$50 Holy Roller...






I picked up this gem off of Craigslist for two twenties and a ten. Hopefully Krown can work me into his schedule and we can get this little lady hardtailed. I do have concerns about the backbone and support braces causing headaches when trying to run a smaller tank but I'm hoping with a little southern ingenuity we can steer clear of the 13 gallon stock monster.

Looking for ideas and input. Feel free to comment and tell me I'm a genious...or that I should have went to Applebees instead but I couldn't pass....she's a beaut.

Now that makes another reason to get a new tubing bender and make a frame jig!!! Love it man, we just need to search for the engine! Loving it man.

Hell yeah, I've already been looking. Would have love to found an earlier year with the SOHC, but its all good for $50 bones. I'm thinking 4 into 1 with a Supertraaaappppp and 21's front and back, boardtracker style...just get weird.

Ha..yeah, well...I talked to Chris at Limey Bikes in Austin and he said it was a bad idea to relace to a 21" because of torque warping/bending the spokes on the rear end resulting in my untimely death. I told him I would take it under consideration. Ha.

Maybe I'll just go 18 & 19. Either way the bitch is getting some spokies.
