    Pics and a story

    I guess this best fits in Alt Bike Culture???...Sorry I don't really know where else it should be..

    Anyway, this is my friends last resort bike. Has a Specilized Mt Bike...flat tire, no money. Has a Haro BMX...broken chain, no way of fixing, no money. Sooo what do you do? Take your sisters bike of course!

    Before:

    I think my favorite part about this bike renovation has to be that the saddle was raised about 2 inches. Like it's really going to make much difference, haha.

    Hey, wasn't me with the brilliant ideas. He tells me what to do, I say ok you're an idiot but ok. (he can't do anything to bikes if his life depended on it, he can barely ride one) He gave the bike to me a few days ago. I did a whole bunch of crap to it including a fake lisence plate with my name on it and an air ride seat!

    laugh if you want but with some tweaking a magna like that can be quite the performance bike. extra points for barbie pink, too!

    just put a two or three tooth smaller sprocket on the back for a little extra speed and performance.

    I would have kept the funky George Clinton ornamentation, tho (although I can understand a 14 y.o. boy not wanting too do so....)

    I don't think your average 14 year old knows who George Clinton is. True men do, and they don't kill coyotes either.

    Never thought I'd have an excuse for posting a George Clinton photo:
