KAWS Bike

KAWS BIKE

To celebrate Lance’s participation in the 2009 Milan-San Remo race, KAWS embraced a classic paint scheme for Lance’s “daily driver” Trek Madone, adding the distinctly Pop touch of his own reoccurring “teeth” pattern on both the frame and wheels (which instantly became two giant mouths) in an effort to subtly turn Lance’s bike into one giant, road-gobbling cartoon character.

While the bike served him well during this race, it would go down for the count shortly afterward, when Lance made a surprise, last-minute entry in the Vuelta Leon y Castilla race, during which he crashed and fractured his clavicle. Since then, KAWS’s beautiful ride has been affectionately dubbed “the widowmaker.”
