    Was quoted 25 bucks to true the wheel, but it turned out to be on the house the first time.

    I don't plan on crashing again, so it's a good deal. So I bought a set of BMX pads to make my bike safer. They had a set of S&M pads, same brand as my handlebars. I'll just reverse the pads and they'll match the bike. Now it's done, except for a 42 foot skid. I still need to find a way to do that without ruining my rear tire.

    I took it out for a Father's Day ride and everything checked out fine. I consider it finished and will now just try to get in as many rides as possible. I'll also be able to catch up on all the other builds going on.

    Great over all look. I don't remember what the frame paint color was, but it has a real vintage look to it with your blacked out parts and that saddle and tire combo.

    I bought it this way, flat black with no original paint left.

    I thought it would be a lot more. They also are known for correcting little things. I found a small blemish while looking at it again, but it wasn't bad enough for me to take it back for, but I could have. It'll be covered by a head badge anyway.
