$7 from Thrift Town!!!!!
Custom sparkly silver paint job for the frame and fork.
I also painted some fenders, but they ended up not fitting.
upgrades include Nitto stem and handlebars, Avid v-brake levers, avid v-brake.
I overhauled the hubs, headset, and bottom bracket and it runs really smooth.
the bike fits him perfectly and he will be able to grow with it for the next few years.
The next bike will probably have either 20" wheels, or 26" wheels and a 13" frame.
