Like Father, Like Son

Road Trippin’ With Muscle

When Kevin Shane and his father pass by, it’s obvious they’re into the classics — classic bikes and classic muscle cars.

The father-son Shane duo are turning heads in California with their unique combination of muscle cars outfitted with bike racks.

You might see them in a metallic green Chevy Impala or a boss Chevelle, with a home-built Gary Fisher mountain bike on the trailer hitch, or old school Marin and Nishiki road bikes side-by-side on the rack up top.

Muscle Car, Muscle Rack

“People seem to really like it,” Kevin says. “One guy even jumped out of his car at a traffic light to take a picture with his cell phone.”

He and dad have been cobbling together bikes since his childhood — Kevin turns 18 this fall — and they got into racks the same way.

“A guy gave my dad some old rack equipment, he bought some new tubes, and he just made it fit the Impala,” Kevin says. “People definitely notice when we pull into the campground. It’s pretty cool.”

Sooner or later you must move down an unknown road that leads beyond the range of the imagination, and the only certainty is that the trip has to be made.
