After almost a year (and almost $600) my bike is done!
The frame was purchased on Craigslist. I took it apart. I stripped it and repainted it lavender. I was able to salvage a lot of parts. I did my best to get used parts before I got new ones ( Yellow Bike, Frankenbike, and CL). When I bought new stuff I went local (Thank you guys at the Peddler).
