    found it by the trash. just like it is good enough for me but girls like sparkles and shiny stuff.

    going to paint it green met. effect. with strawberry effect met. pin stripes and logos. all that matters to me is she likes it.

    hey upper class
    i was almost a little disapointed to see you had posted yours first
    thought i would be orignal
    but it sounds like we will go different directions with our builds
    although it's kool that both of us will have the same starting point
    should be interesting
    not sure on the year thinking someone told me they were from the 60's
    i did see a red one last summer at bicyclericks shop
    kool little bike
    i know your little one will love it and ride the tires right off it
    lets get this show on the road

    i will be posting very few pics till i'm done. i'll throw you a crum here and there but i know first hand how showing off ideas can be a downfall in a competition.

    i tore apart the old seat and found my first problem.

    so i told sissy LET"S TEAR DOWN!! and she jumped right in.

    wheels and tires are shot. so new are on.
    everthing else was good. bearing, nuts, bolts, even stock pedals are good.

    i think the hardest part of it all will be redoing the pinstriping on the tank.. gunna do it by hand. first time layin lines von dutch style.

    If you want that exact pattern, I would take a piece of tracing paper and trace the whole thing, then transfer it to a thin piece of cardboard. use an exacto knife (carefully) and cut the pattern out and use it as a stencil to spray paint the white on the tank.

    most will be by hand but the arrow emblem and Crackerella(kids nickname :mrgreen: )
    on the chain guard will be done with vinyl stencles from work. i have use of a high end computer and a vinyl cutter.

    i was foolin around with paper and found i would be better off just covering them with blue vinyl now.
    prep and paint less clear peel it and lay color in by hand then clear it.
    then it would have a nice edge to keep the hand painted area looking clean on the edges.

    good lookin out. thanks for the response
