Scraper bikes out in East Oakland for Halloween
on November 1, 2011
On Monday evening, the Oakland Scraper Bike Team rolled through East Oakland for their 5th Annual Scraper Bike Halloween Ride. A scraper bike is a custom designed bike that includes flashy wheels, a spray-painted frame and a unique design. Some scraper bikes even have sound systems installed. Nevertheless, it’s the creativity of the riders that help transform a regular bike into a scraper bike.
