Need to make a gumpaste BMX bike, doesn't need to be gumpaste I guess, but needs to be about 3" tall (floor to handles) by 4" long. I wanted to check for advice on how to approach this before I tried to figure it out myself, I'm sure you guys can save me some time! It's gonna be leaning on the side of the cake, so it doesn't need to be able to stand up on it's own. Thanks!

Thanks for the pics, I'm wondering if those spokes are edible though?

The spokes appear to be spaghetti painted with silver luster. See the wheel on the right... they are unpainted.
