    *Hot Rodimus*

    Hi. I custom built this out of various spare parts and spraypaint I had lying around. The only new parts I bought were a set of tires, tubes and grips which set the total cost of the build at a whopping $25. it was fun to build and is a blast to ride even if I'm a tad too big for it. (okay, way too big)

    Thanks!! I took the pics in my little studio where I paint my silly pictures. What would have made this much cooler would have been if it were a Takara frame. in the 1970's & 80's Kuwahara co. manufactured Takara brand bikes for the world's greatest toymaker.

    worse than you thought. it's a Huffy. I have some GT parts on there and a Bulldog front brake though which isn't so bad.

    Oh noez!Not a Huffy! Still pretty slick! I'd paint up two dirt jumpers like Optimus and Ultra magnus (OR Megatron) And maybe a cruiser combiner. I would religiously follow your work :D
