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


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
