Nemesis Project X Disney Bloc-28 !

I am very proud to post these photos of the one off 24" bmx cruiser we build with the folks over at Disney Bloc-28
With the official launch in downtown L.A. on Nov-10 I have been given special permission by Disney to post these photos early here on our blog .
The bike itself was styled after Mickey's very own colorways , this interpretation of what Mickey's bicycle would be came out looking amazing! Highlights of this build include laser cut Mickey "cross gloves" patterns for the seat and chainstay spreaders and custom one off Disney Bloc-28 Pivotal seat. Parts spec is a mix of classic parts meets new school BMX highlights of this parts list include the last set of NOS gumwall 24" Tioga comp 3's left on the planet earth ( yea try to find a set )
Skyway Tuff wheels , custom powdercoated Macneil BMX Conjoined cranks and KAPPA Sumo bars, , DUO Grips, FLY bikes brakes and headset , Animal Pivotal post and Profile seatclamp and Spanish BB spacer kit .
Big Thanks go out to everyone involved with this bike , LES at Disney Bloc-28 first off for making this all possible ! Darcy over at Macneil BMX for the help with the cranks and for creating the Pivital technology ! Everyone at Skyway recreation for help with the wheels , Steve and the crew at MASS brothers powdercoating you guys are the best hands down !
Thank you

A Day with Les at Disney !

I had to drive down to L.A. to put the finishing touches on the Disney Bloc-28 bike last week .
Can't say too much about the bike now , sure a pic would be nice but were not showing off the complete bike just yet .
A few of the finer details have already been leeked here on my blog so I'm keeping the bike under wraps untill the official Bloc-28 launch .. Sorry kids
Here are some photos from Disney that might hold you over for now .
Mickey sketch I saw wile walking through one of the halls, there new toys and cool art all over the offices, it was hard not to take a billion pic's . I was there doing work after all .

They had a life sized Mike from Monster's Inc. in the Disney offices , freeking cool!

Les took me to lunch at Kabuki sushi in Northridge , it was amazing thank you for Lunch Les !

The seared Tuna was one of not the best piece of sushi I have ever had !

After lunch we came back to the Disney Bloc-28 offices and had some fun rideing the bloc-28 x Nemesis Project bike around the halls . We took more pic's but this is all your getting until the official launch on Nov-10

I also saw this driving down the 101 on my way home , Ford GT-40 Replica a very good replica at that !
