    Hey guys I have an 80's Randor freestyle kick scooter. I got this off craigslist for forty bucks. I bought to just ride around and have some fun with it. I never intended to make it a project but you know how that goes. So let me gather up all the photos and I'll post em on a bit.

    Re: Kicking It!! paint and wheels

    Ok now the paint begins. For the frame I chose a powder blue with a satin clear coat over it. The forks and Handle bars were done in a gloss red whit a gold flake painted over it then a clear gloss.

    So it was back to the old rims

    Ok here it is all finished. Lots of new parts. Deck and rims are the only things left untouched.

    All the decals on the frame were designed by myself and cut out by my brother. Check us out on the link below on Facebook!!

    Hi, can you throw an old guy a bone here? My wife picked up a Randor scooter out of someone's trash. It has a busted wheel and I've spent HOURS online trying to find parts. The only thing I can find are these dinky 100 mm wheels, but I'm looking for something like 8½" like you show in these pictures. Where can I shop for some new wheels?
