You've never seen Primo tenderizers before?

Those are just like old stock Haro cranks that are forged and heavy.

How do you like the seat?

I can't decided between a Macneil SL and stump post or a Coalition with a Fit post...

I think the only parts i'm getting for christmas is new cranks and maybe new tires.

Then I might build a front rim/get bike painted.

Good idea, the other one is huge and if you accidentally click on the first page you get confused.

I'll post mine after I get the scans back - I took a picture of it on the first ever roll of B&W that I developed
