  • An art bike was parked against a pole on North Main Street outside of Agave eatery. A man at the taco counter, seemingly accustomed to passers-by being curious about the cool ride, said, "That's Charlie's bike. Just a sec, I'll get him."
    From the back of the kitchen came Charlie Hunter, a thin guy with a smart smile and a willingness to tell his tale.
    Strung around his neck on a leather cord were two pewter wolf heads framing a white pendant of a dancing monkey. "It's Hanuman," he explained, "the Hindu god of mischief." Piercings, tats and chagrin added to his "Thunderdome" style.
    Outside, he cozied up to his bike and said that he got it in a trade at the 2010 Burning Man art festival in the Nevada desert.
    He had walked into a camp and some of the camp members decided he needed a bike. He can't remember what he traded for it.
