    Restored the PROFLEX

    I have restored BMX bikes, surfboards, cars, road bikes and this is my first mountain bike, I got the bike for free the elostomer was melted and the frame and drive train needed a good cleaning. I changed up a few parts with what I had laying around and here you have it, cant wait to see how it rides.
    This is how I got it.

    and this is how it looks.

    Probably not comfortably with that saddle angle pointed towards outer space.

    Good job keeping the long stem! So many people are restoring older bikes but trying to put modern cockpits on them, ruins the look and no doubt the ride as well.

    Looks great, get a ride report asap!

    Pretty cool!! Is the quadra 5 a keeper? It would be complete with a Girvin, IMO.

    Bar end delete - Win!

    Goofy saddle angle - Fail.

    Tilt the saddle nose down so the saddle is flat and you've got a winner. Great score and good job on the tidy up!

    How are the forks?

    Looks great, nice work, the fork looks squooshed.
    Some pinned platforms are in order, or if you're looking for period correct some bmx pedals.
    Love the gum walls.
    Round and round we go
