Tool Bike

Season 1, Episodes 14&15 Original Airdates 12/08/03 12/15/03 Built for Snap-on tools, the "Tool Bike" incorporated several unfinished and untempered tools supplied to OCC by Snap-on. The frame was created using solid hex shaped metal bars (inspired by allen wrenches) instead of the more typical round tubing. The metal bars were hollowed out and bent by "Racing Innovations" resulting in a heavier then normal frame. Following the "allen wrench" theme, Paul Jr. bent sheets of 16 gauge cold rolled steel to create hex shaped exhaust covers. A fake oil tank was made in the shape of a miniature toolbox (the real oil tank was hidden on the bottom of the frame). The entire bike was sprayed with Snap-on's official red paint. As a hidden detail, an authentic ratchet was modified and used as kickstand.
