    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!

    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

    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!
