Details

Chester Cheetah was cool in 1992 and he is still cool today. He even has a Twitter account. If you are interested in being cool and having a Twitter account, this is your bicycle. It even has an interesting story – Crayola Crayon and Cheetos teamed up for the Color My World promotion. They ordered 1500 bikes from a company in Taiwan, but only 1000 bikes ended up being made. During the trip over, the ship was caught in a bad storm, the ship’s entire load shifted and crushed many of the bikes. The insurance adjuster wrote off about 650 as being damaged and the crew was ordered to throw the damaged bikes overboard. The remaining bikes made it to a warehouse in the USA. About 150 were taken home by Cheetos executives and the remaining 200 bikes were put on display in stores and given out as the first prize for the promotion between 1987 and 1992. The bicycle is even listed in the book “The Evolution of the Bicycle 2.” There is even an original entry form for the promotion tucked in to the “gas tank.” This bike features a front caliper brake and a rear side-pull, both operated by hand brake levers. The painted front fender encases nearly half of the wheel and spokes - a stylistic bonus. The chain guard is also oversized, extending past the back of the rear wheel. There is a black vinyl seat, black foam grips on slightly raised handlebars that also mount house two rear view mirrors. This bike also features a rear generator that powers three front headlights, mounted at the headset. The generator appears to be fully functional and the center lamp still gives a faint flow when you pedal the bike in a stand however the side lamps are not giving off any light and we are uncertain of the reason for this. Cruiser bikes are about style, and this one has plenty. Purple paint with black cheetah spots, an extended front fork, chrome chain guard, plus extras like a license plate ("Cheetos"), a top tube bag designed to fill the space that would be a gas tank, and a twin water bottle pack atop the bottom bracket designed to look like a motorcycle engine. The bike rides, well, like a chopper. The paint is in fantastic condition, with one mark on the front fender (see pictures). The tires are original, but are cracking, so should be replaced if the bike is to be a rider instead of a display. We recommend a tune up after it has been shipped. Great for a collector of rare cruiser bikes and Cheetos enthusiast. Serial #TS92022024 Reference #162419 .

This bike is in very nice shape with minimal dents or nicks.  Only the tires seem to have suffered from sitting in storage, but the bike still rides. See photographs for details.  
The Cheesy Rider has been cleaned up by our professional bicycle mechanics.  We recommend a tune up after it has been shipped.   Great for a collector of rare cruiser bikes and Cheetos enthusiast.
