    Wow. You got all that stuff for free? The frame and all the parts when you originally received them and put them in your stash cost you nothing at all? I gotta shop where you shop!

    When I was in my twenties I had a 15' by 20' room filled with bikes cobbled together from curbside trash day and abandoned barn/stable parts. Between development and cost of living it's not as easy around here anymore, but a lot of guys on here have similar experiences.

    Ok you've got me on that one. I did originally pay to acquire the seat, brake cable and badge several years ago, they were left-overs from past builds. Technically I paid for the paint too, but it was left over from painting my tractor and another bike ;)

    Very convincing job on the frame mods! Unfortunately most people will never know the work that you put into it by looking at the finished bike . But the rest of us do!!!:thumbsup:
