This project has been coming along pretty well. It’s a bit more work than I thought it would be. That’s usually the case when building something!
This is a toy bicycle made of solid steal. I’ve been thinking about toys in general lately. Kids cry for them and fight over them. They are so important to us as children! I think toys are a child’s tool to stimulate his or her imagination. I played with legos and batman action figures as a kid. Everything was left to the imagination.
I wanted to build a lowrider bike because I had a thing for lowriders when I was really young. I was passionate about model cars at the age of 14. I customized every car to create a lowriders. The gold and chrome, and all the bright colors were so appealing to me. I still think that there is so much character and attitude in them.
