I can't believe no one has bought this. I'd buy it but I already have so many unbuilt frames hanging around that it would probably never see the light of day again after going into my shop.

Amazing looking bike, thanks for sharing.

I would strongly advise moving the light from the head tube, it could rub off the fragile paint of the RH logo there.

Post the google link and just put spaces where there are periods, and we'll work it out. Or just go around and say "nice bike!" on 10 threads.

Sounds very cool.

Sell stuff here if you want to move it fast, but be aware we are all cheap here!

Ebay is the best place if you want to sell for higher prices.

I agree with T-Mar, I think $200 will be a hard sell. Maybe $125.

I also think the idea to get more money by turning it into an upright bike is borderline nuts. That would probably make it worth...

It's a decent quality frame with some rough paint--but doesn't look too bad. I feel like you should be able to get $100 for it. It'd make someone a nice beater for sure. I'd maybe ask for $125 and...

Yeah, I cringed when I read the title. I make all kinds of rude jokes with my friends sometimes, but putting it in writing online is pretty iffy.

You can buy new Shimano ones still, but I think they're all 14-28. Are you 100% sure you can't do a 28T cog?
