What do you do when you own a Green Machine and need another KirkLee? You build the “Blue Machine.” Custom geometry with three-color metallic blue fade and five color tribal paint using our independent rear end stay. We finished this one off with Super Record, Rotor cranks and ROL Wheels on Chris King R-45 hubs.
This bike was wonderful to build. Starting with a custom fit, we discussed every aspect of the bike. We raked out the front fork due to a shorter top tube and lengthened the chains stays to gain wheelbase. Most KirkLee’s start simple and get complex. This one started out complex with ideas of a dragon wrapping the front triangle and became more elegant. During the paint process we viewed it in the sunlight and knew it was “complete.”
