I cant begin to describe how incredibly cool it is!


can you powdercoat the frame black for a better match? And why does it have a headlight?



Very cool. Your son's a lucky kid

I wanted to powder coat the frame, but he won't let me take it away that long, cause he rides almost everyday.

Not sure shy it has a headlight, cause its not street legal. He just rides from our circle down to the next (a couple of blocks)...not much traffic and he knows to stop at the signs.

Well believe me that is impressive. In the "before" & "rebuilt" stages. I simply did not realize they looked so much like the real thing. Mind you my knowledge goes way back to the late 80s in what we called "mini bikes" of 49cc.

Nope it was him, more than once!!! Lets see...he has lowsided into some gravel, hit a curb, and ran into the back of the neighbor kid who has one just like it. He got right back on after each fall.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
