    20" Schwinn Buddy for my daughter's birthday last month. I turned it into a mini Pee-wee Herman bike, to match my full size one.

    Pretty much scrap in most eyes.

    It provided an opportunity to build a bike for my then girlfriend, now fiance as a Christmas present. She is in love with it and it now is getting skirt guards and a Shimano 3-speed.

    I'm diggin' the beer can bike!
    Here are a couple of my builds.
    My first build started as a Torker Bermuda frame and chainguard.

    [​IMG]

    I created a retro cruiser with no black whatsoever. Believe me, it's not easy!

    [​IMG]

    This Felt Troy Lee Spray is too busy for my taste, but the bike itself is super-sick!

    [​IMG]

    Here it is in present form. Not shown are a New Belgium 2011 license plate and NB headbadge.
