Exactly! [emoji38]Great work, Dad! My kid keeps asking me to strip the lettering off his Boogie.
"But Dad, you said it was MY bike."
"No. I said you could use it."
I got these to Electras a few years ago and have been working on them for my kids. i wasn't in too much of a rush because they were too big and neither could ride without assistance. They graduated to 2 wheels last summer. My sons is an 8ball and hers is a Little Betty. The 8ball wasn't in too bad of shape, just normal kid wear. I powdercoated the frame matte black and painted the wheels solid red. Also put on white walls. I had picked up a Rat Fink for my daughter and was going to lightly 'girl it up' but she wanted paint it and everything. I didn't want to destroy the originality of it so sold it stupid cheap ([emoji34]) and found this Little Betty. It was way worse than it looked in the photos and almost walked but he ended up dropping it to like $25. The fenders were shot and paint was faded. The original plan was to put a springer front on it, but the one I bought wouldn't fit. I repainted it Sergeant Gold and clear coated it. The kids were so excited to get them finished. Anyone know where I can get new Electra head badges?

When I stripped the 8ball they had them on the Electra site. They are gone now. My LBS, who sells Electra, couldn't find them for meNice rebuilds for the kiddos!
Try joining the Electra Bike pages on Facebook, I’ve scored several parts on there. There are a few Electra resellers/shops that have parts for sale all the time, I think I even saw some headbadges recently
