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.

Good, now I know what to do with my Samsung TV stand.

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

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
