Scraper Bike Portraits

California photographer Leo Docuyanan took portraits of the men and boys of Oakland’s Scraper Bike team.

Orange with bling

You can hear Scraper Bike’s latest track “On the Scene” at the Original Scraper Bikes blog. They say there’s a free MP3 download too, but that doesn’t work.


Video by California Is A Place. Props to my friend Kit, who writes, “Never underestimate the power of good people with a passion for the bicycle. Even in East Oakland. Especially in East Oakland.” This video is good stuff, and I’ve met the Scraper Bike King Baby Champ and he’s good people.

This kid has heart. Champ Stevenson started promoting Scraper Bikes in Oakland when he was still a teen and is still going strong with it.

How long before we see Mormon missionaries on Scraper Bikes?
