“Ghost” Pride Kustoms Ukraine
There is beauty in the lines of the past, and in this sense Pride Kustoms “Ghost” offers up the spirit of nostalgia - and the feel of days gone by. Coloring on the “Ghost” is subdued rather than bright and flamboyant, it’s like a glimpse into a time we know only from sepia tinted photographs. It has a certain aura about it too, like a bike that was hidden away in a basement for 75 years, awaiting rediscovery and admiration. It is the re-creation of an idea that existed in the mind of its creator. This is the past as it should have been, and in this sense it is a dream come true - an amazing attribute - in light of the fact that this machine is brand spanking new.
Its frame is reminiscent of those found on bicycles and motorbikes produced a century ago; a time when cycles were fashioned by small firms with original ideas. Progressive builders like Ukraine’s “Pride Kustoms” are searching for the best of the old and the new - to conquer the challenges that exist on modern streets. “Ghost” offers the look of a classic - with the performance of modern technology.
2-1/4 inch Brick tires mount to large rims, which are painted the same shade of brown displayed on the frame and fork. A three speed hub was selected for rider ease, and is controlled by a modern stick shift mounted slightly forward of the seat. The front end is a modern knee action springer type, with its truss rods modified to resemble those found on early competition forks. The seat is a black hairpin type saddle, with multiple springs in the rear for maximum comfort.
The handlebars are low pullbacks with a cross bar, and are perfect company for the classic feel this bike radiates. As a final topper we find wooden handgrips on the bar ends – a small but important nod to history - it finalizes the spirit of what this bike has endeavoured to accomplish.
