Default the bike restoration (lots of huge pics)

From this thread: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=97973

I bought this thing for $10 and so far I have spent $5 on a can of new metallic blue paint. I'm not gonna explain much, pictures should speak for themselves.

Awesome job. I'm going home next weekend after finals and bringing my old bike back to school. Need to start using it again with current gas prices.

good point! I dont know abotu around you but around me when people steal bikes that take all the stickers off and paint it up. So thats where that comment came from. People might think you stole it or something. thats all

Looks nice...I like the color. You should be able to at least get $50 for it.

Very nice! I used to work as an assembler for Toys R Us a while back and getting that style of brakes set up right can be a bit of a pain...

Overall, the bike looks really nice! I think you should ask $75 and haggle from there, but don't let it get away for anything less than $50
