In the spirit of Eddie Van Halen’s famous ‘Frankenstrat’ guitar, I repainted and updated my older folding bicycle.  I’ve christened her ‘Foldenstein’.  She lived her young life as a bright pink standard 20” folding bike but I decided customize her a little.  I stripped her down to the frame, sanded her, sprayed on 3 coats of gloss white, masked off the stripes, laid down 6 coats of gloss red, and then hand painted the few gloss black stripes.  I bought some ducktail fenders to keep the roadwater off my back, slid on some new grips and removed the front brakes.  Now all I need is a world tour, a stint in rehab, lots of cigarettes, and some groupies!
