The 1st!

I got a blue one today for $59 at Wally World. Cheap but not cheap enough...who cares...it was on a gift card. I immediately raced home and started swapping parts....It's definitely a 1st in its class of bikes!

The bike looks like it was repainted but it wasn't, looks cool though!







BARN FRESH!!

will you please take off the warning sticker by the stem. Our PC world has gone too far. Just like the warning on my shotgun that is permanately stamped.

Hey DD...on another BFK point.

You have a 05 (or 06) stingray repop and a Black Firday krate frame right there...do they appear to be made on the same assembly line? I know your not an engineer :wink: but you have wrenched on hundreds of bikes...does the BFK appear to be made to the same standard as the earlier sting-ray repops, like 'frame wise'...I know they used some other cheezer parts ie. sissy bar.

Just a question that has been floating around...

The frame is about the same dimension but the welds are better on the '05 and the tubes is different around the rear fender mount...I'll get some pictures to show.
 
Thanks guys! Loved it and did all the swaps in like 4 hrs after I got. The bike rides 10x better.

That's not PC (I mean to say that the warning label has nothing to do with "PC", not to be ironic by stating that your statement concerning the warning label is not PC).
