I guess this goes in here, feel free to move it mods if there is a better spot for it.
A few weeks ago, Aidan (my son) found his old bike. He hadn't ridden one in 2 years and so it was a tad small for him. However he was having a great time learning to ride it, and I had told him I would try to get him a new one for grading day. Unfortunately, with my financial situation right now I can't afford the bike he really wants.
So yesterday we went to a few garage sales, and lo and behold, there was a bike for $2.00. A steal as it was. But it fit him perfectly, there was just one problem in his eyes.......it was purple with pink spatters. I convinced him it was something I could re-paint and that no one would know it had been purple. I told him he could even pick the colour. So he agreed and we went to pay for it and the guy said Aidan could have it, no charge
2 cans of spray paint and half a roll of masking tape later and here is Aidan's new bike:
