I did more stuff to it and want to post an updated picture.
That's what my bike started as, a Cranbrook. I will give you a quick rundown of where all the parts I replaced came from. My bottom bracket, crankset, and handlebars are off of a Roadmaster 24" mountain bike I picked up at a yard sale for $4. My pedals are from a bike I found at a scrapyard, which didnt cost me anything. My shock forks are from another Roadmaster mountain bike I found in a dumpster. They were a little loose when I put them on my bike, recently I adjusted them to take some of the slop out. My stem is from an old Schwinn road bike I found at the park. My front wheel is a Worksman with drum that I got at the East Coast rally in August for $35. My seat is a Worksman seat, 13"W, which I picked up on eBay for $35 with free shipping. My rear wheel, which you already know the specifics of, I picked up on eBay for $45 I think. Unfortunately, the store I bought the wheel from is now out of business ( Southern Cali Customs). My luggage rack I picked up at WallyWorld for $15 or something like that. So I have literally replaced every single non-motorized component of this bicycle, and its taken me two years to do so. Of course, that's on an almost non-existent budget. If I had the money to go out and buy these parts, I could have probably had them all in a week or less. But I think I appreciate my bike more this way. There is no way I will ever get rid of this bike or sell any of my parts.
