    For my grandson....Left over from his older sister. He dug it out of the back of the shed. He likes riding it, and he does look COOL on it! But we had to BOY it up!....Four hours later.

    It's nice to see a master's hand at work, and for a good cause.

    Looks great. I like the heat-treated chain guard. What size is that rear tire?

    Thanks! :lol: :lol:
    I wish all bikes were this easy. The hardest part was getting the glue off, from the stickers....It was so hot and humid, it felt like the paint was drying before it hit the bike. I used a vinyl upholstery dye in a rattle can, that I bought for $1 at East Coast Market 5 years ago. That stuff was fantastic.

    Blazing heat and I'm out there with a propane torch heating the guard to RED hot, he better appreciate this.
    Rear tire is 16 x 3.00

    Looks nice. Is this the 16" or 12" version? I've been wanting to get several of each for my nieces and nephews.

    It's a 16"....It takes a little time for them to get used to the rake.

    Hey Kota,

    It always makes me feel great when I see a kid riding a bike with a smile on their face :D :D

    Nice Job Grandpa!
