I,remeber MBI ran a story in the mid 90`s about an english frame builder called Louis ????????? who built a custom frame for his daughter.All I, can remember about the spec is that it had one off Middleburn RS2`s and the frame was mango or orange.
Sorry to be so vague.
On Elmo Jr`s first bike I,replaced the handlebars with Easton EA50`s cut down to 15" and fitted XT 8 speed servo wave brake levers so that his small fingers could actually workthe brakes.
Off course him being 4 years old meant that the XT kit got trashed (gear indicators broken off).If anyone wants them they can have them,PM me with details.

That is feckin sweet, but I think it was built more for the dads enjoyment than the kids :D

Elmo - was it Louis Colella (sp?), started off by making a full sus frame for himself and ended uo sponsoring a couple of high profile racers (Emma Guy?).
Anyone remember one of the last frames he produced which was a mad DH frame that looked like a Motorbike frame?
