Default Spooky kit

After weeks of waiting for all my parts to arrive from Spooky Tooth (a horror show in itself) I have decided to get rid of 90% them because for the most part they were all, in my opinion, poor quality.

I'm going to mark this down as a very expensive life lesson!

The frame is a red headed step child, and after some evaluation I have decided not to risk my life with it (thus the bullet point" I dare you to ride it you little turd" on the website).

Many of the parts did not fit, at least one was used, the wheels are far from true, the springer that they sent had brake bosses welded over the chrome and they are in the wrong location so they really do not work (for me anyway), the hairpin seat was tacky and needed to be refinished... I could go on and on...literally!

Anyway last night I tore it all apart and will be selling all the parts on ebay to try to recoup my losses. I bought an Electra and I'm going to do it right this time.

By the way thanks pirate, sick an Venice! You guys ship fast, are awesome professional and make this hobby a lot less spooky
