Anyone remember "Get Back" whips?

Definitely old school.....found a great store for them- ordered my black/red one.

There's a history behind these old-school biker or "getback" whips. Back in the day, you'd see bikers sporting whips - hanging from their clutch or brake levers as they rode. The leather whips were usually made from the biker's club colors - to display their colors and for club recognition. But the whips were a whole lot more than just leather club colors. A biker whip could be quickly released and used "in case of emergency."

I thought that was what the hunk of lock up chain or pipe slipped over the shifter was for. We didn't have no fancy leather weavers. Chain is pretty hard on the frame paint, but most bikes only had $10 in paint....not this fancy stuff these days.

I do know two individuals that can explain why you should be sure not to get your fingers in the links of chain you might be swinging around....should the chain leave suddenly with something you hit.

I think JS diamond had some for sale a while back. I would post get back whips in the dont do this at home section seen a (get back whip ) get tangled in an open belt drive once, we were getting back alright when he was slappin all over the highway. I think those were good in the days before open belts ? just my opinion, but i guess they work cause when someones ridin i "get back" I think a good old mouth full of chewing tobacco gets people back pretty good, of course its a felony in some parts to spit on people ?? what is this country coming too?

Don't bring a whip to a gunfight? I don't think I'd want to get it stuck in my chain, belt, or wheel.

Whips belong in the bedroom, not on your bike. The whole fringe leather shit hangin from yer bike just looks kinda gay to me. Just my opinion.

This whole sights about opinions John. Nobody has to ask. Would be pretty damn boring if nobody offered. Now theres other opinions in this thread too but your taking it personal because you happen to like the whip. So be it.
