The Scraper Bike Team empowers urban youth living in underserved communities through self-expression and creativity. We encourage youth entrepreneurship and promote healthy, sustainable living for all. The Scraper Bike Team will use each work of bicycle art to impact social justice and global change.

Our story

Oakland CA is the birthplace of the Original Scraper Bikes, coined by Tyrone Stevenson Jr. in 2006. This unique styled bicycle phenomenon has umpired into a global movement, due to its music video: ‘Scraper Bikes’ that went viral on YouTube with over 3 million views worldwide.

The Scraper Bike Movement offers youth a sustainable group of peers that is positive and motivating. We want to expand and enlighten young peoples perspective on life through fixing and painting bicycles. Our goal is to support youth entrepreneurship and cultural innovation.
