If they're Swedish kids... minutes... Swedish adults... an hour... eberyone else... a longass time! (same goes for Ikea stuff!)

I wish they'd sell that Lego kit... I'd spend some quality time thumbing through the instructions wondering why I have extra pieces!

something doesn't seem right with the seam in the floor, and notice how the leg shield looks almost like a Bajaj. I'd stay away from this one.

When I look at that image of the lego bike I keep waiting for my screen to resolute it.

Weird

Looking at it again, I kinda like the painted rings around the headset near each handle... wrong colors, but could be cool on real bike... hmmmm... good ideas from an unexpected source! strange things are afoot at the Circle K!

Lego fun fact! Lego started as wooden blocks in 1932 in Denmark (not Sweden... my bad! ) and lego... the word comes from some Danish expression (sorry too lazy to go back and look... you do it!) meaning Play Well!

Next up.... History of the Zipper!

I like the paint job. Especially the detail on the headset.

You know what I mean. Like when you have a shitty laptop like mine and an image takes a second for resolution to work, to focus or whatever a screen does when its loading a pic.

Not a bodge---no yellow boots on the centerstand. Must be a race bike---no centerstand at all.

It is indeed really cool. I have seen a lot of complicated Lego stuff but the curved structure of the legshield is no small feat to build.
I should use it as my avatar.

The Danes put 'em on the other side with left hand curly exhausts. the right cowl usually has a glove box filled with cookies.

I think they do that to give the impression it's delicate, and that the bricks aren't all glued together!

Like they are!

A friend found the answer...

He is proudest of the life-size model of a 1950s Vespa scooter, parked in a corner of the room. Built with tan-coloured bricks and boasting red-and-yellow racing stripes, it took a year to plan and another four months to build. '
