Lucky.. I've been wanting a used visp but everyone around here tries to sell theirs for 180+ which was more then what I payed retail like 3-4 years ago. Good luck, careful with the fork. Mine started to crack from everyday riding not doing any tricks or curb hopping

Ya I got really lucky. I'm a bit of a CL whore on the bikes for sale and catch good deals. I'm going to be in the look out for a carbon fork if the sellers don't want to much cheese for it ha!

It's actually taken down to the bare metal and clear coated.

curious to see how it fits. I recently built up a 55cm Visp, and it feels quite small.

So I intstalled the headset and assembled the whole bike to feel out the fit. I gotta say it feels like a pretty true 58cm, just as tall as my old Fuji conversion.

I stripped my Visp and put a wire brush bit on a hand drill to even out the finish. Looks great. I've had bad experiences with spray paint. Paint needs to bake in a kiln to be hard enough for a bike frame.

Thanks for the input. This frame was sandblasted by the previous owner so the surface is pretty pitted. Also I'm not in to the raw aluminum look, prefer raw steel. As far as the spray paint I'm pretty handy with it and this is going to be a super budget build, so I'm not goin to get mad if the paint gets destroyed. Most of the parts will be second hand and painted

Well I took your advice and sanded down the frame and put some coats of satin clear on it instead of rattle canning.
