I got the frame & fork from a buddy of mine that worked at a shop. A customer brought the bike in with dry rotted tires, bad brakes, rusty handlebars, and just in bad overall condition. When he found out how much it would be to fix it up, he said screw it and left it there. A few bucks later and this is what it became. The only original parts are the frame and fork (which cleaned up real nice with a wipe down). It's pictured with cheap-o cross tires, which I've since replaced with Continental Ultra Sports. (The blurry photo with the flat bars is what it looked like when it came into the shop.)
