as the title says i am an experienced road cyclist and mechanic that will be rebuilding a bmx bike.
the bike is a chrome dyno compe. from the appearance and a quick search i would say it is from the late 80s-early 90s. the frame seems in great shape and the wheels are relatively true but all of the bearings need grease and the axle threads are shot. it will also need your standard tube/tires/cables.
the build is for an underprivileged inner city kids birthday in about a month. i am willing to invest my own money in the bike but i wouldnt mind getting your input on where to buy parts and what brands are recommended to keep the price down. how much is reasonable to invest in such a project?
