    "Messed up kid"

    Started with an old chop job ladies frame I've had for years. 13 color spray bomb filler panels, homemade pull back bars , bottle grips , etc. Went for a mid 70s very early homemade lowrider no aftermarket days vibe. Enjoyed the contest as always!

    BO15 "Messed up kid"

    Picked up "Lucenda " a few years ago. A real "shed find ". Guy said she was an abandoned custom project and that she was built in the 70s. Who knows. The frame and fork have been modified quite a bit so I suppose toss it in class 2 just for kicks. It's a girls full-size bike bike has a...
