Auction Supports Getting Kids on Bikes

Share

When Michael Henry takes on a project, you might know where it starts but where it will lead is anybody’s guess. That was the case with Mike’s Tiny Strider Custom, a two-wheeler that started with a stock balance bike and took a hard left turn from there.

No marketing slouch, Mike decided on strong branding right out of the box, cutting out a metal relief Count’s Kustoms logo from steel. But placing that logo in an extended, fabricated swingarm/skatedeck combination piece? That’s just how his mind works. Of course, angled apehanger bars were a necessary add-on.

The candy blue paint addresses a top skill in Mike’s wheelhouse, something he finished up minutes before he loaded the bike in his trailer for the trip to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. The little bike didn’t quite make the trip unscathed. That’s where Ryan Evans came in.

Ryan’s paintbrush and creative talents added both style and camo—he applied the details, making this a truly collaborative Count’s Kustoms project. “What took me on this journey is my love of airbrushing,” he said. “But as an artist, I’m never satisfied and always need new challenges.” One glance at Mike’s interpretation of a Strider Custom Bike confirms that!

This one-of-a-kind Count’s Kustoms creation will be auctioned off, starting Tuesday, March 31st at 12 p.m. MT and will run for a 72-hour period. Place your bid here: StriderBikes.com/buy/auction/counts-kustoms/.
