Tricking Out A Celebrity Bicycle

Whiplash Customs has taken on a new and exciting project.  Al has joined with the ACBC Club (Angels Choppers Bike Club) as a mentoring metal fabricator to help them build their latest creation The Victoria Royals Bike.

The ACBC Bike Club is a family run and oriented organization that helps inspire kids of all ages to use their creativity by taking broken down bicycles, tricking them out and turning them into works of art that are designed for and commissioned by some very interesting celebrities.  Some of the Club’s past creations include:

  • The Selena (Gomez) Bike
  • The Oz Bike
  • The Hedley
  • The Elton John Bike
  • The Sarah McLachlan Bike
  • The Chris Cornell Bike
  • The Ice Cube Bike
  • The Jackson Brown Bike
  • The April Wine Bike
  • The Jewel
  • The Canucks Bike

Coming soon is the Snoop Dog Bike – commissioned by the man himself!

The past few Saturdays have been a beehive of excited activity as alternating members of the Club come to Al’s shop to be schooled in and helped with building The Victoria Royals Bike.  This project, when completed, is set to be presented in February at a special ceremony at the Arena and then auctioned to the higher bidder.  The funds from this auction go directly to the ACBC Bike Club to help them keep up and running, hopefully locate a new clubhouse and also keep them building bikes and building family and community relationships.  This is a great cause and a super bunch of people who donate so much of their time and energy to giving these kids a place to go, something to do and teach them new skills while also building their self-worth.

We at Whiplash Customs are honoured to be helping the ACBC Club to build this next project.  The energy and enthusiasm we see in these kids is infectious and heart-warming. Like their tagline says, they are “Changing lives one bike at a time.”  Please check out their Facebook Page, see more photos of the build in action and give them a “like”!
