This bike was originally going to be cut up to modify the frame of my 'Winter Build Off' bike, Retroped. However, when it arrived and I looked at it, I straight away thought of my great-great-niece who turned 6 years old at the end of November 2018 and decided that I’d build it for her.

Here’s what it looked like when it arrived...

I'll add more detail photos later in subsequent posts.

I have added the detail/closeup photos in post #8

Wow, nice transformation!
I love that it's going to your great-great-niece, you'll need to post some ride pictures when she gets it!
I delivered it personally to her for her birthday at the end of November 2018 and she tried riding it but even with the seat at it's lowest, it was still a bit big for her. Her Grandmother (my niece) said she'd send me photos and/or video of her riding it when she does.

Great work Glen!
Understated and elegant with nicely coordinated custom touches.
Thanks guys :)

Glen.

Remarkable transformation. Good thing you saw the potential in that bike because I surely didn’t - I would’ve walked right on by. Shoot, I bet it’s nicer now than when it was new. Love the hubs! Love the color scheme! Nice build.
