    Ooooooohhhhh...... :D I would have killed for that frame weeks ago. I couldn't talk someone out of theirs, and then simply finding another one was going to cost me too much. Good thing....I am going with a different frame style now for sure.

    Love what ya got there.....have fun!

    That's hillarious, I was thinking yesterday how I needed to make sure I got in a shot of the obligitory "Off the Walls" in one of the first photos.

    I'm still deciding between a couple of frames, plenty of time I figure to get rolling.

    Nice Frame. Are you painting it? Say no. Eitherway, you will do it justice.

    done! :shock:
    as for wheels and tires im looking for some 28" tried some balloons but theyre just way to tight so i guess its hunt for the singletube tires and wheels that it wouldve come with(fortunately theres 3 colors to chose from...black,white, and red)
    btw anyone have any 28" wheels for sale?!?!?

    I was able to cram balloons into my 28" wheel Elgin that is just like that, it will work with some washers and straight wheels. 26x 1 3/4 work better, but those 28" wheels are tough to find sometimes.
