2001 Diamond Back Skindog

Purchased the bike from a seller on Mercari. Didn't know much about the bike other then photos posted on the web sight. It was pretty much all there except the wheels. The bike was very neglected and

I purchased this bike from a seller on Mercari. The bike was mostly complete and the price with shipping was reasonable. The bike was very dirty and neglected. Once I was able to look it over in person. I stripped it down of all the parts and degreased and washed everything. I used some model paint to try and touch up some of the chips and scrapes. I was very pleased with how this worked out. It really brought the bike to a very presentable state. I scrubbed and polished a lot of smaller bits and pieces with some rubbing compound and paint polish and wax. Most of the hardware I cleaned with a wire brush and some sponge type sanding blocks to remove rust along with some chrome polish and q tips. I purchased some brand-new parts to help with cosmetics and functionality. The seat, pivotal post, 3 peace cranks, Pedals, chain, chain sprocket, wheels, tires, tubes & grips were purchased new. Everything else is as it came to me just refurbished or cleaned up. I really tried to keep it as OG as possible and make it my own in the process. I really like who it has turned out.
