You can always mouth that sword on your bike, like a knight in shinging armor. Or, convert your bike like one of those cool cars in that old movie Death Race 2000 with spikes and stuff.

Do share Ken! The Alley is a cool store. I go there everytime I'm down in that area. I haven't been there in awhile though. Do they still have the Predator statue there? I thought they expanded a bit. POST PICS!!!!!!

Ken, it was actually a present from a friend of mine for being a best man at his weeding... It even has my name engraved on it.

The alley is a pretty wild store. You can find a lot of "off the mainstream" stuff there (that area in general too (can you believe I get my haircut up there. Just be careful of some of the prices. They sometimes mark up some of these "import" items quite a bit. I've got a Garuda in my place that they are selling for like $400 dollars but my Dad got it in Indo for way less (I guess they are just rare in these parts). Architectural Revolution is attached to the alley and they've got some pretty cool plaster items (columns, etc.) that you can use for in front of the fireplace, as tv stands, etc. (they'll even paint them to your liking).

man I haven't been there in years. I bought my first pair of black stretch jeans there (before you say anything, it was the 80's ). I remember when they had an Alley at Woodfield mall, (late '70's or early '80s) the top shelf of the wall was lined with bongs, try to get away with that now.
