Updates / 2 newbies

Ok, found this green one last night spent 10 min to fix it up for the neighbors kid so he can stop wrecking sparkle princess.




It's already broke.

Sparkle princess:



And one I picked up about 30 min ago. 10 bucks, been sitting for atleast a year with the 2nd owner. Pumped up the tires and rode it home.


A ton of updates to come on that one

I think with a bit of oxalic acid that bike could turn out quite well.

The purple bike came out quite nice. It looks MUCH better without all the stickers .

I believe the purple one is a "Bratz" bike.
EDIT: yes. http://www.mgae.com/2005_product_pag...SportzBike.asp

Here some I got of it today, also got the chain guard back on and looking good.







Still have a lot of close up detail work, but it looks decent going down the road for now.

That's an old seat belt comfort thing, hides the Bratz logo and well that's about it. I thought I may get a non "lose the so and so", but I can't please anyone!!
