I bought this in Victoria a month ago for seventy five dollars. It was in some sad state with all the plastic doo-dads, it's a 19" 1991 with all straight tubes and minor chain suck (now repaired). Since my explosif build is taking so long and the koa is too nice too ride I've been left with no wheels here so I'm fast tracking this little project with the parts I've collected here and there over the summer. I'll see how well the spray can flat black stands up before I put any decals on. I haven't posted a build yet so here it goes, though it's not done.

A reliable cheap beater.

I agree some decals would finish the bike off- great job, looks amazing, I love it when something 95% of folk would throw in the skip gets transformed and ends up looking better than 95% of the bikes owned by the aforementioned skip punters.

if that makes sense?

good work 8)
