Thought I might try to save this.

My dad's friend gave me this DK and I let it sit around for a couple of years. I decided I would save it.

Had it powdered neon orange.

A brave move by the looks of it originally!  But turned out amazing!  Love the color.  How are you planning to build it up?

I'm new here but familiar with powder coating, so I have to ask, isn't $100 an excellent price for that? I have no idea what the going rate is though.

Thanks, I'm hoping to use a lot of parts I already have.

Have black zmags, dk stem, dk seat post and clamp.  I'm sure I can round up most of the parts from my attic, I hope.

I thought about it, but I don't want to spend much on this build.
