My niece out grew her bike and her little brother out grew his. No reason to buy a new one for him when we can repurpose and make it cool! This was a really fun project I did with my wife. Built a paint booth, disassembled, sanded, cleaned, prepped for paint, repainted and reassembled. We've done one together before when we refurbished and old 60's Schwinn Tandem.

Real question is did it gain or loose weight with the new paint??...lol

Looks good!! I bought my boy a cheap mongoose only because it was orange just like my 29'r, that way we match when go ride around the block
