Default Super small Wicked!

Here is a Wicked in size 10" (!), so it is even smaller than the Yo Betty! I found it on eBay and had it resprayed in fire engine red. The matching Judy even has a matching crown. The idea is to make it into a 1x8 speed kids bike for my nephew. Lucky kid, eh? All the parts are here, so I can start building today!

I'm a bit envious, would love to build a x-tra small Chance up for my Daughter.

The frame and color look great!

The serial number is a bit odd: it reads "3X3". I might have missed a digit though. Here is the progress after an afternoon of elbow grease. :-)

Default xs wicked

neat little bike. I have a 14" Wicked and I always thought that was the smallest size made. My wife has a 10" Yo Betty and one of our daughters used to ride a 12" until she outgrew it.
The serial number sounds like it could be a custom?

Great looking bike. Interesting that it is a Wicked with a monostay rear triangle. My thought is that it would be an XS Buckshaver. But in looking at the toptube it is quite a bit different than the one I have.

That's cool. Was the frame suspension corrected?

Don't believe the one I found for my son was suspension corrected but the Mag 21 knobs hit the downtube. Only so much you can do with such a small frame I guess.

OK, so this puppy is for sale. It never was used and the kid has outgrown it by now. Your chance to get something really awesome and collectible!
