1996 Heavy Tools Screamer

1996 Heavy Tools Screamer

Rare BMX from back in the day.

Brought from Billys in Cambridge I had to change the crank to a larger one for the indoor skate parke aka Radlands Northampton.

1988: KHE was founded by Thomas Goering, a passionate freestyler from Karlsruhe  and his older brother Wolfgang Goering. The first offered product was a peg (Do-Peg), made with a small drilling machine (Value: ca. 350 Euro).

A bit of history FYI:

Back in the days, we produced a shirt with the print "Kinky Huge Elephant" on it because everybody asked us about the meaning of "KHE".
But the truth is, KHE is just a short cut of our home town Karlsruhe. Karlsruhe (KHE) is a city with 300.000 inhabitants and a lot of history: In 1817 the first bicycle was invented from "Freiherr von Drais" and it was called the "Draisine". The first car was built in Karlsruhe, too. It was in the year 1886 and Carl Benz (from Daimler-Benz) manufactured the first automobile.
