1982 Healing HMX 500

Pulled from a swamp and revived.

Full custom build for my daughter to ride. Blasted and repainted in Ford purple pearl with repro HMX-600 decals.
Freeagent 1" threadless forks. stem and headset fitted. Freeagent 32 hole hubs laced to Alex rims. 3 piece Dotek 155mm crank-set. Anodised alloy bars and custom Velo seat. Dia-compe brakes robbed from an old road bike. And chrome Mongoose valve caps to finish it off.
And I've only just realised, it was set up with the drive on the left when I got it ??????

Nice Job, a mix of old and new school! The main photo makes it look like a cruiser with 24"s smile

Thanks, Hard to believe that it was my 6yr old daughter that chose the colour, the parts and the overall look.
