    It's actually a ''Butterfly Summer'' edition with special kevlar lined handgrips and titanium turbo tape.
    I had a set of platinum racing tassles but some black suit guy showed up last night and confiscated both sides. He tried to mutilate my dog but once he got a good look at her he decided it was a waste of time.

    I've used the handle bars on that type of kids bike for extending the height of handle bars on a slightly bigger BMX kids bike. I just welded one on top of the others and had 4 hand grips, 2 lower and 2 upper.

    As for tires I found useful from the same kiddie bike for beefed up brackets to hold them to my off roading motor bike that has a dual purpose to eventually make it to Burning Man in the dressed up form as a California Sheepshead Fish. Its gonna look for krill in the 50,000 year old dry lake bed at 8000ft.

    Be different!

    So. I had a visit from my local speed merchant this morning so there were some small changes made...
    Got a Big(fake)Block motor on a special Stihl bottom.

    Had to stretch things out to try and keep the front end on the road.
    The jackshaft gearing is a bit high....
