Jessi Combs Tiny Strider Build
This is the Jessi Combs Tiny Strider Build tribute bike that is created by the Jessi Combs Foundation (JCF) team. This tribute Tiny Custom Strider build includes many distinguished “Jessi” elements.
The build incorporates her signature polka dots, the blue streak in her hair, and feathers which she often wore. They extracted the “J” of Jessi’s authentic signature to form the lower bar bends and inlaid her iconic initials as a gold seal. The overall aesthetic is a nod to the design of Jessi’s original tiny Strider built for the Flying Piston Benefit. This includes flipping the frame to laced leather accents.
We are proud of the skills the JCF scholarship women showcased and included:
- Custom paint
- Leather work
A big thank you all for the opportunity to participate in such a meaningful way, and we hope the bike will bring in high bidders to support All Kids Bike!, ” said Kayce Smith, Jessi Combs Foundation.
JCF Scholarship Team build participants:
- @theoriginalhannah – Hannah Stout (Class of 2020)
- @ladylandzoe – Zoe Carmichael (Class of 2021)
- @21_bogues – Kaygen Bogle (Class of 2022)
Whether she was helping women share stories about their motorcycles at Women & Wheels Bike Show, or supporting the Flying Piston Benefit, or joining in on the fun had at CAMP ZERO, Jessi’s involvement and the depth of her friendship with the community is something we are truly grateful for.
