    Going to check out a cruiser frame - what should I look for?

    24" BMX cruiser frame - . It is just the frame and BB, no fork. I think its a Schwinn. Is there anything in particular I should check out? Is there any way to make sure the head tube isn't ovaled out? And how do i tell what size fork it will take (1", 1-1/8")
    thanks for any suggestions you all have

    I don't know how to tell if the HT is ovaled, besides just looking. But if it's a 1", it will be threaded with a quill stem. If it's 1 1/8", it won't be threaded and will have a regular stem.
