Nicely done, very tasteful build.

I picked up another hard core that I'll be trying to restore later this year. It's in pretty sad shape, but it's another early one with the Suntour dropouts and hard core fork!

Amazing. I love the paint. Also love all of the black, it really sets the frame off. Is this a keeper or just a project?

Thanks to you both. It's amazing how bright the paint is in the daylight.

@mkozaczek: Where'd you find the latest HC?

@ez054098: This one's a keeper. I did a fair amount of flipping over the past year or so and I think I've finally found some stability in my collection. :)

Found it in Pittsburgh. Pretty beat but there is potential.
