Here's a partial tab for the live version
of Kottke's Busted Bicycle.  The rest of the
live version corresponds more or less to the
tab for the 6 & 12 String version(available from
Accent on Music,  address and other info given
below)  except for a few variations
which are easy to distinguish at normal speed.
And this live version is on at least two
"Best of..." releases.

Leo changes where he applies damping,  accenting,  
and that special striking of the open 1st string 
to make the strobe-like *busted* rhythm more 
effective than on the 6 & 12 version.  
The end is different too.

The tuning is open-C.  

here's one substitution for the Hanson tab:

or here's a surprise:

and the ending directly follows something like the third variation
above(the one with the mute right before the last three notes of 
the last measure):
