Someone's bitin off mah mufuckin' steez!!!

I just saw this on the NYC fixed forum:

Before:


After:


and mine:


Not really sure what to make of it. No idea where it came from or who built it either. Kinda crazy how the person went to all the trouble of rebuilding the frame to mimic mine. I mean, they must've seen or been inspired by my Bilenky. There's NO way this one's a coincidence...

UPDATE: Turns out some Finnish dude is the one responsible for the build. Google translation didn't really work so I was unable to read up on it much...

That's a Finnish guy's bike. Living in Slovenia at the moment. He builds choppers and stuff. One helluva skilled craftsman is what I'd call him.

Yeah, I just saw his site. Google translation didn't work too well so I wasn't able to read up on his build much...

Hey!

Its my bike. Yes, it was your bikes picture what was inspiration for my built! I found it whit Google. I didnt see those other photos in your Flirck before, looks great! Your bike was so beautifull that I wanted to make something similar out of my cycle. My bike is really fast build and its nothing to compare yours, I used around 10h whit frame job so far.
