Dyno Compe project

Starting a new project. This was my bike when I was a kid so I am really excited to work on it.

Think of it as a "non-folding" folding bike. Can't wait to see it street ready again.

I am trying to remember all of the things that were cool when I was a kid, and add them to this build.

peregrind(sp) three piece crank
Mushroom grips
DK stem (although I think I am gonna keep the gyro)

I am also going to have the frame, fork and bars powder coated in pearl orange.

Bike is pretty darn clean as it is. New tires & tubes and it looks ready to go.

Finally got the frame fork and bars back from powdercoat. It looks amazing. The pictures don't do it justice.

Nice!! keep the gyro & 48's. Throw some Nippons on there. The old Haro bars look good as well.
