Sorry to be a smart ass, but did you do something to cause this cousin to be pissed off at you before he sold you the bike?

I hope you didn't pay over $50 for the bike pictured. Going by the looks of that bike it is probably from the late 80's or early 90's. Definately not a downhill bike by today's standards.

It may be worth $5 but unless you already have the rest of the parts I don't believe it would be worth fixing up.

That Frame looks very similar to the old Cannondale Killer V hardtails.
