I need some help with my bike

I need a really cheap front tire for the Honduh. I don't think the one that is on there right now is fly enough. And it would help if it matched the rear (although I don't know what it is), and naturally I need a shop to do it for free. The reason I need something as critical as a tire to be cheap is because I need to look fly. So please, take a bunch of time p-chopping my bike and make it look awesome. I'm new to bikes, so if I could touch it up easily from a tip-over, that would be helpful. Fack, I almost forgot. I hate waiting at stop lights with my three weeks of riding experience. I know cars, not bikes. So is it a magnet? What works, what doesn't work. I don't want to waste my time searching for the info, so simply feed it to me. Thanks in advance.

Someone ate some pee with their cereal this morning and then went to the beach and got some sand in their vagina.

I can give you a tire company sticker so it looks like you have new tires? You can also use a white sharpie to bring old tire logos to life on the sidewall.

I didn't want to act like a whore and ask for too much. But you brought it up, can you help me sell it? I'd like 5k for it, if I get it all dolled up. Without, 4.5k

Can you please sharpen these drill bits for me?

I'd do it my self but I don't have the time.

It's not hard you can do in no time.

I'll buy some beer.

But it's faster to take 30 to write a post & wait to be spoon fed, than it is to search Google & actually read something!

Why is everyone so hyper about it, if the question is valid, why not. I didn't know you all fell from heaven with any skill you might ever need in life... Some people are just not as gifted as others...
There are maybe a hand full of sport bike riders that will actually just go and pay what the tag says, everyone else is going to be digging around trying to find a better price.

I understand getting the biggest bang for the buck. But if you have not offered any help to anyone, do not expect people to line up to do free/beer work. As for the redundant questions, they have been asked a zillion times. Use the search feature. Even then, after a while, the begging becomes annoying.

Case in point: G2G needed a trailer for something. He contributes to the motorcycling community all the time. People popped up all over offering to lend him equipment.
