Hahahahah got ya. Well this was a fun project that started with a early 80's radio flyer. I had some carbon black paint left over after color matching some interior parts and decided to build this for my son's 2nd birthday. I know the stitching and the hand written tri could be better but it has been a while since I have done any upholstery work. Hope you guys like it as my son loves it (maybe not as much as I do though!) and will grow up an M lover! Tried to keep a little old school and leave a little white wall on the front rim for effect. On the fence right now if should have just painted the whole thing but still love it. Thanks for letting me share.

Ha ha, very cool! Better watch it, someone around here is going to start recommending you slap on a supercharger kit!

Great suggestions on the drop and supercharger! Don't think he will need a supercharger as my son is already twin turbo charged with a 1000 shot NOS! "Mia" can't even catch him. I'll let you guys know when he hits the high speed limiter on this thing. Thanks for all the love...as a bonus my wife has een offered to buy my next part for the effort I put into his first bike. Thanks again guys!

good to see some of us had a lot of time this winter.
You would think however this project was during my busiest time this winter as I also did a gc coilover install, custom cai, and averaged 80 Hr weeks at work. I guess I don't like sleep much or just get bored when the kids go to bed.
