Hi all,

yesterday I had two full hours with nothing to do, so I decided to rebuild my 8838 Shock Cycle. While building it, thought, I decided not to use the eye-catching yellow parts, and to make it a bit more realistic and town oriented. So I ended up with this MOD:

Image links to gallery (when public).

As you can see, I did not only change the color scheme, but I also added some details.

Comments and CC are welcome :classic:

Thanks, BerndDasBrot, my only commenter :laugh:

I didn't keep the number '7' 'cause it is more sporty, and it didn't seem to fit with the urban style of this MOD :wink:

okay. one thing I'd also like to point (after I saw the whole gallery): do you want to change the Technic Axle 2L with those two half bushes
(I don't know how to call it right now- I mean the part where you put your hands on...  :tongue: )
into a half pin?

i dunno... erm- just watching.

I think get what you men. Yes, a half pin would make it look more smooth.

On the other hand, I may try and see if I can manage to add the brakes' levers there.

A V.2 may be on the way, but it will certainly not be before the second hald of august (I'm going away for a couple of weeks now) :wink: .
