Party’s On The Bike

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The trip to a party can be just as fun as the big bash itself.

Custom bike company Metrofiets in Portland, Oregon, builds vintage-style bicycles with a modern twist.

They add boxes and small platforms that sit between the rider and the front wheel where people can hop on for a comfy cruise.

The platforms can also carry anything that needs to be hauled, like couches, washing machines, or stoves.

But the apple of Metrofiets co-owner Phillip Ross’ eye is their Beer Bike, which was custom built for a local brewery and holds two kegs chilled in 25 pounds of ice, a stereo system, a bar area that stands 42 inches off the ground, and a rack to hold a stack of pizzas.

Ross calls the bike a “mobile party machine” and says it makes people react as if they’ve “taken a happy pill.”
