Nice score, I wouldn't call bmx basic though. When I went from 26 to 20 the bar was raise and sh!t got crazier.

I'm guessing that 48 hole back wheel might do double duty as a boat anchor.... :D I'll probably just keep it on the cheap and see how it rides, then score a nice wheelset if I can.

Got some more parts together.
Got the rim for free, a brand new Suzue sealed hub for $5, spokes and nipples for $20, bars, tires, seat, pedals, t-shirt and stickers for $113.
For some reason, the dude I won the frame and parts from created a shipping label on the 16th, and finally JUST TODAY got ahold of me saying it's finally shipping out. I could have been rollin' today, but it's looking like the middle of next week.

I found the cruiser frame about 2 years ago on ebay too.... $40. :D
The chainstays are stupid long though, I have them at almost 16". Any less and the tire rubs.

This little bike is ROCK SOLID. For a total of $275 and the stem and cranks from my cruiser, I'm really happy with it.
