    Here's what I'm starting with. Have a lay back seat post and cloud nine seat so far.
    Just need an nice set of black Apes to get me styling. :eek:
    Would that seat look better on a straight seat post? 01.jpg 02.jpg

    Forgot that I'll have 4 brake/shift cables to change when I add the apes. :13:

    Plus this thing does not even come with a kickstand.

    Anyone have any ideas for a kickstand for this bike?

    Any damage to the paint finish after removing the stickers? Did you just peel them or use some kind of a solution?

    To peel them off I use the hair dryer and then some goof off that you can buy like a little lighter can fluid

    Might have too much neon green if I peel them all off. :43:

    What ya think?

    I went the 'fat BMX' route with mine. Pulled the modern cheesy stickers off and replaced them with a set of vintage ones from Smoopy.

    Might return this green Juneau and get the Mongoose Vinson. Just can't decide on the white or burgundy Vinson.

    I like the frame of the Vinson much better. What ya think?
