    Racing and/or old timey theme bikes are awesome.
    I didn't build one.
    Working rusty crusty derelicts are cool.
    I didn't do that.
    Bomber/"Klunker" type bikes, basic or loaded with hi-tech state of the art parts rule.
    I didn't make one.
    Gadgets and odd-ball out-of-the-box controls are the bomb.
    I don't have any.
    Panoramic scenic vistas and civic art feature backdrops are fantastic.
    Too dog-gone hot to ride that far.
    Assembling otherwise unused parts into a rider is a-ok.
    Ok then, nothing but bike.:comando:

    Thanks guys. With this years awesome collection of detailed exotics, theme bikes, and scratchbuilt customs I reckon a rebuilt street-tired atb ain't much to look at, but it was definitely worth doing. This frame is fairly light and dead straight, and the geometry suits me to a T. Pretty amazing considering how thoroughly the previous user trashed the original wheels and gears.

    Re-use, re-cycle, re-rat. It's a great feeling to turn trash into treasure, you have done that with this one for sure! Looks solid, and as mentioned; it's black. Who can argue with that ?

    Good looking ride. I'll bet it rides great and you don't need anything fancy to play along. You can just build whatever.......man....:21:...nice job...loved the dry humor too.
