Picked this one up a few weeks ago. I was planning to use the parts because I didn't think the frame was any good. But then I saw it! :o It was pretty good! Took it home, stripped it, cleaned it and put some new components on it I had in the shed!
A new black seatpost is on the way, so it's not finished yet, but I thought you guys would like to see it!

The color in the first pic is OK and reflects the real color. The other pics are a bit faded... Think it's too green for this time of year! :lol:

Got some yellow tires......... And I love it!!

I'm only 6.2 feet! :lol: Not ridden it yet.... waiting on the seatpost to complete it!

The wheels are just on it for the pics. I'm still not sure what tires to put on it. And the wheels will change with the tires..

Got some black Onza porcs, whitewall Panaracer Magic's or amberwall IRC Piranha's.

Any ideas??
