    Got this for cheap at the swap in Texas last month for an everyday, leave outside, don't care if it falls over kind of bike. I was pumped because I didn't have a green bike. When I got into it, turns out it's another maroon bike. Tried every trick I know to save the white darts, but the green would not come off without the white. I got sick of stripping paint so I just quit. I liked how it looked anyway. The bars are yuuugggee on this thing. Must have been a low end bike because the wheels, neck, original front fender braces and seat post were white instead of chrome. Fenders were trash so left them off.

    Not too bad, just rode it a minute before work this afternoon. Need to spray the seat with WD40 or something, squeaks loud as heck.
