1997 Dyno Compe

1997 Dyno Compe restored in an old school throwback with 87 Pro Compe Team decals. This entire project was all to prove to my wife that I could build a bike without buying any parts whatsoever.

I acquired this bike along with a few others from a Cleveland city theft recovery auction.

My wife got annoyed with the amount of BMX in the garage, and because I kept buying bikes & parts. 
So I made a bet with her that I could build a complete bike with only parts I already have. This bike is the result of that bet, however as of today (10.14.22) I still have to finish brakes, pads & gyro, or spintech (depending on which cables I have currently).
This bike is a random hodge podge of parts, so purists might want to leave now
FYI I do not care if my bikes are "as they came" on the showroom. When I was riding actively, I never wanted my bike like it came from the bike shop. I always wanted to add something new and I did not care how I got it lol. 
So that's the mindset I use in building my bikes. It also helps in saving some $ lol

With that said, my builds will be what I think looks cool, and is era appropriate. I realize this bike stretches the era part but in the end idgaf, it looks awesome to me.

All Powdercoating done by Myers Coatings in Canton, OH.

**** The pic with the GT Rebound decals is what I started with from the Cleveland theft recovery auction****
(Obviously the GT Rebound (MTB) decals were an attempt by the thief to obscure the bike)
