That is going to be great - good work!

Check out this one:

The frame is a similar design to a Trimble - you should sticker it up like one!

Bmx wheels and forks are a popular mod.

Right well they are indeed 20"x 1 3/8" wheels so my plan for a nice set on continental explorer tyres went out the window. Keeping in mind the £25 max spend on this bike I've decided to go for these bad boys.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261124654216? ... 1497.l2649

With any luck the colour will go nicely with the brown frame. A further £4.38 on two sets of replacement brake blocs means I'm up too £19.17 overall so a maximum of £5.83 left to spend. :lol:

Next problem is the pedals or lack of, the drive side pedal fell of it's axle when I tried to cycle around the block, anyone know what thread they will be?
