Amazing facts-The Gator bike

The Gator bike

When someone hands you lemons, the old adage is to make lemonade. But when someone hands you an alligator killed by state officials? You make a chopper motorcycle, naturally.

Such was the decision by Jim Jablon, owner of a Wildlife Rehab centre in Hernando, Florida specializing in the care of neglected and abused exotic pets. In order to raise money for the center, he took an $80,000 custom-built chopper and spread the alligator skin all over it; while mounting the head on the handle bars. A speedometer is implanted in the back of the skull.

The “Gatorbike” will be raffled off for $100 a ticket — with 1,000 tickets total being offered. Needless to say, the animals and clinic stand to benefit greatly. As well as the lucky scary person who desires a ride of this nature. If Woody Harrelson weren’t a vegan, I’d say his character from Zombieland would have been right at home on this thing.
