Use Eastern's frame upgrade policy and get a Grim Reaper.

Frame Upgrade

Check with your local dealer before you call or email us!
That's right you can get this frame trade-in through your local shop. Support local dealers.

So you have an old Eastern frame that's getting pretty beat, right? Well trade that sucka in for a new Eastern frame of your choice. Your old frame can be beat up, broken or maybe you just don't like it anymore. All you have to do is ship us your old Eastern frame*(ANY EASTERN BMX FRAME, ANY CONDITION) to us, include your contact info(name, the frame that you want to upgrade to, address and telephone number) and we'll get in touch with you for payment and to make sure the frame of choice is in stock. Here's how much you pay(plus shipping) when you trade in any frame:
Dragon - $130 +shipping
Reaper or Harvester - $215 +shipping
Grim Reaper - $280 + shipping

That should give you a good head start.

I dont want to make it so its just random colours.. i want some thing with good colours instead of just a black n white bike like i got now.. im going to sell the eastern jane, cause a guy wants to buy it, and then just start building my own bike.. so i cant reallly do the eastern frame thingo.. good idea thou.

I've made up a nice custom for you. Its black and green. Nice color combo. You should really only do two colors, maybe three if you can get it to match right. All the parts that are green are colored. Everything else is black. Feel free to make changes. and also notice how all the green parts are profile, try to keep any colored parts the same company so the color matches. different shades of a color can sometimes look retarded.

Frame - Fly Luna
Forks - Odyssey Race Classic
Bars - Animal Sway
Stem - Profile Acoustic
Grips - Animal Edwins
Headset - Any Will Do
Cranks - Profiles
Pedals - Premium Thin, Odyssey PC's
Sprocket - Tree Lite Spline Drive
Rims - Animal LM Rims
Front Hub - Profile Mini
Rear Hub - Profile Mini Cassette
Tires - Animal GLH (front and back)
Seat - Kink Slim Pivitol
Seat Post - Animal Pivitol
Seat Post Clamp - Profile Slim Jim

I think all their warranty/exchange benefits are for original owner. Check their site.

You're right Red Horn. Just have your friend do the frame exchange and pay yourself so you'll get a brand new one...

make sure you deff want white. a lot of people (including me) get white parts and then completely hate them because they get too dirty and nasty. and same thing with the blue, if you're gonna get blue make sure you're gonna like it in a few months.

try not to get major parts (frame, forks, bars, rims, hubs) in a color you might not like in a few months cuz they're expensive to just replace. get smaller parts in color like grips, stem, seat post clamp, sprocket, etc. that are easier and cheaper do replace if you dont like the color anymore.

and btw, my bike choice pwns yours. no offence =]

what about going old school and looking up old flat land bikes
with mags and shit
those bikes always had mad color
whatever you do dont be too trendy with it
be original with it
dont let someone elses idea build your bike
get your money together and think about you options
and get something you are really going to like and ride
that also looks good
