HOBO Klock Werks Kustom Cycles

Hobo, created by Dan Cheeseman of the Klock Werks team, defies categorization, featuring an unusual combination of old school design and high-tech components. For example, note its rigid frame and brakeless front wheel, yet it has a disc rear brake integral with the drive sprocket. Other curious aspects include the bicycle-type foot pegs and the headlight mounted low on the left side of the frame. An early hotrodder theme brings the machine together, including its Mooneyes dragster-type fuel tank, its towering Rat Fink-inspired shift lever, and short, upturned exhaust stacks of its 88 cubic inch RevTech Pandemonium engine, reminiscent of the pipes on an early rail dragster. Indeed, its spindly frame is rail-like, and its thin, tiny seat seems suitable only for short runs. Hobo is on loan from Klock Werks of Mitchell, South Dakota.
