:D That is superb, what did you use to rebond the joints?

I used hot air gun only ( and gloves, sure).
At first I cut one pipe from main triangle of a frame (vertical), and then began to heat an aluminum joint. When it heated up enough ( I won't be able to tell exact temperature, it is necessary simply to try to turn from time to time a pipe) frame was rebounded.

can I buy it when your son has outgrown it?
that would possibly be abot the time when my one is big enough.

It's so early to talk about it...
It might be that I'll keep this bike for my son as part of his life, who knows.... Or as art-object...
