Unfortunately, I had to give up my SAAB (Saabi) at the end of August, which does not stop me from raving about him and reading all the news about SAAB.
Since my little nephew always associated my coming with a blue Saab, I had to come up with something to not disappoint him next time. In addition, his birthday was just around the corner, so what to do ??? He wished for a blue bike and since there was a SAAB bike in the SAAB Expression Shop some years ago I came up with an idea. How about a SAAB wheel ???
A model that matches his expectations and my needs (children's bikes should be really child-friendly) was found relatively quickly:
However, I did not like the design at all, after all, my nephew should connect the bike with Saab and me ...
With the kind support of Kunert Automobile AG in Bonn, who have been waiting for my SAABI all the time, I have changed the look of the bike a bit. Because of Kunert I received the much sought-after stickers SAAB Parts AB autumn action. In addition, I bought at Skandix.de a few more stickers and then began to change the design.
Well, and what has become of it can be seen in the following pictures ... My little nephew is certainly thrilled and now the proud owner of a "blue Saab".
The original sticker I have completely removed and then freed the frame of all adhesive residues. Subsequently, the "SAAB - More than a car" stickers were neatly cut into 2 parts. A piece of blue adhesive film has now been glued to the top tube as a base for the SAAB logo.
Here again a detail picture, on which one also sees, that the resulting new lettering is again protected with a transparent foil. The lettering "More than a car" came on the down tube. Of course also once again protected by transparent film.
Instead of a manufacturer's logo now adorned a moose on Sweden flag the head tube.
The SAAB logo with griffin in XXL is emblazoned on the seat tube.
The bell was also decorated with the SAAB logo.
The crank has been redesigned as a reminiscence of the SAAB Turbo display. Certainly it is not a true SAAB, but a unique !!! To the delight of my nephew and of course me too.
And however the SAAB story will end, this SAAB wheel is honored.
