BRAND NEW!!!!..." Scrapertown"

Never Before Seen..Til Now....The Latest Short Documentry Of The "Scraper Bike King"..

Coming To A Film Festival Near You..

This is a beautiful new film about the Scraper Bike scene in Oakland, featuring Baybe Champ, The Scraper Bike King. You should watch it now!

“Scraper Bikes is definitely a process, and that process is definitely for the kids so they can get their mind off of what’s really goin’ on on these streets, and give them at least that hour, or two hours, to fix on their bikes. You know that hour or two hours of a life change, you feel me? Or a life saved, cuz Scraper Bikes is definitely saving a lot of these kids’ lives.”


Hit that “full screen” option. This film is so gorgeous, it should be viewed big as possible.

Terrific film. I had the chance to see your presentation at the Social Enterprise Alliance conference in San Francisco and loved it when you said: "What I really want to is start a nonprofit to help kids!"

Am blogging about it on our blog, Nonprofit Street.
