This bike is a great DIY example. I was given this bike in its original state, 12 speeds, turquoise rusted out frame, drop bars, brakes, etc... I dis-assembled the entire bike, stripped the brake system, grinded down all brake line nubs, cleaned joints, sand blasted the frame set, painted it (couldnt afford to powder coat), got a new decent wheel set and tires, a new cog and chain, cheeeap toe clips, chopped my drop bars and flipped em into bull horns, re-assembled, and wrapped and corked the bars. learned quite a bit from building this bike up myself and it just goes to show you what you can do with a little creativity. In the very near future, I'll be upgrading the stem, crank set/bottom bracket/chain ring (into a little higher gear ratio), and back tire, and I'll be switching the bullhorns out for some riser bars. I'll update photos once all that is done.
