Hey gang. I bought my first project bike today from a nice gentleman on Craig's List. It's a mid 80's true tempered steel "Gary Fisher Hoo Koo e Koo" mountain bike. I paid 100 for it, yeah kinda steep for a 20 year old bike with outdated components but something about it wouldn't let me stop thinking about it. I stripped it almost bare as it was ridable when I bought it. It currently has a Shimano Biopace triple crank & a 6 speed free wheel.
I plan on new cantilever brakes, updated wheel set, new tires, updated crank set & shifter/derailers, seat-post & saddle along with a new handlebar. I've never done anything like this before so this will be quite a learning experience for me.
