Condor folding commuter bike frame

This was my "I just finished classes and I need something to waste time on" project this year. This old German condor Frame was at the bottom of the junk pile bound for recycling when I found it. The bottom bracket was a proprietary size, but just happened to be big enough to fit a standard 78 mm MTB BB shell inside it....So, I cut the BB shell off another junk bike, smoothed it all up, and fit it inside the Condor's BB shell. It was a tight fit and I brazed it a bit to keep it from slipping. From there it was just a matter of finding junk around the shop to put on it. Now I have the most bad-ass folding BMX fixie in Memphis. I rule.

Edit: I used to rule. This fantastic (fantastic in the crappiest way) little frame was stripped for parts for my latest rehab, the beautiful benotto refit that will be up in a couple of days.
