Thanks to this thread, I remembered to give a kid on a new stingray a bit of appreciation. It wasn't custom, but obviously the 10-11 y.o. kid has the right idea, and who's to say it might not someday get a new paint job or some creative bolt-on stuff? He saw my "rat rod" style fat whitewalled cruiser frame, too. Got to set a good example, maybe I'll go back to wearing my helmet.
There are still kids hacking on bikes, but there are so many cheap store bikes around, and kids have money these days...
