Wow, I never expected such a big return of compliments, Thanks. And yes I will take orders . The hard part is finding the bike with all the hardware . The rest is just labor . Im glad you like the coconut light made from a cheap drink cup and yes those are Crazy Al drawer pull knobs custom fit to my axlecaps. The grips I found on ebay . It sucks that they made one batch and discontinued them . Happy hunting for them . If you notice, there is a small hardwood bell on the handlebars that makes a knocking sound like a woodpecker too . I cant wait to get my first scratch so I can quit worrying about it .

Coolest bike n town! I bet that will turn EVERY head as you ride by!

on a side note, damn dude! - not only a great carver, but painter, pinstriper, fabricator, etc. REALLY nice design on the bike - it turned out beautiful!

I've been a bike mechanic for over a dozen years and dig all kinds of bikes.

I've never seen a trike that cool before

It reminds me of electra cruisers, they have cool designs all over their fenders too. But yours is custom/on off and you included sweet things like coconut headlight, and bamboo basket. Top Notch.
