    Genuine Bicycle Products Article 2 Klunker build

    Our last A2 in stock, my friend wanted the bike with gears for the hilly terrain in his town. We start with a frame and Red Menace fork installed. There will be some tweaks to make it work as a klunker type bike as it currently has 110mm rear spacing.

    Picked this one up on Friday from a seller on Offerup. The guy said that he bought it at an estate sale out in the country and the bike was hanging in the barn. Apparently people either didn't see it or weren't interested in it. Hard to believe this bike lasted in this condition in a barn in...
