Hey NEV,,,, aye, i seen them. Ta for looking though.

I also found a website where you can buy every single part for these wee bikes that you want.

I'm thinkin of buying a new exhaust and new plastic's,,,,,, mainly because the plastic's are cheeper to buy than a tin of paint to spray my own ones, but even if i do ill still be giving them the chop to the way i want them.

I know what ya mean NEV

I'm not actually doing it up for my wee one,,,,, i just deceided i would do it up for the craic,,, dont know why,,,,just didnt want to see it being thrown away.

Whatever i do with it, or whoever gets it im sure all my hard work will be ruined prity quickly by some youngfella going nuts and then dropping it on the street at the front door. But anyway not to worry,,,, while i have it,,it will look good and thats all that matters to me.
