Bed-Stuy or Die: Brooklyn's Bike Kill
Photographed by Victor Llorente
Once described as "Mad Max with a pinch of Jackass," Black Label Bike Club's annual “Bike Kill” is a chance to witness yet another chaotic, underground, subculture of Brooklyn. Members stack and weld junk yard finds and discarded bike frames together, forming mutant creations. The group invites members to wreak havoc around industrial lots in their spookiest costumes on homemade bikes. Shut down by police at its original location in Bushwick, the event refused to live up to its name, resurrecting itself in Bed-Stuy. Photographer Victor Llorente spent Halloweekend capturing the madness.
