To Cool For School........

This weekend on my hunt for "Fascinatingfinds" I stumbled across this great Bamboo and Wicker Bike. I've never seen one like this, have you? When I spotted it I thought.......this is the coolest thing I've ever seen. Picture this in your garden or in your store for a fabulous display. Its Soooo Tommy Bahama or Ralph Lauren with a little Hawaiiana. Omg and if you cruise around on this cool cruiser you'll be the talk of the town. If anyone has any idea or info on a bicycle like this I hope you'll pass on the info. The man I bought this from bought this used many years ago in Hawaii. By the way you can see more pictures of this on my ebay sight, just click the link.

I have actually seen one similar to this and my family kids me that if they build a wicker house I would buy it? They know how much I love wicker. Too cool!!

They had one of these at the bike shop in Coronado. I will try to get a picture of it. It's slightly different, but made of bamboo. I saw someone rent it once..sure is different!

Hi Cheryl,
My friend, Michelle has a bike like that in front of her antique store. I remember seeing it in one of the magazines in an ad. If I remember where it was listed, I'll come back. Good long weekend to you.

Hi Cheryl! Me again. Thankyou for coming by and saying hi, and for adding me to your blog list. I really appreciate that. I don't know how I missed it last time, but this time I found your home featured on the painted cottage. Words cannot express how much I LOVE your home and garden. I just sat here, heart pounding looking at everything.
It is everything I have ever dreamed of having. You are one lucky lady!!!
Have a great week!!!
