Best Christmas Gift Ever! (Sorry Mom)

Surly Pugsley/Big Dummy rider and customer Richard Chambers delivered the most thoughtful gift of the season. Richard sourced the stainless flask, flask cage and graphics from three separate companies and put together this incredible gift. Not to mention that the flask was also filled with 18 year old scotch. In addition, the flask comes with a custom stainless funnel for refills. THANKS! From the crew at Colonel's.
