How about your non car "Hot rods"?

I have done a lot of bikes and the like and thought just came across a few photos.

This pedal car I did for my nephew (he is now building a chopped and channeled 40 Ford pickup Rat rod)

It was black cherry candy.


This is a pedal car I did for my son. It was painted at a House of Kolor seminar back in 1985ish, maybe by John Kosmoski himself? I had all the "suspension" chromed.



Here is a bike that I did for my ex-wife. It's a late 50's Schwinn this thing was so feminine it probably had PMS. This is it at the Grand National Oakland Roadster show around 1988.



I love doing those projects, they usually get done in a reasonable period of time.

Brian

You know why they called it "PMS"? "Psychotic Axe Murderer" was already taken.

Love the non-car work.

I turned a little coin-op "ride" ( you know the ones that sit outside Kmart and the kid gets a bouncy ride for a quarter) into one.

It was a Model T speedster, which, as it turned out from measuring, was EXACTLY half scale, into a "drive-it" for my son when he was about 8.

A 3 1/2 hp Briggs fit under the hood with about a half inch to spare and the 10 inch wheels off junked sidewalk rider bikes worked well for looks.

Sadly, I never did "finish" it - as in: no paint, no upholstery, etc - certainly no-where near the excellent job you have done, Brian, but he enjoyed it for a year until he got too big to fit into it.

Oh that is too cool! Yeah once I did a "coin machine"........I restored an old condom machine. LOLOLOL No kidding, chromed a bunch of pieces, sand blasted and painted it. I will never forget how bad I felt when I forgot it was there and my girlfriends mom came by and used the bathroom! She is now my mother-in-law.
