professionally painted (just didn't want the polished look!) and true & nice as can be w/black powdered cranks to match!
ok - bought for my son about 4 yrs. ago on ebay for 80 bucks!!! finally about 8 mos. ago he was ready to ride it. he's a kid and wanted it painted or powdered color of his choice so fine i got it painted burgundy at a professional auto paint shop. got the black powder coated technique 156mm cranks on ebay for 80 bucks and right now hes on temporary replacement sinz 160's until i come across some 160ish technique cranks. anyhow once he's ready for a bigger frame in about 5 months here i'll keep the frame & cranks for good & try to locate technique hubs & get them laced to a late 90's wheelset. again my son RACES this so it's obviously not show quality yet a very nice bike nonetheless.
