    this is a craigslist find. i drove 2 hours to pick up "what was left of it." Luckiliy i had another iverson that i can use for parts.
    there are two layers of paint over the original yellow. some of the decals are still on it!

    Sweet find, those are cool bikes 8)
     
  5. Awesome, I have always liked the frame design on those. I'd be too tempted to make it shoot flames out the back or stuff a rocket in it though. :wink:

    Nice, I just finished building this one out of a girl's frame. It's a clone

    Seeing your build is what motivated me to build mine. Very cool!

    I love that style bike. I'm dating myself....but I wanted one of those new. What is that chainguard off of? I have one on a 26" Coast to Coast bike that does not look original to my bike. Thanks, Gary

    The chainguard on one came off of a stelber-built iverson rebel 500

    Had to make a seatpost out of stock tubular steel to make up for the gap between the seat adjustment mount and the seat post on the frame.

    it was a pain getting all that "baked-on" red paint off of it but the result was well-worth it!
