Sort of disappointed in the bar color... waited a month for slow boat Chinese $1 shipping.

Colours are hard to match up, even black is. You could always get a seatpost and other bits to match the bars!? wouldnt look out of place then.

Looks like something from “The History Man” school of bike creativity!

Ps. Did anyone respond regarding the sticker/artwork question?

You could try Gil_m on this forum, he we will work with supplied artwork or amend existing or re-trace web downloads etc. Very flexible.

Most likely it’ll get crazier, the rear hub is red... so it’ll need some more red somewhere. Thanks for the sticker tip

The camera just can’t capture how weirdly bright this bike is... in the full sun it looks like a pachinko parlor

Size reference, he’s average height for 10yrs. Tiny bike, totally rad & knarly

The seat post size is a mystery on this bike... 25.4mm is way loose & 26.8mm only fits the tip in... I put a small cardboard shim in the 25.4mm and it works for holding it. What size would be between 25.4 & 26.8?

Edit... it is a Tange oval tube rounded at top where the seat post enters

Tiny update, this paint is almost impervious to stripping.

Basic plans on paint will be silver metallic base with Roth mustard gas’s flake topped with re-interpretation of original graphics
