My Kids help make bike parts

BD Deck in Backyard close upThis is my favorite bike part I have been a part of making (my three kids helped with the paint and sanding). It has turned out so much better than I expected. I am just so proud and excited by the result. It is not complete or on the bike yet but it is turning out so well I had to show you all. My kids are young all under 6 years. The bike is being built for them, to show and prove to them that a car is not the only form of regular transport. Lead by example is what I am working on here. They will hopefully have a sence of ownership and pride in the bike because they have been an integral part making the bike.

BD Deck in Backyard with SunThis photo is after three coats of clear coat. I am not sure how many coats it will get. The more coats the deeper and richer the kids painting under it becomes. I have a wonderful outdoor spray booth. My backyard, it is amazing just how lucky I am to live in such a wonderful place. I just head out my backdoor for beautiful MTB and trail runs.

The part is made from recycled double A grade hoop pine plywood. Feels wonderful to breath new life in to such amazing timber. As they say reuse, repurpose or recycle, I think this is a great example of that.
