Pimp my Ride: Tim Lu Max

Tim Lu Max has been slowly pimping his Boda Boda. Here’s two in-progress pictures of the bike with a custom Soft Spot, a custom Bread Basket liner made to match the standard Baguette. Can you spot the components he powder coated to match?

He’s also swapped the handlebars for swept-back cruiser bars, platform pedals, and added a water bottle from S’well. Coming up next are new grips, fenders and lights.

Looking good, Tim!
