    Hi everyone! I have been lurking for a couple of months now using the great info here to decided what I wanted to do. However just a coup,e of days ago I came across a great deal on a complete bike.

    It's a little bit of a mess and needs work. The back wheel is bent and spokes are broken, it's seeping some gas from the bottom end, the gas valve handle is broke and its been really badly painted. Overall though for $160 I think it was worth it.

    Yea I would totally be up for that. It will give me a goal to work toward. Honestly though I will probably read more than post, since I don't know much I can't offer much help, lol.

    Hey, I'm new here as well. It's interesting that I bought a complete bike and have the very same issues you have. I have tinkered enough to replace the wheel and new sprocket 44t kit. I will keep an eye on your post. I will be beginning a winter project sometime this year in my basement. I will start a built post as well.
