How much do you love your favorite beer?
Do you love it enough to design a tandem bicycle after it? Check out this amazing tandem that will be turning heads all over town! The owners, local to Seattle, really appreciate Rainier beer, and they ordered this bike fully customized to match a Rainier can. Every component was hand-picked, from red bar tape to gold spoke nipples, and we even had custom decals made in the Rainier font!

For those of you who have a love of video games, this was our newest fun project. This bike has the Zelda Master Sword painted on the seat tube! We had a blast helping find custom colors and to design the location; the painter went to town on airbrushing this beauty as well.
It can be done, maybe next someone will want us to paint a Metroid bike?
