skin1.5(y2K) Original Berlin tire belts ©
Made from high quality recycled bike tires, each belt is one of a kind, carrying with it its own street history. Durable and environmentally friendly they make for great birthday, christmas or chanuka presents.

With the foundation of the KGB Mutant-Bike Gang Berlin in 2006 Verrücktritt expanded its bicycle repertoire into the unlimited realm of mutant bike building. Chopped, flexed and welded these recycled creations breathe new life into unwanted or abandoned bikes.
These bikes are not for sale, but contact us for information about upcoming events or – if you want – help creating your own personal mutant creations.

Return of the Recycle-a-Bike Mutant-Bike Workshop 2010

Suse Bruha from Fritz Radio also dropped in on the workshop and found a chance between our grinding and welding to talk with us about the project. Listen to her radio reportage below or here.
The K.G.B’s Mutant-Bike Building Instruction Manuals
These two mutant-bike building manuals were designed and collaged by Maxfield from The K.G.B for Verrücktritt. They were passed out to participants at Verruecktritt’s mutant-bike building workshops. Printed on folded A4 colored paper they outline the basic concepts of two mutant-bike designs: The Chopper and The Tall Bike (though anything is possible)!
