    Put a little filler on the welds to smooth them out. Gonna sand those tomorrow and hopefully put some paint on it. Gotta get some sleep, racing my bmx tomorrow.

    Looks better with the seat lower. Might need a longer brake cable if I move the bars up at all. I might also try the lights in a lower position. PicsArt_08-04-08.40.39.jpg

    Got the chain on and brakes adjusted. Lowered the lights too. Took it for a spin around the block. Gonna put a longer brake cable on it. PicsArt_08-05-07.38.03.jpg

    Cut out my panel and put the decals on it. The STP decal is vintage. Also put on a vintage set of pink bmx fork stands. I have a few more ideas that I might try after this weekend. Racing bmx all weekend.

    Your build has it's own style, dig it! It's almost Picasso-ish with it's dropped face and arms coming out below it's waist. Arty! They say 'pink is the new black'. You've got em both covered.

    Can't wait for the ride video ~ ! :cool:

    Still don't like how the lights mount. I have some other brackets I might try.

    Took it to the bmx track tonight. Everyone loved it. Used it as my pit bike. A few things left to do and I'll call it done. 20190809_221146.jpg
