    DJ builds are super simple and can be done much cheaper than a regular mtb. One brake, no gears, and no lightweight BS. A grand is way too much to spend on one IMO.

    Dude, $150 for that bike is a hell of a good deal if:
    1) fork is not blown out
    2) frame not cracked
    3) crank arm or spindle not bent
    4) rear wheel rolls reasonably well
    5) not STOLEN

    If the issue is just the disc brake rotor, definitely buy it. IMO.

    That's weird damage - can't quite figure out how you ding a bike up in those spots like that. Guy didn't say what happened by any chance did he?

    He said it was in the back of his truck and he did not tie it down good enough and was all over on the back of his truck

    Switch to single speed, go through the fork, probably needs the bearings gone through or replaced. Me chain and grips. How are the tires.... and you said brake bleed... so basically a normal tune up...

    Already in process of converting it to single and headset feels good BB feels good the mayor think is a break bleed but the breaks have adjustable levers so that may be the only problem

    I'm not sure what size sprocket/chainring you can fit on that frame, but with a 16t freewheel in the back, you're going to need a 34t up front for a decent gear ratio. Hubs for larger freewheels don't work with small freewheels like 13t and 14t.
