BMX'd my Lectric XP

Like many of you I grew up on a BMX. My fondest bike memories come when I was riding my BMX, dozens and hundreds of miles as a child. It turns out with a little imagination our Lectric XP is a good candidate for conversion...

My mods were numerous: Bars, head, stem, grips, shifter, bell, pegs and kickstand. Plus several hours installing it all and tidying up the wires.

Hope you like!

Like it, now if you could only have the bike 30lbs lighter...

Hey there,

Can you tell me what the manufacturer is and where you got the kids seat? I've found a few, but unsure they'll work.
Here you go.

Nice job. The legs are a great touch. Makes me miss my GT.

I was inspired by this BMX project and did something similar. I installed mine so that I could use the fold down bar and height adjust. I need to sit up straight due to back issues. I did not need to re-route any cables or purchase any special fork/stem, but did need to cut 2 inches off the insert post so I could drop the new bars all the way down to the lowest possible position so the cables could reach. New bars required additional rubber material to fit snug.

Glad I could inspire! Room to hang lights and accessories is what first drew me to BMX bars. But once fitted I decided to go the opposite route and minimize accessories.
