    Pretty baskets?

    OK, so I'm in the midst of building a super pretty bike for my daughter's 13th birthday. she's making the aesthetic and rider interface choices. It's built around a '78 trek 310 frame which I had powder coated in blue stardust (a crazy metallic color-shifting color) with pink deep V rims, Berthoud SS fenders, 8-speed/triple drive train, and upright three-speed style or M bars. Accent colors will all be pink. It'll probably get a simple rack on back, and a basket up front. I'm just wondering what some of the more unusual basket options might be, as the classic wicker basket doesn't appeal to her, and the plain wire basket seems a bit incongruous with the flashy aesthetics of this bike.

    I think I have a white plastic whicker basket with pink flowers on it
