Nikki Martin, COO of Roy’s Toys Customs and a custom bike builder herself, was happy to work with her dad, Roy Martin, at their shop in Centennial, CO to customize a Strider bike for the 2019 Flying Piston Builders Breakfast. Nikki has been an invited builder at the Buffalo Chip’s Motorcycles As Art Exhibition and Sturgis is a must for her.
Nikki was excited to build this bike, as all three of her children started their excursions into two wheels on Striders! She’s a believer! Since then, they have all transitioned to motor-driven minibikes and small cc motorcycles. Nikki knows the importance of getting children on bikes, and the Strider balance bikes are the perfect first foray.
Roy and Nikki thought of this build as functional customization – they smoothed the frame and added the gorgeous paint job. The candy apple red frame is highlighted with gold candy paneling leading down the frame. The delicate silver striping outlines and highlights each panel, making for an eye-catching tiny custom bike any youngster would be proud to ride.
Like the other tiny Strider Customs, this one supports the All Kids Bike initiative that strives to make bike riding a part of kindergarten P.E. curriculum. The Flying Piston Benefit was delighted to have Roy and Nikki in the 2019 Class of Strider Custom Builders.
