More Info:
Came across this ultra clean specimen in the biggest size for $100. Thought it was black/red but turns out it's a deep purple (maybe eggplant?) with hot pink decals. Initially wanted a brighter 90's color, but I couldn't pass it up! First order of business was to replace all black parts with silver. (made a HUGE difference) Scored these sweet tires from a friend (also made a huge difference!) Swapped the front end for a BMX style setup with motocross bars (love it!) Tried a full geared setup and then a 1x7 before deciding to go single speed. Loving the BMX vibe, stoked to have a fat tire bike in the herd now. Riding it makes me feel like a kid again!
