Original Scraper Bikes


The Scraper Bike History

The Scraper Bike Movement has been around for about 5-6 years and is now starting to get exposure worldwide. We recently put a video on Youtube.com and watched it touch people all over the country as well as the world. The video is at 2.6 million views and still going. Scraper Bikes has been featured in countless events such as, The Birth of The Cool Remix (Artistic Individualism), The Black, Red and Green: Living Word Festival (Green Society/ Spare the Air) and The International Bicycle Film Festival (Health/ Motor Skills). Along with countless interviews from NPR, to The Christian Science Monitor (Stop the violence) to Current TV; Scraper Bikes have been getting a lot of positive feedback from people around the world (Communities of Unity). We have set up a lot of events over the past few years to bring awareness of this grassroots movement (Free for All). Oakland is the birth place of the Scraper Bikes. We plan on creating a bicycle shop that focuses on customizing bicycles, bicycle repair skills, and youth mentoring services. We plan on creating a sustainable, positive, educational, and "Green" way of life in the inner city.

The Mission
The Scraper Bike Movement seeks to capture the creativity of youth living within dangerous communities. It gives them a positive outlet that is fun, educational, and promotes healthy lifestyles. The Scraper Bike Movement offers youth a sustainable group of peers that is positive and motivating. We want to expand and enlighten young peoples perspective on life through fixing and painting bicycles. Our goal is to support youth entrepreneurship and cultural innovation.

The Music
The Music Behind the Scraper Bike Movement brings together the Green Collar Movement, The Bicycle Culture, and Bay Area Hip Hop all in one. Baybe Champ The Scraper Bike King (Tyrone Stevenson Jr.), a member of the popular rap group known as The Trunk Boiz has put together a solo music project that highlight this Grassroots Movement, with eco-friendly and kid-friendlyy lyrics. The upcoming Scraper Bike album is sure to have a positive effect on the world, due to our positive inpack of our community.
