~Rafael~
Yes Rafael, A Schwinn S2 wheel, went from 28 to 56 holes when I pulled the sturmey coaster from an S7, and doubled the holes for each. 55 spokes, because one lined up perfectly with the valve stem.

Thanks, im glad you like it. Yes, it started out as a Bratz, built by LowRider, when they were making them. There is another Bratz bike in Class 2 also.
Really enjoyed: following ,this build.
Thanks KJV. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks Scribble. This year I tried to keep in line with the brain bikes.


A cool reflective pic that was a bit washed out.

Retouched it with a little black and white.

That's one wild ride. Some great detail work. Enjoyed watching this one.
Thanks Chad. I appreciate the compliments. I am glad you enjoyed it.

I enjoyed yours and everyone else's comments and builds.

Some credit goes to the participation with this build. Seat and a few other things were worked out as I went along. I appreciate everyone's input, it would not be the bike I made without it.

Great bunch of folks on here.
You would have never convinced me purple and yellow could look so good together. Well done, its definitely a stand out.
Thanks Falstaff.

It was a gamble early on the combo, but once the colors were together, it seemed to pop. I think the red hue in the paint helped the match.

I also thought Tiger'ed out the yellow seat with the same paint, helped to blend it a bit.
That pic with the glass block and concrete it your money shot....high roller outside Vegas casino.....Nice work! Very kool!
Thanks OJ. It does look Casino-ish now that you mention it.

This is one of my other fav's out of that group.
