    Here is my project bike it's a Murray Monster i picked up that had a frozen seat post and a crack in the frame . Apparently the last owner was unable to get it apart prior to shipping and broke it off at the top of the frame tube . Long story short i was able to get it out by drilling a hole in the bottom bracket and after soaking it with PB blaster i pounded the post out with a steel rod .

    This build off gave me the oppertunity to get this bike back together .. I'm going with a Red line Hot Wheels theam bike . While this bike wont have over the top custom work just some very good detailing . After all it's a muscle bike build and i'm going more traditional style . I wondered how they would have sold if they made a line up of hot wheels bikes in odd colors with or with out Mag wheels but with Red line Tires ?
    Here i'm sorting out parts for chrome plating ..

    I'm going with a pearl blue like this .. red line

    Great theme! I don't envy what that re-chrome is going to run you, but the results will be fantastic! How do you plan on applying the paint? Mine is going to be rattle can mixed an an auto paint store.
