    mtb on the cheap !

    bought this bike this morning for 48.50 from a local independant bike shop...it was sitting neglected in a corner.... got the frame, shifters, seat post, clamp, f / r brakes, BB, Truvativ crank arms/ chain rings, wheels w/ Motobecane hubs/ silver spokes/ Alex rims, bars, & stem....i think i made out ok. didnt take any pics when i first got it, but there was a little surface rust on the chainrings and cassette, the chain was basically rusted out, someone wrote " Team 7" on it in white out like 4 times ( dremel fixed that good enough) and it had some no name susp. fork.... so today i've been breathing life into the old girl, clenaing, greasing, lubing, adjusting, etc, etc, etc.... here's where im at right now...im waiting till my $40 rigid fork gets in and she should be good to go.

    That is a pretty good find for under $50. I hope you have fun with it.
