I like to make my bikes less desirable with various customisations, but this may well be slightly over the top.

I'm assuming you do that to discourage theft?
Aren't you worried that some artsy types may think it's paintjob from the likes of Andy Warhol or Jackson Pollock? :lol:

note # to those whom are older and wise ....

race bikes where bought ...back in the day in factory format ie

standard colours ,items ,etcetc...so team bikes where styled to the rider therefore zero where at factory set ...in fact those even in mongoose with all blue race colours where again different to format ...even plates where not 12345 ..rather 101,254,1,68...

theft plus low end parts mixing made ...feral bikes..

so in all ...this bike may be just a reflection of his like only..

the biggest fail in old school bmx is that the wisest even here have forgotton that time when building ....rather build to zzzzzzz factory set..blue/chrome 7x zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
