the Choprical Fish

Completed in summer of 2007, the Choprical Fish is a fully custom human-powered 6-speaker performance bike based on the Soul Cycle Convertible Chopper frameset designed by Fossil Fool and welded by Curtis Inglis.

Key features:

- Custom Fossil Fool mid-range / tweeter rotatable monitors with integrated headlights.

- Front control panel includes switches for 3 separate light sources, transmitter, and amp, overall volume knob, bass/treble knob, and inset iPod mount.
