    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 probably worded that a bit awkwardly... back to the (my) roots would probably be more accurate. ;)

    awesome.
    ...shouldn't be too much more to get her up and running from there. Just watch your chain clearance on that c-stay 990.

    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.
