Crafts :: Extreme Bike Makeover

Add comments

Well, I suppose I’m exaggerating a little bit, but I’ve wanted to makeover my bike for quite a while and I’m really excited about it! The makeover is far from extreme right now, but I’ve got some  other projects in mind, such as some DIY roll up paniers (I deeply envy these!) and maybe a polka dotted helmet like that one from ohjoy.
I’ll let you know if I ever find the time to do these… I’ve got a huge list of craft projects that I rarely get the chance to even start. Oh well, at least I’ve got the ideas!

So there goes my bike makeover:

First, I removed all the self-adhesive labels exept that triangular one that I like :P
(it’s the only one that has nothing written on it).

Then, I searched for figures that mean something to me and drew them over in Autocad. I saved the design on PDF format so that it’s all vector and then printed it on a self-adhesive vinyl sheet. I cut it up and put it on my bike, smoothing out the air bubbles!
