HAHAH, it looks like a Chia Pet.
Painted the raggedy green grips that came with the bike.
Lime Ice of course...
sent from a banana phone...
Take it from me, MC is a bit of a fabric fiend....with an eye for style that can't be matched!
There you go! Nice idea on the grips.
The little details... AS seatclamp
Lime Ice painted grips
Chromed kicker from a 26" and Chia Polo Seat
Come on sunlight...
Looks great! That stance makes me want to hop on and try to wheelie it as I ride away. Looks fun.
It wheelies SO EASY... Too easy.
Ima need Wheelie Bars to keep it down.
Someone killed Oscar the grouch, cleaned the hide and made a seat!
Hajaha, I was wondering if that were an Oscar Skin Rug that Carl used... or maybe Merle hunted it down...
Chia Pimp the Grouch...
Well I just found way back in post #24 that "I just can't do lime..." Haha. The color has grown on me, it's the flake in it. This is the second time I've used a Testors spray paint on a bike. I've got a couple more ideas yet to try before the deadline... we'll see.
Sick build that shaggy seat is wild well done
That paint shines in the sun!
I'm sure, much like yours, the photos don't do it justice. The Lime Ice has a sparkle to it and I covered the whole thing in DupliColor Effex which added a multicolor microflake to the white and blended it into the Lime so well. I'm more than happy. Someday I'll be shooting flake but for now this is as close as it gets.
Sweet looking chopper! Nice steerable setup too looks like.
Beautiful job on the paint and it's properly "Carled-up" now with the shag seat.
Excellent offering Carl...
I've been looking back over the builds and this is my favorite build of both classes!!! Great build brother.
