    Got this frame and fork in on Monday, shady deal, not gonna get into that. Frame was in decent condition, lots of scratches, several dings and some patina. Decided to make this one kind of a go anywhere rider, a good thorough 180 grit sand down then a couple coats of satin black. Came out pretty good, built it with spare parts I had laying around, pretty decent riding bike.

    Nice build.looks great, but it's begging for cruiser tires.

    Thanks, gotta have a bit of bmx flare in there somewhere. :D been kinda mixxin and matchin tires on this one, I have a set of all white thick brick style tires off of a Felt that might look pretty cool on it, also some regular white walls. I'll switch them around this weekend and see how she looks. That black looks good with any thing.

    Nice bike, I think the all white tires would look cool.
