You are probably correct. This was really my first and since the bike bug got me.. I have 6 bikes now and I love my new hobby.This bike weights in at about 22 lbs...and I still love to ride it. Working on a vintage bridgestone frame now.. and will be updating my profile with few more bike builds...

i like the look, but with all the time and effort spent on the conversion from walmart bike to decent i think you could have gotten a much nicer frame, one that isnt weighed down with bondo.
