    new project

    i picked this up for 25 including all you see here, plus a new brake and chain.i plan on converting it to fixed. i want to replace the bb and crank, the only prob is it has cottered cranks and one of the pins is messed up. Any tips for removing it, also does anybody have any info on the frame?







    thanks

    or drill it out. if you're not going to reuse the cranks or bb, don't worry about ******** it up.
