The Guinness Grinder Custom Fixie

Sometimes you have to build something really cool for yourself and that’s exactly what Noel did. The concept started with a bottle of Guinness Stout. It turns out that beer labels can be used as head badges on a bicycle. Noel custom painted an entry-level Benotto bicycle from the early eighties with a black and tan theme to resemble a Guinness draught beer. He added other accents to the bike from the beer bottle such as the label from the back of the bottle with some gold pinstripe accents. He also used the beer cap on the top of the stem which looks sweet. The bicycle is equipped with sealed bearings throughout. It also has a vintage 1973 brooks saddle. The bicycle is complete with a vintage Campagnolo bottle opener purchased new in 1984 which sits conveniently behind the bottle cage. To top off the build Noel found Guinness water bottles! Since this bike turned out so awesome there will be more theme bikes coming in the future.
