Howdy from Seattle

Hello to all!

Bike bike bike, I like them all... Please help me I'm addicted to bike builds and never sold a one. Hoarding I tell you hate to ride the same bike 2 days in a row. New bikes are nice but where I'm at people trash and abandon.

My latest find was left at the gas station trash bin, a woman's Trek with the chain rusted solid. Single Track 820 not a great bike CroMo frame free hub 7s. I've come to the conclusion I can't save them all. So this is one that won't see the road again. The frame was pristine but just not right for me. In the dismantling I was happy to find that the only bad set of bearings was the BB but the seals held on the rest oh ya! The only rust other than the chain was the bolts on the stem, and whatever dripped on the cranks and wheels.

Now my problem is what am I going to put the soon to be be polished parts on, bruhahaha!

welcome to the forums... you can always build one up and give it away... or take it to a resale shop that funds a charity.
