My first trike ki/build. I have a few things yet to do to finish. The decal sheet gives you six options from Milk through to Soda, I chose Ice Cream/Ice Lolly. Plus I've added Some Ice Cream nail art decals to the rear. I've also painted some of the chrome parts with Acrylic Clear Red to give an anodised look. Yes the steering works 'carefully'!

Nice work Pat! I like the creamsickle color and the nice touch on the wheels and valve covers. This reminds me that I built one years ago. I think its buried in a box somewhere.

I am working on my first tike.  Did you just spray the clear red over the chrome parts?  I really like the look!

Thanks David. It would still be good to see years although built some years ago. These are the first ones to be imported here to the UK along with the Roller.

Hi James, no I used the acrylic clear red that is used for rear lights, just carefully brushed it on. Two light coats letting each coat to dry overnight.
