      For those of us that dig the ISDE type bikes. Pretty sure seeing this has cemented my decision for next bike build. Get my Steve McQueen on-

      I don't know what your local libraries have for inventory, but I recently checked out & ripped On Any Sunday.

      I'm tempted on buying an old dirt bike and turning it into a desert sled.

      A friend of mine had one of those back in the day. That was one fast, fun bike! I had a 125 Elsinore for a while.

      I'd still love to have one of these. I think this would make an awesome desert sled.

      I'm even looking for an old Ford van; I TOTALLY have visions of this dancing in my head...
