Does my newest bike belong in this forum??

I recently purchased this from a local charity store(like the slavation army store but a local charity) for $10.

IM just wondering if anybody knows anything about this bike?

Its a yokoto Redwood city.

Heres some lousy fuzzy pictures that i took yesterday evening, the frame is covered in surface rust but its cleaning up very well.










And i do have the front wheel, its just covered in surface rust and i had it on my wire whell when i took these pictures.


Thanks,Jeff

Once you get it back together, it looks like it might be ---- we'd like to see those pics as well.

Looks like it. I'd suggest changing the seat; that extra extra wide thing WILL interfere with your pedaling and cause much thigh pain within a half mile.

Im uploading some pictures right now, but that seat is actually very comfortable. I've riden this bike over five miles without a problem, i may change it out later though, and give the seat to my mom for her cruiser.

Heres the completed bike(ill have to take pictures tonight on my usual ride) enjoy. i am sorry that its dirty, i got caught in the rain and went through some mud.lol























sure you cant really tell i did that much to it, but it has cleaned up alot. when i got it there was surface rust on 90% of the bike, to quote my dad "dont get that rust bucket, its not worth ten bucks" lol when he saw what it looked like when it was done he said i got a pretty good deal.lol
