I might do that. I keep looking at it thinking a restoration would be cool but then I start remembering everything else I have going on to (moving back into our house after a tornado all but destroyed it August 6th)

Re: Just had this roll into my shop...

Cool DB for sure... Is the owner an older guy like us, or a younger guy??? Not that it matters, just wondering if a younger guy might like something "newer"...

Thanks bro. It was (and still is) some nasty business. Over $75,000 in construction damages alone. My 16year old was on the couch sleeping when I heard the tree crack and I barely grabbed him and got him away from the living room before the ceiling crashed in.

Re: Just had this roll into my shop...

Thanks for all the good vibes brothas. And yes Wayne, I'm running the BMX department at our local shop. We're the ONLY ones specializing in BMX. All the other shops are road and mountain bikes with a couple low end BMX bikes in the back corner. I LOVE MY JOB NOW....lol

House is fixed. Insurance covered almost all of it but we spent our meager savings on incidentals during the construction time. But I'm extremely happy my family is safe. Now if I can just get my oldest of the damned ps4 to help me finishthe garage....lol

She came home with me last night. Started taking her apart but couldn't find my wrench to remove the pedals but I'll take her back to my shop to work on her today

Holy sh** yikes
Thank god that nobody got injured!

For us here in Germany tornados or the like are not really present at all.
Seems that at least for some areas in US such phenomenons are "normal" season wheather.
So the only wish is just to catch no hit...

Good time, and keep care of you and your family smile

Yea tornadoes are relatively common here. I've been through a bunch of them but never experienced this amount of damage before.

A new home for sure...lol. And working on her will be a joy. But I've ran across a couple of small issues....
Cranks are bent and the pedal is rusted on so I'm just gonna sawzall it off....lol
The seat post has been cut to almost nothing but I guess I'll have to find a laidback post so I'll fit on it.

Not sure what I'm gonna find once the cranks are off. The headset had crusty grease from the 80s
