New Acquisition

  1. So This bike was one of a lot of 5 bikes for $30. There is also a nice fuji mtb in decent cond, an "ok" quality mtb of no recognizeable name and 2 lowest quality huffys.

    I've been wanting to build one for some time! I think I'll keep w/ the yello and swap out the rust for black :ph34r:

    The wheels were almost completely succesfully reclamed by the great mother. Which is ok 'cause I'm gonna have to build a set anyway. Although a good worksman wheel w/ its 11 guage spokes should be able to handle the "rubber donut treatment" it's really my least favorite set-up in the kits. And the front has no surface to apply brakes to. Everything else should survive w/ blasting and paint. :biggrin:

    For any wheel efficianados out there, aren't both wheels laced up incorrectly? It seems that was their demise!
