Coverboys


Larry and Harry had an extra beer this weekend,celebrating their first frontcover.

The Pink Performer



What do you give to the man who has everything?
According to Larry and Harry the answer is:a hifi stereo from Klara Geist!

A couple of weeks ago Fanny and Willi from Klara Geist in Berlin,delivered this wondermachine in the Bullitt shop in Copenhagen.Knowing that they had ordered a stereo,customized for a Bullitt,our two friends were mute when they saw and heard The Pink Performer.Sounding like a sweet rockn´roll dream and looking like an accessory from Gay Pride,the Performer is a machine never seen or heard before!Made for wireless entertainment for 500 people,this is the ultimate partymachine.

Drop by the shop for a soundtest or listen up;it might turn up in a street near you....

Bullitt vs Porsche



What do Larry and Harry have in common with Steve McQueen?
-Bullitt is the name of their first cargobike,Harrys middlename and the name of Steve in the movie "Bullitt".
-the fascination of vehicles.
-the fascination of racing these vehicles.
So when a german friend told,that he knew where a racingcar,once owned by Mr McQueen,was,they didn´t hesitate to contact the new owner.It happened to be an engineer from Bavaria,who owns and still races the car.He kindly offered the guys to take some photos of the Bullitt and his car together.What a nice guy!

So far,only a few photos have come out from the photographer,but please enjoy this:The Bullitt ® Milk Plus and the Porsche 908 in which Steve McQueen became second in the 1970 Sebring Race.

The way to success according to Larry and Harry


Lately we have been writing about breaking the rules,in order to obtain a successful life.It is true,that rules are made to be broken,but there are some main headlines,that you cannot change.
This picture clearly shows,that even the anarchists rock´n rollers of The Who knew,that without a great hair-do,no success!

Kjeldby 2.0


A couple of weeks ago,we mentioned a guy,Kjeldby,who had done a 15000 kilometer,riding on a Bullitt Classic as a messenger.
Last thursday he popped by the shop in Copenhagen,just to buy himself a brand new Bluebird´71 Ext.He and his friend had decided to open up there own window cleaning company.As an experienced urban bikerider,he knew,that the fatsest way to get around inside the city,even if you have to carry some stuff,is on a Bullitt!
It pleases Larry and Harry to see,that a couple of youngsters don´t let themself fool by the common idea of ideal transportation.
By choosing the same way of transportation as their grandfathers,these blokes show themself as a visionary and modern company.
Traditional,yes;oldfashioned,no!

Transportation in 2009


When you establish a company,you will usually do the following 3 things:
1.Get a VAT-number
2.Rent a shop,a workshop or an office.
3.Buy a car or a van.
Larry and Harry have a shop and a workshop and they have also achieved a VAT-number.But as a producer of cargobikes,they felt it was like cheating,also to have a van.A van is a helpful friend in alot of situations but it is also a polluting,expensive,old-fashioned and stupid way to transport your butt from A to B!The main purpose of the Bullitt,is actually to offer a real alternative to this fuel-burning madness.

So,how does it actually work,when bikes has to be transported,from the workshop to the shop or from the shop to the customer?
This paparazzi shot of Harry,shows how it is being done.He is actually riding 4 Bullitts:A Bluebird between his legs,a Chuck as a handhorse and 2 disassembled Clockworks in a cartonbox on a trailer.
Madness?
No,rethink transportation;cars are just so much last year!

The remains of the garage


In the garage


A very popular part of the MTV-program,where the stars are showing their cribs,is when they open up their garages.Isn´t it great to see all these expensive rarities,that only a true specialist and multi-millionaire could keep?To see the racingdrivers own choice?
Today Larry and Harry opens up their garages,to show the choices of two specialist.Now it´s time to let the world know,what these two guys really want to ride.

First we pay a visit to Harry´s garage,a warm,dry and cosy place;the perfect place for a great collection of bicycles.Here you will find a ´76 Bianchi racingbike,a XTR-equipped Klein mountainbike,a Christianiabike with trailer,a ´52 Long John,a handbuilded Dawes tandem and 2 rickshaws.Or more precisely;you would find,because two years ago a bunch of burglars emptied the garage!Fortunately he has been given a Bullitt Bluebird´71,so he is happy!


Larry has been the owner of many beautiful bikes too,somehow he just seems to forget where he parks his bikes.When Harry got his Bluebird,Larry was given a Clockwork.Two lucky guys!
Lately the stock has become a little low,and when a customer wanted a Clockwork and didn´t matter a few scratches,Harry sold him Larry´s Clockwork.
Now Larry is the happy rider of all kind of rental bikes!

Bestseller?

The bestselling Bullitt-model ever:The Clockwork!

Kjeldby


This guy,Kjeldby,was the first messenger to ride the Bullitt.As a part of the transport company Bring,he was riding the Bullitt,no matter rain or snow.If you could talk about a testpilot when it comes to bikes,Kjeldby was the man.He maintained the bike in order to make it run every day for 8 months.
When he stopped as a messenger,the Bullitt had a history of 15000 Copenhagen kilometers.

Harry 1 - Cycle Chic 0

Bullitt Heels
It ain't always only the serious business of high heels and cool cargo bikes for Cycle Chic and Larry vs Harry.

Sometimes it's just necessary to meet up and eat good burgers, drink good beer/cider and play some [not very] serious pool on Copenhagen evenings.

It was Cycle Chic vs Harry last night in a thrilling best of nine pool championship.
It went right to the wire with Harry pulling off the impossible and winning 5-4.

The prize was provided by Kelly, a Bullitt customer in New York, and since Mikael from Cycle Chic doesn't have a dog and Harry has Skipper the Cargo Bike King, maybe the right man won. [or maybe that's why Mikael... um... let him win...]

Larry and Harry on Tour Part 3

Some of our readers have claimed,that the pilgrimage to the Eurobike fair,was just a bad excuse for partying and drinking beers.This is absolutely not true!
Our two brave heroes did make it to the fair and they made a great exhibition with the Bullitt bikes.At the picture below you can see Harry working at his computer.After so many hours under the bright lights of their booth,he is forced to wear sunglasses during this hard work.
After a day of hard work,the men of honor rewarded themselves with a big mouthful of fresh bavarian air and a little sunshine for their pale skin.
Later it came to their knowledge,that one of the other bicycle companies at the fair had been bodypainting some girls in order to sell more bikes.Some guys just don´t know how to take business serious and why don´t they announce happenings like that!?

Larry and Harry on Tour Part 2

For those of our faithful readers,who have been waiting anxiously to see if Larry and Harry actually made it out of Berlin,we now bring Part 2 of the Tour de Eurobike.
Waking up at the bottom of a beercan,our two brave boys jumped into their van,and headed for the south.What seems to be an eternity later,they arrived their hotel;a bavarian wet dream in the middle of an apple plantation.
Life couldn´t be more different from the Berlin madness they had been a part of.
Meeting up with the Terminator of Porto,Steff,they now started living the countrylife.Bikeassembling and picnics became the new life.So then it happened as a symbol of harmony and beauty:Larry changed his urban dancingshoes into sandals....

The Champ

#1


In April,we were racing with Bullitts in the Danish Cargobike Championship.Though we won the relay,we were beaten by a spoke in the final.In May we went to Berlin with Team Bullitt for the European Championship for Messengers.Four bikes in Top 5 is fantastic,but we missed the gold.Yesterday morning the cargobikes raced at the Messenger World Championship in Tokyo,CWMC.As you maybe remember the 4-time worldchampion,Erik Zo,had joined Team Bullitt for this event.But it was Angus from the Trackbike Shop in Copenhagen,who took the gold.Usually Angus is riding a Bilenky but yesterday he rode a pink Bullitt.

Larry & Harry loves Erik & Angus!

The Hand of the Champ


I had a call the other day from San Fransisco.The guy in the other end where pretty enthusiastic;it sounded like he was jumping up and down,screaming and laughing.Despite this his prensentation was clear:"My name is Erik ZO and I am the reigning freight bike world champion!".In the discussion that followed,I realized that he wasn´t only the reigning champ,but four time world champion.What he wished from me was to be allowed to be a part of Team Bullitt at The World Messenger Championship in Tokyo 2009!
We are honored to be chosen by this legend!!
Not only a pair of excellent legs but also a fantastic personality and best of all:His grandparents were Danish citizens.

So during the championship, Erik will be as Danish as rødgrød and Bullitt.

Eurobike 2009


Like last year,Larry and Harry will be found at the Eurobikefair in Friederichshafen.From the 2.nd to the 5.th of September they will show their Bullitts and the newest accessories.Drop by for a chat and a beer.
