would make a great pub-crawling bike (not too far to fall, in case one happens to fall off).

Cut the bars down. Fit some green ODI grips, then paint the tyres white and glue those white suck-on soap holders as tyre tread....oh....and ad a Crudguard.

Are those 12" wheels? You might be able to find different wheels with spokes from a pram someone threw away.

I always got nice new tyres for my kids little bikes from those. The seats wear fast, tyres are fine but people throw the away. With my kids (on the bikes) it was always the other way round. Rear brake plus skidding fun... :roll:

Purple to orange fade using this stuff could be funky.
