop bars for that head-on aggressive look when you ride, but when it comes to day to day riding, you want something with a bit more of a Brat-style or Scrambler/Tracker riding position to weave through the city in comfort. Seems like Lex & Richard from Left Hand Cycles decided they wanted to have their cake and eat it by having a switchable set of bars available for one of their more recent builds, the Acid King. Continuing their post-apocalyptic take on the world, with biblical flooding and robotic alien warfare, they call this set-up The Transformer. The switchable kit of parts includes bars, cables and tank, all pre-designed to allow a fast changover, so you can commute through the city in scrambler comfort from Monday to Friday, and then take on a racing crouch every Sunday to ride the backroads with you quick riding buddies, and all on the same bike. ...or should that be... Take on a commanding riding position as you thread your way through the ruins of your once proud capital city, keeping an watchful eye out for zombies, and then hunker-down to speed across the atomic wasteland, avoiding prolonged over exposure to the radiation embedded in the scorched earth... See the original Acid King here, and more from Left Hand Cycles on the Bike Shed or the LHC blog.
