Specialized Hemi Mini Restored to a Sinister Mini

This Mini looked liked it had been dropped off the top of a tall building and left for dead when I purchased it. Seeing this mini race bike in such poor condition , I figured I'd restore it for some little dude to race again. Upon reassembly I noticed it took on a sinister look as it arose from the dead. (Ever see the movie Christine?) After sending some preliminary shoots to a friend and museum member, I received what must be one of the best compliments of all time. 

" What the heck. You have some spray new in a can or something. I want a few cans of that. Holly smokes!!!!!!!!!!TRANSFORMATION!!!!!!!!!! "     Thanks Mike . . .

I decided to shoot this mini track demon missing some parts to preserve the cool I saw originally after reassembly. The little guy platform pedals that came stock on these are so big they conceal the stubby liitle 140mm crank arms, and I'm still trying to get use to the saddle. It's too red and brings to much focus to the seat. A black Uni with gold inserts would be more fitting.
