Not very often, I can only remember one other one on ebay in the last couple of years. You got the nicer one of the two by the looks of it

On the weekend I rode my taboo over to a local car show. The best part was rocking up late and getting a primo spot in the central area, a stones throw from the band. Here's a pic from later in the day when I bailed. The bike got plenty of attention, probably more than my '70 Ford wagon would have!


And heres a few pics with my girl from a month back or so

Hey everyone I Love reading about all your tiki bikes. I have had mine since 2002. I ride all the time and its taking its toll on my tiki cruiser. I've had to replace many parts and its starting to take on its own unique look. This is an older pick as I've added a few more things. I will post new pics soon.

By the way does anyone know where I can find some new Dyno "D" emblems for the sides?

Hewey you got to lose the ape hangers handle bars on a cruiser style bike.
The bull horns or original s much better.

Those baskets on the back look great.

Doubt you will find decal replacements, but there are other Von Franco stickers (not the same...but better than no sticker maybe).
