D*Face x 14 Bike Co. x ESB – Utility Bicycle

By - May 4th, 2012

The thirtysomething British street artist Dean Stockton — better known to his followers as D*Face — holds a special place in his heart for two-wheeled vehicles, “preferably motorized, preferably in need of love.” No, this specially made ESB utility bicycle meets neither of those criteria, but D*Face helped design this self-propelled two-wheeled vehicle himself, collaborating with Ted James, who hand-built the frame, and 14 Bike Co., who added gear hubs, brakes and a “hit list of parts.” One matte black paint job later — to match the black saddle, handlebar grips and crank — and the result is a throwback bicycle that’s utilitarian and sinister in equal measure. via: D*Face
