V-Man's Showcase #Two - Krate Bikes VW Drag Bus Set

This VW Drag bus set was inspired by the Krate 5 speed Muscle bikes produced by the Schwinn bicycle company in the Late 60's and early 70's. Schwinn produced 6 different Krate Bikes and they are named as the orange krate,  the pea picker, the apple green krate, the lemon peeler, .the grey ghost and the cotton picker.  These bikes are very rare and and highly sought after. They were the premier muscle bike of the late 60's and early 70's.

The V-man's Hot Wheels Krate box VW Drag bus sets comes with all the colors of the original Krate Bikes. Theses customs were made about 5 years ago, and only 3 of the colors were ever produced until just recently when he finished the other 3 colors to complete the full range of Krate Bikes VW Drag buses.  With the help of Jimmy "THE BOXMAN" Chavez, they combined their efforts to develop an exclusive box set that comes with Real Riders wheels at the front and rear. The regular Krate Bikes do not have the Real Riders wheels at the rear. Till today, this is one of the most sought after Box set for VW Drag bus collectors. Only recently, one of this box set was sold on eBay for over USD1,500.

All pictures were supplied by Vince Mosley aka V-Man.
