I think it may have once been a Schwinn. The rust has been painted over once - badly.

Came with the Schwinn.

Bent dropouts, but somehow still works alright.

Off an Academy-special Ozone 500!

I have absolutely no clue where that wheel came from.

One-piece, a disaster waiting to happen - the dust cap doesn't actually cover the bearings.

Mongoose? I think?

Cheap plastic crap pedals, and a chain pieced together from scraps of other chain.

A worn-out Kink 43t up front that actually wasn't as worn out as I remembered when I put it on. 16t rear.

This is a bike I built for a friend who said she really wanted a BMX. I was drunk, and I told her I would build one up for her. She later called me on the promise, and being a somewhat decent guy, I hooked her up. Some of it was pretty ghetto, but the price was right. The only part I was sad to see go, was the pink anodized aluminum straddle cable hanger - early 90's MTB much? The brake was a Dia-Compe AD-990 that was missing some parts, so I basically pieced it together with random brake parts out of my parts bin.
