1980 Mini Sting resto

i started to make some progress and thought i'd post some pics. it's getting blue ano race inc bars, blue araya / sunshine 1-1/8 sew-ups and polished Team cranks with a blue chainring. i'll update pics as parts arrive and as i finish polishing.

Re: 1980 Mini Sting resto

thx again! i hope my hoops show up soon. the yellow wheels may be a bit much but it's what i had to work with. i think i'm gonna give it to my 3yo niece when it's done and get her involved in BMX. she's a 2 wheel fanatic already. every time she hears a motorcycle she asks if it's me coming over lol . when she's at my house she won't leave my bikes alone either.
