I wish I could still ride a bike, I have not been able to since my car accident in 2001 It was always a great scouting tool,  even if it was blue and yellow.

rifle holders on the handle bars would be great. Wonder if someone makes scabbords like the old horse days that can be mounted on bikes.  :firefighter:

Sweet TAV Turkeywhacker, although, I call them STAV's!!! ;) Stealth Turkey Assault Vehicles!! :lol: ;D They work great!! I put gun racks on the handlebars of my STAV. I had the same idea as you about the milk crate in the back. I've got the milk crate, but haven't bought the rack to mount it up. I've seen them at Wallyworld though. I'll have to post up a pic once I get it done. I'll be using my STAV this spring here in FLA, and hope to take another pic like this. :funnyturkey:

cool bike.  I'd like to set up more of a cruising style bike.  I don't want to hunch over riding.

Cruiser type bike with 29" tires. Use it in Calif to access our NWR's that allow bikes during duck season. Paid $150 at Wally Mart for the bike. Put a small jet sled tub on the plat form on the back.  Tub has dog platform, tule seat and 6 decoys and a blind bag. This basket came with the bike.  Normally have a bigger front basket for the birds on the way out.

Yes,it has five different gear ratios. GX7 by Genesis sold at Walmart. Has 29" tires. This is my second build up.  Some homeless person must have needed transportationlast duck season.  Stole my first one from the place I park my trailer during duck season.

My bike is also a Wallyworld special - aluminum frame, fat daddy tires, 21 speed, shock absorbers with a custom camo duct tape job!!! ;D I'm going to try to mount up the rear platform and attach my milk crate before my 1st hunt next week.
Don't worry Hayudog, you won't need a bike at the WMA I'm taking you to next month. ;) :fud: :turkey:
