I stopped at a garage sale today and got the following for FIVE DOLLARS...<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FCharm-Co-Rocking-Motorcycle%2Fdp%2FB0002A5C5Q%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%2F002-7033694-0463238%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dtoys-and-games%26qid%3D1177097998%26sr%3D1-2" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Charm-Co-Rocki...7097998&sr=1-2</a><br><br><br>
The screws need to be tightened, and a few decorative caps are missing...and its a tiny bit scratched up but otherwise it's great!! I have a daughter and while Im all for boy and girl toys, Im thinking about stripping it and painting it to be more girlie...any ideas on paint colors???

Wow that was a steal! I'm not a fan of motorcycles at all, but it looks like a very well made rocker.<br><br>
I'd be careful about using any chemical paint strippers, but the color choices are entirely up to you.

I LOVE the colors in the amazon photo. I'd stain in Dark with Light accents and then, add a feminine touch: Her name in script on the front oval piece or shooting stars or a blowing cloud.

katt that is a cute idea! I would just leave it as is, but it has some scratches and it needs something done to it.

I always like Blue and Yellow as a color combo, you could go dark and rich and have it reminicent of sun/moon/stars type feel... or citrus'y': orange and green, or Your favoriate sports team, or different shades of the same color.
