I'm actually liking the Specialized.

And I'll post this just because I can:

Nice. I bet those are fun to drive on dirt roads and pretend you're in a rally race. Of course I do that in my Oldsmobile, but it's front wheel drive and the suspension is pretty worn out, so it's not really the same. At least it rides high enough not to bottom out too much.

By the way I think it looks pretty sweet, nice color scheme. I wonder if you could get chrome nuts for the back wheel, that might look cool too.

Here's my two rattletraps as they look now:


I'm just letting the rust do its thing on the specialized's frame, I kind of like it. I started to paint the fork but gave up and let the white paint drip all over it and look crappy. The peugeot (road bike) needs some lovin', in that picture I had started to wrap the bar on the right side but couldn't get the original bar end off so put it on hold - I just duct taped the end of the tape on after that.
No, I could just do that but I won't.

You could? So you have an outfit like that just lying around?

Could but won't is better than can't and won't.

I mean, I'm sure the bike would feel sexy being all dressed up in a leather bra and panties. You might have to get creative to find a place on the bike to put them on though.

I don't have one but I'm sure it isn't that hard to go out and buy one. I could get one of those taliored to fit the handlebars and get something to go around the cranks.

well... I GUESS it wouldn't be the end of the world if you wore the lingerie instead of putting it on the bike. You have my permission to do that, since I'm sure that was the only thing stopping you, right?

Hey, I'm old and this is my BMX

I'm in my 40s and this is my favorite toy. Sadly, I can't do all the crazy **** that you kids do. But, hey at least it keeps me fit. I'm not falling to pieces like everyone I know that's in their 40s!

Oh yeah, another racer. Do you race or did you just get the bike to ride around on?

to ride around on. im 24 so im guessing im a bit too old for racing. i also know nothing about it. i live in so cal and dont know any racers either. i got this bike because it was lightweight and i seriously couldnt picture myself doing crazy grinds and flatland tricks. just hopping and wheelies,.

24 is not old for racing at all. There are guys over 45+ racing. And SoCal is racing country. There ABA tracks out the a** there. I wish I was there sometimes. Try it!

I like how the rims say "Spank." And how many more bikes do you have WTP?

Nice bike wethepeople! I used to have a old Decade that was the same color. Is that custom or a complete? And is that an e13 chainwheel setup?
