Women's 1xConversion Rebuild

Giving this frame new life! Found this frame on the side of the road to be scrapped. Brought it home to fix up for my significant other to ride. It was not in the best condition with the frame spray painted black, missing components and broken shifters/brake levers. We stripped the paint with paint stripper and a wire brush attached to a cordless drill. I decided to grind down the welds to make it look more like a higher-end bike. The frame and fork is coated with Rust-Oleum Filler Primer, Gloss Enamel Paint(Antique White), and Automotive Enamel Clear Coat. We then bought som components off eBay and Amazon to complete the bike.
