Im waiting for someone to weld Gummi Bears to their frame. That would be different and innovating.

Hey, given your daughter's concerns, you could do it in a My Little Pony motif.

Is My Little Pony a thing in England? Is it a thing anywhere?

Alternate suggestion: Powerpuff Girls.

yes, my little pony is a thing here... I endured taking her to the cinema last year to watch it.
In the whole cinema there was about 50 mothers and little girls...and 1 bearded guy with a little girl. got some looks!! haha

doing the bike on my little pony theme!! now she would be over the moon with that!! Woul
She calls my 68 genny the Flamesy, and the 51 Pan survivor the Sparkly... as she said it looks like the bike has sparkles from unicorns...

haha

"Unwanted attention, and it won't be from the cops"

Of course not. It'll be from small girls, and those little thugs will pursue you everywhere. You'll never rest again.

I apologize. This thread has spun out into neverland.


Then again, the name Tinkebell has a nice ring. Oops, did it again.


Please post a pic of something manly so we can move on.

Do it traditional and it will look good now and still look good in 30 years. A good clean build with attention to detail is timeless.

Not real detailed but built in the late 60s with a stock frame and king/queen seat.
