OK, here we go.
The victim is a Micargi Rover GT-R. I picked this bike because I like the shape of the frame, the price, the heavy tubes and motorcycle-like fork and black wheels and spokes. I wish the top tube was thicker like the Micargi Retro I have, but there's always trade-offs.
First thing I did was cut the ends off the high rise handlebars and bent them open to 22". I think they were about 18" before, between the turn-outs. The stickers came off the bike real easy - just got my fingernail under a corner and peeled them off. They didn't leave any residue. The badge on the head tube peeled off easy, too, but left some foam bits which I wiped off with a little naptha.
Tried on the handlebars and put some white rubber on it.
Here's the shop.
