    Transgender will not be necessary.
    Girl power can be Cool, strong and feminine all at the same time.
    Early models of the SLIK CHIK are good examples.
    This Collegiate will take some work
    But not impossible.

    Kind of stuck on the wheels right now. I pulled out “Lester Ray” as inspiration. This was a entry from a few years back

    She already has nice lines. I think you have a perfect candidate, especially with the bobbed fenders and mag-style chain wheel..

    This 24” wheel came off a girls bike found in the Trash. Unlaced. Painted black. Leopard wrap.
    Relaced. Mounted a knobby.
    I painted the wheel black before the leopard skin to make nicks less noticeable as time goes by.
    I will work on the front wheel this weekend Which is a 48 spoke I think. Off a OC Stingray chopper also found in the trash.

    Sweet rim mod! Something tells me this is not going to be any 'pussycat' of a girl's bike build!

Added a little extra leopard skin on the hub.
    Front wheel is a 48 spoke 24”.
    Same deal. Unlaced. Paint black.
    Wrap with Duct tape. Cleared over the seams. Relaced. The wheels match well with this OG solo polo. Next up big changes for chainguard and forks.

    Stellar work as usual. Is this an LSU...leopard, tribute bike? :21: Just kidding. Looks like your Tigers are roaring today already.

    And made a new decal in black. Similar plans for the forks.
