A custom build for my 14 year old son

We started out with a Raleigh Super Gran Prix and sent the frame and fork out for a candy lime powdercoat job. He wanted something that would really pop, so we choose Origin 8 orange flip-flop wheels with black spokes and mounted fixation orange tires. Drive train utilized a 46 tooth Sugino Messeger crank links to a 16 tooth free wheel via a Pintle (half link) chain. Stopping power is provided by the original Weinmann centerpulls with upgraded Kool Stop Supra 2 pads actuated with Soma brake levers and topped everything off with a Brooks B17 Special saddle and Brooks perferated leather bar wrap.
