    well lately ive been hitting garage sales to look for some deals on toys for x-mas to save some money.

    any way i got a silver bike at one for $3 for my youngest. a project bike to mess with. ended up having to get sproket bearings from a junk bike for it at they were bad. but fixed it for nothing. a few hrs later i found the lady threw out two more of them that didnt sell by road. picked up a pink and purple one free. took the white tires and seat off pink one and the purple pedals and grips to put on silver bike along with training wheels and painted forks and bars.

    then the real deal. the little one was a purple girls bike. some krylon camo and clear coat and now the butterfly bike is a camo hunter. even put a deer fabric on seat. had some chrome training wheels from oldest boys when he was little. added them too.:wink:

    not bad for $3
