I hope you get a lot of use out of it after all that time and money. I spent about $400 on my last build off bike and it sat in the way unused, now its at a friends house with more room. I might use it on some cruiser rides this year, dont know yet. So, Im a little more careful on buying the fancy parts if Im not really going to use it much. I have about $30 into this bike so far for the paint, everything else was traded for or free. Its gonna end up in my friends basement as well. Space is tight here but bikes are so addicting. I should get my frame primed tomorrow. Im having a hard time getting the piece off that holds the frame halves together. I might just leave it in place and tape over it. I have more sanding to do on it yet near the crank area. If I just get everything smooth around the scratches and get the rust off, that will be good enough for me.
