A buddy of mine just got 2 new mountain bikes, so he was nice enough to give me his old one.
Ive been out of the biking game all together for quite some time, but when I did bike it was mostly street riding, and every now and then a bmx course.
But Im really looking forward to getting this thing back together and ripping up some of the local Illinois trails
here is the bike as i got it, it had been sitting unused for 3 years, so it needed ALOT of tlc
anyway, its down to bare frame now, now i can grease all the bearings...
here are pics of what i have on route, i got everything i need for this one for $100 bucks, its not all TOP of the line stuff, but itll work great for the basic trail riding ill be doing, ebay magic does me well
im also wiring a led in a guitar distortion pedal, in excange he is powder coating my frame/bars satin black
and my other buddy that normally does my pc stuff, is doing my crank/crank/kneck in gloss black
forks being prepped for paint
brakes/gear selectors/ rear and front brakes all being soaked with pb blaster, to help break up the grime of sitting for 3 years... will probably wash them off and dry them tonight... and use some sand paper on the small rust areas
