Painters did a nice thing at work today. Photo

Today our painters presented a repainted bike to the young man who sweeps the shop everyday. This guys life are his three bikes. The other two are super nice ones that his parents bought him and he is not allowed to mess with them. This one was his first "commute bike" and he loved it. He had painted it five or six times putting the name of the shop on it and stuff like that. He painted the rims and all once.

The guys in the shop took it apart and stripped it all down and custom painted it for him. Not telling him what it would look like or anything so it was all a surprise.

He is walking on cloud nine after seeing it.

Brian

"Trick my Bike"?? hmmm, idea for new TV show maybe??

Along with being a good person yourself, it looks like you have surrounded yourself with the same.

Cool post and great way to start the weekend - feeling good.

custom bicycles are very popular,not a bad idea watchit....I had a chopper with a sissy bar when I was a younger version of myself.I found out about riding wheelies and the importantance of secure forks at an earliy age..a pair of forks digs into blacktop with a very sudden stop....we used to cut a pair of forks off another bike and pound them over another set to lengthen them and they came loose once and a while....LOL ..ouch... but I've seen some chromed out customs that really put my old stuff to shame ...kinda like with cars these days... way to go Brian.....again.....

It's an off brand, I don't know what it is, probably about a 2000 model.

Yeah, that was me, and I wouldn't do that on someone else's bike. Not unless it was rented. I wheelied up and down Hermosa beach one weekend a few years ago on a rented cruiser. Get this, with my boss. He was so blown away and still talks about it.

Oh my God, when he left the shop that night he had a smile a mile wide as he rode off. I was told that he literally kissed the bike.

Maybe its a Huffy,they made a similar one to that around 2000, Frame looks alot like my 59 Western Flyer Galaxy Flyer,but the frame on my 83 Murray is virtually identical except its scaled down to a 20 inch
