    bought a wreck gar junker on ebay

    searched the net in order to find the front wheel and maybe tyres but nada!!

    so i decided to make some

    spotted at my local toy store those maisto "super streetbike" die cast 1:18( those die casts were manufactured at 2003 ,why would they still have them- i dont know ) , and decided that the wheels r suitable for wreck gar .


    the bike wasnt so cheap 8 euros ...:2c: 

    the main idea was just to make the wheels but then inspiration struck and i decided to switch and add some of the chrome plastic parts to wreck gar .

    so i have changed some parts:
    brake and gas handles
    made a new headlight +new cooling radiator
    replaced the exhaust and added another one on the other side
    made a fuel tank opening and transfered the stickers from the kit to wreck gar
    new license plate and back side lights-i'll need to print a license plate to fit it
    new side lights-maybe i'll place some led's instead
    a kick stand

    modified the wheels of course
    the seat
    and added some partsforming parts for coolness :)  and extra chrome




    hope u like it

    Very well done! I think it's great to bring an old junker back to life like that.

    An upgrade that oddly enough fits this character, since he pretty much can have any sort of junk be part of his body. The fact it's high performance parts just means he's faster now:lol

    Those Maisto bikes are still all over the place around here too ranging from the 8.99 (US) i got mine for up to 14.00 each. I wish i'd kept them intact as they'd make new bodies for larger figures. I modded all mine into customs for 6" action figures.
