More Info:
This was the first new bike I ever had. Got it for christmas when I was 12, had it stolen when I was 14, recovered it all ratty and spraypainted. Sandblasted and clearcoated the frame, and then slowly started changing parts until I thought I had it perfect. It was relatively light, fast and more importantly, completely bombproof (or so I thought.) It lasted through highschool and three years of college. About two weeks ago I got hit by a Corolla, totaling the bike, and taking the front bumper of the car with me for good measure. As it sits, I need a new fork, new rear wheel, new seatpost and possibly a new front wheel. I haven't looked at the rear dropouts or stays to see if they are bent, in which case I will be forced to permanetly retire my daily driver.
