2005 Specialized Hemi Mini

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.

Re: 2005 Specialized Hemi Mini

Sweet build. I love the background scenary you took the pics in as well.  This is a winnner for sure.  So have you decided to keep it now that you have seen how it turned out.  I have found that working on bikes makes you bond more to them. 

p.s.  You have my favorite Bible verse on the end of your post!

Re: 2005 Specialized Hemi Mini

Thanks Taylor... My favortie verse as well.  I won't be keeping this one.  My idea from the start was to build it so some little guy could race it.  I'm glad you dig it .

God bless

Re: 2005 Specialized Hemi Mini

lol I knew you'd love that big Indian Baz... " You now called, him who rides small aluminum horse. ..  How..."  lol


Thanks mann,  I'm stoked with the pics. There are many.  80 down to 8 roll  Unfortunately, like the SX they uploaded a little funky.... Bummer  hmm   The orignals are large and super clear. Let me know if you want some.  I really love the contrast with the red Chaparral.  "How many angles can you count in pic number one"  big_smile
