    Hi everyone. Ray here, I'm 15 and love my choppers and lowrider bikes. Love the look of this site. As there are not many new members yet I thought you might like to have a look at my lowrider bikes. Its like a chopper afterall.

    I'm sure you will agree being 15 means that money is a bit of an issue so after receiving my Bratz lowrider for 37 quid on ebay a few days ago, I quickly set about making it my own! The plans are:

    *Green banana seat with tall chrome sissy bar

    *Black paint with green pin-stripes

    *Black pedals and green grips

    *General tidy up with the chrome and whitewalls

    Then after a few changes to get the idea of what will look like:

    I then began to strip it down for painting.

    I used T-cut scratch remover to clean up the chrome and bathroom cleaner on the whitealls, it worked really well!

    I wanted the clips going to the back brake removed as it would spoil the look of the pin-striping. I will let the pics do the talking ;D

    Gave them a quick skim of filler and gave it a wet and dry.

    Next up was the pin-striping! I decided to go for white and green as one color would look to solid.

    Then hit the whole bike with satin-black and clear lacquer.

    This is it all put together and I was quite happy with the result! I am keeping on the lookout for some kool accessories and I could do with some green pedals and grips! If anyone has any bits going cheap, give me a PM.

    Since then, I have been building it up with some cool bits to make it stand out from the crowed. Not everyone's taste I know but I like getting noticed!
    I added:
    - Chrome mirror
    - J2O bottle on sissybar
    - Iron cross on fender
    - Dice
    - Yellow front light, rear sissybar light
    - Green lights under fenders, I will get some night pics soon 8-)

    In fact, I enjoyed building it so much, I did it again with another bratz bike.

    I have sold the red one now and I'm hoping to give the black bike a coat of green flake. Anyway, what do you guys reckon?

    Thanks mate. I'd like a real chopper but they are so expensive. If I can find one cheap and in need of a restoration I will jump at it. No work is too hard if its on a bike is it? I really enjoyed building these 2 and had them both painted in a few hours. Came out quite well.

    Mk 3s are cheap enough for a red one, like to see what you could do with it..... and I thought brats were only good for mixtie parts..
