Hi very nice site. Attached our some pictures of my new love. Still trying to come up with a name. The second photo of the the deck was my attempt at a deck mod/art work, its my boys hand prints. They love riding to the store and school on it, in my attempt to go car-lite. Thanks for the great site.

137: JavaJohn's Trek Xtracycle






















Photos courtesy Javajohn66.

This is so cool I had to post it:

After three months of watching Craigslist the bike I was waiting for showed up, a Trek Multitrack. Not only that, it had never been ridden (I didn't believe it either until I went to see the bike). A young fellow was selling two Trek 720 Multitrack bicycles (17" and 19"). Apparently, his parents in a moment of fitness optimism went out a bought two new Trek cycles, brought them home from the shop, and never touched them. After several years of not riding the bike they asked their son to try and sell the bikes on Craigslist. I picked up the 19" bike as if it had rolled of the dealer showroom floor. Unused water bottle in holder, rack and rack bag (with tags still attached), and a Post-Modern seatpost. I HATE POST-MODERN seatposts!!! For the Xtracycle conversion, the PM seatpost will be the first to go.
