My granny got a bike on sale at walmart, and I really love it, but it's really girly. It has flower decals and is a pale purple color. I was wondering what I could do to customize it, for cheap. I have up to $100 from Christmas, but I want to do it for as cheap as possible. I'm not a very good spray painter, but I REALLY want a different color, and I want to do it like my favorite band, A.F.I. Thanks for all the help!
Take all the decals off. Have the wheels, chain, and handlebars taken off and remove the brakes... Then prime it with spray or brush-on primer, followed by a coat or two of the color you want. Finish it off with a weather resistant top coat, then put all the parts back on.
If you don't want to take off the hardware and wheels to spray paint, you could wrap duct tape around and around - it comes in cool colors and patterns now!
Thanks for the ideas! I can't take it apart though. We live in a small town, so there's nowhere I can take it, and I'm not that skilled.
