Mike

Breaking Away

Rock the late 70's track racing style of Breaking Away's Mike, one of the four members of Bloomington, Indiana's famed Cutters bike gang.

First, you need a properly outfitted red racing helmet. We found ours at a local Army Navy surplus store. Use paint or tape to dial in the detailing.

Next, you need the shirt. We just happen to have the Cutters shirt, made to spec, right down to the racing number 34 on the back.

Then you'll need some fraying beige or off-white short shorts. Or jorts, which are are equally acceptable. The shorter, the more authentic and keeping with the period.

You'll also need some wavy hair; in keeping with the times, it should be treated with a hairdryer. Our model graciously sported his unkempt, so no wig was need. Add angry scowl for effect.

And finally, a pair of ratty Converse or similar running trainers; pair with white anklet socks and you're good to go!

This year, race through Halloween on a group ride! Pull together three of your friends and form a Cutters team - Dave, Moocher, Mike, and Cyril - for Halloween!
