Did you name your bike?

  1. I know there are people here who absolutely love the fruit of their labors. It's been only a few days since I've last worked on my bike and I already feel like I'm suffering from some sort of withdrawal.

    So my question is, do you have names for the bikes that occupied several of your weekends? If so, tell us the name and how you came to it.

    I'm considering naming mine MoneyPenny because it's copper colored. I'd like to make a cool decal. But it's still up in the air.

  3. Very sexy. It's absolutely screaming for a chrome, red, or white tank. They'd all look good.

    I just call all my bikes "She". Like women, each bike has her own style, abilities, ways to make you feel great, and ways to lay you low.
  5. I named my bike Moop after the mascot this other forum I'm in not kid friendly.I actually know some of the members there by going to what's called a p***up and they took a collection for me when I had my heart surgery. They rule big,man.
    I name everything.
    My black truck I named Luther.
    My red truck I named George
    I once had an 88 t-bird I named ghettobird.
    I have a rake I name Gregory.
    And this really cool snow shovel I name muther shuver.
    ....I like Elmo too....

    The Whizzer WC-1 powered 1905 Mead Pathfinder I call "The Kalifornia" (because we were semi replicating a 1902 California), or sometimes "The Wyman Bike. Though my father, after travelling with me and that bike, is firmly convinced it's name is pos.
    My first motoredBike was caled Hercules- for the Hercules Corvette Moped tank I had upon it (I later found out that there are only six complete Hercules Corvettes left in the world as far as they have found) that I bought cheap because I couldn't afford a Whizzer tank, The NE5 whizzer powered I was calling the fireball five but on the way to Indiana it's name changed to ( bear in mind I'm trying to be kid friendly here, not trying to offend) "Dirty Rat B****rd". The Happy time Schwinn is "The Speedster"

    Hi All,

    I named my bike Ned, as in Ned Kelly, as its basically Outlawed in Oz.

    I found out afterwards Many Harley Davidson riders in Australia had a big
    association with Ned Kelly, due to the way the law had treated them at times.

    For anyone with No idea who Ned Kelly is,
    see this link.


    The red logo on top of this site I was thinking of laminating
    and putting on my bike, but thought better of it,
    just in case I do ever get pulled over.


    Will Start.

    Mr. Toad from Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disney world. They tore it down, but it was a crazy f'd up nonsense ride. Just like when i ride my bike.

    The Breeze Lynyrd Skynyrd's They Call me the Breeze

    Found a guy here in town that makes and paints custom bikes. I'm gonna have him paint the names on the tanks.

    hmmmm, let's see...... there's Rusty (55 years of rust)

    the bruiser
    (black & blue theme)

    stump-jumper/dirt kicker (my mtn bike has many more names lately, that would be censored...due to the abuse I have inflicted upon it :evil::lol:)

    my Russian Spaceliner

    Murray daSaw (powered by Homelite)

    I haven't named any of the others yet.... My creativity seems to be at an all-time low! :rolleyes::confused:

    IMO.... MoneyPenny is a kick*ss name!! I like the copper colored beauty!

    it all depends on how she is running :D
    if good, it's 'babe'
    if giving me problems, it's 'bi*c*' :lol:
    ...just like my cars, back when I was driving :D:D:D
  13. My first MB is named the Mystery Machine, in part to pay homage to Scooby-Doo, but also because it's varying performance is a complete mystery to me.

    Our old Columbia Tandem is Kermit...just because it's green and yes, Kermit the Frog is known to ride a bike now and then (remember the Muppet Movie??) Reason #245,674 why everyone can ride a bike, even frog puppets.

    My wife's MB is referred to as Jeeves...why....I have no idea.

    My family has seemed to name my bikes for me. Bike#1 is a classic cruiser named "Old Geezer" Bike #2 is "cry baby" because its always whinning and squealing and something wrong with it. Bike#3 is "Einstein" its my experimental hydrogen bike which ive fried many brain cells on. One of my fastest mini choppers is "JC" When my senior citizen dad takes it for a ride, he says Jesus C____st i think I sh_t my pants.

    Words alone can't describe the appreciation to Quenton for the work and patience with my endless emails. He brought back my 3/08 NE5 whizzer that was dying from quility control issues thats being polite. I therefore name from this day forward my newborn whizzer "Lee"anardo. I have informed all friends and family of the name change.

    "The Dragon Lady" is my "go to" dependable Raleigh girlie cruiser. It sports twin Mitsubishi 2.2hp engines on friction drive.

    "The Iron Dragon" is my 7-speed Raleigh cruiser. It HAD the twin Mits engines on front friction and rear chain drive.

    "BOB" is my B.O.B. trailer project w/6hp Robin OHC engine to push "The Iron Dragon".

    "Mr. Whizzard" is my 2006 Whizzer bike rescued from a college bicycle parking lot.
