    Swooped in last min on eBay and won this frame a couple weeks ago. Wouldn’t say it was a steal, but it’s a awesome frame for the collection. It has a few layers of paint, with black being the original color on it.
    Plans to make a strandie out of it, nothing high end. Just need ANOTHER bike that I can grab and go. I mocked it up with some straight forks I have and eventually I’ll try and take the green paint off of it to leave only the red or black paint visible.

    I love the look of that patina, the colors really meld well IMHO.

    I agree on the patine, I'm going to add some raw paint stripped forks that I have somewhere and see what the green, red and black looks like then. I'm trying to stay away from chrome forks, as almost all my other bikes have chrome forks on them.

    Here’s a picture of the frame with some raw paint stripped forks. Doesn’t look too bad. Might just hit those with some clear and call it a day.

    Picked up this rusty crusty 26” Murray Baja.
    No cracks, re-welds and it’s pretty straight. Guy I got it from was going to make it into a Klunker but I’m going to make it into a BMX cruiser.
    He included the original handlebars and threw in some extra wheels that I’ll use snatch the hubs off of. comes with an ACS slingshot style stem and moto handlebars.
