    I needed to name my slant head plug 69cc engine bike. Since
    I live so close to the Indiana border and do some of my bike rides
    over in that area. I always have a fear of breaking down and not being
    able to make it back home with the bike. I call this phobi the.....
    .... border-horror....lol

    I won one of my bikes in a liquor store drawing. It has Pabst Blue Ribbon stickers already on the frame.

    My bike is going to be my interpretation of an old Indian motorcycle. I'm going to name my Andian. Here's the logo that I'm having my art director make up for me. It'll be gold with black outline and the bike will be red with a black frame/handlebars. Should look pretty neat. BTW, my name is Andy. This is the original logo or Indian.

    The guys at Zipcycle once built a propeller-driven motor bicycle and promptly named it the "Propcycle" (pronounced "propsicckle").

    I named my first build "Confucious" because it is 100% Chinese. My second bike is a GT-2 with a built in gas tank. I named it the "Mach 5" after Speed Racer's ride.

    i dont usually refer to my bike with a specific name, but i like to think of it as the "Rat Bastard", because its loud and dirty looking with all the duct/gorilla/electrical tape.

    I had one project called "molotov" my current bike was to be called "The General" after the General Lee but I decided to not paint it that way. It was and is currently being called "Idiot Face" but I've changed it up a bit and the name no longer fits. Now it just IS. Once I get my new forks painted and installed, and the four stroke running, then I will officially name it. I don't think the name "Hardley Davidson" would work anymore. How about "Live Wrong?" You know, to spoof all the Lance Armstrong wannabe's.

    I have referred to both incarnations of my ride as "the MoPOD Riding Apparatus," MoPOD meaning Motor and Pedal-Operated Drive. I'm currently working on the MoPOD Mk. III.

    Cathay being an archaic name for China, I thought about nicknaming my bike "Cathay Racer". I also seemed to have already given somebody else's bike the nickname of "Hotfoot Express" (he was having trouble keeping his shoe and the exhaust pipe separate from each other). I have also heard a local fellow refer to his moped as a "one horned, zip-tied, dying purple people creeper".
