How much did you get it for?
€175. It had been sitting in some guy's garage as a half-done project since 1999 or so. Not quite a steal, but not half bad either considering how few parts need swapping.
There is some nice kit on that
This I'll be an interesting one, whats your plans?
Kind of gave up on the ratrod look after I took a spraycan to the included (too short!) rigid fork and it turned out horrible. Currently pondering what color powdercoat would go alright with the red shifters, fluor yellow brakes and blue rims. Off-white might be cool. So would raw unpolished aluminum!
I kinda like the paint
Flat bar please, and it'll be ok. Different, in a good way
The paint is in pretty bad shape though it doesn't show as much in the pictures. The top-tube is more or less pre-sanded down.
Hacked off and installed some flats this very morning! The risers combined with the slightly too-long fork made the handling pretty laid-back, I'm hoping this puts it in the sweet-spot.
Oh, forgot to say, AWESOME trails in the background! Where is that!
Haha, I'm afraid that much like my paintjob the pictures made it look better than it actually is. They're the dunes of Kijkduin, and you're not allowed to go offroad at all. It was also swarming with hikers, kids, roadies, people pushing prams and suicidal dogs, so you couldn't even go fast on the paved paths.
Although, the paving is getting pretty bad and a couple sandpits had formed right on the asphalt. When it's not as busy it might not be a bad place to play around considering it's about 15 miles closer to where I live than the nearest proper trails.
