I have a real soft spot for pit bikes and the mini goose. It looks amazing.  Black and Chrome is so classy. I bet Caleb is as proud as punch tooling around on it.  I built my 10 year old daughter a Dayglo Pink '83 diamond back viper and she loves it.  Way cooler than any new school stuff:)

Thanks for all the comments guys.  I've really got a get a video of him riding it.  It's quite funny.  He just accelerates endlessly like he's on cloud 9.
