I really wanted to not only make this bike a "do it all", comfortable to ride bomber, but also expand my home mechanic skills. So I rebuilt or replaced everything possible on this bike whether it needed it or not. Once the frame was stripped, I sealed all tube openings with FlexSeal tape and filled the inside of the tubes to soak overnight with EvapoRust, and then FluidFilm treatment. I swapped the headset with DIY hardware store fittings instead of expensive pressing tools, replaced the loose ball bottom bracket with a sealed unit, and rebuilt the hubs on the craigslist wheels. Had a lot of fun with this project and now it's my main commuter bike.
