    Hi all,

    we are not sure of the name yet..it will come with the customizing ...

    here's the base of our project, a minelli city bike... this is my Girlfriends bike Sylvie, She got the ratrod bite when she saw me working on my custom rat fink so she asked me to help her customize here bike, we will build the bike together to her liking so it's a team work here...

    we plan on keeping the multi speed derailleur system, this bike is gonna be a daily driver with ape hangers and some detailing.

    :D Thanks Guys!!

    I really enjoy working on this project with my sweetheart, Tartosuc.

    It's a lot of fun to get the creativity going and letting the wild side take over...

    The project is not over yet!! So stay tuned...

    Did you just mask the stripes and spray? I might do the same thing for one of my bikes.

    p.s. I was looking at the pics and did a double-take when I saw the 'Arret' sign. Always cool to see another Montrealer on here.
