This was a project that I started in October and just finished this week.  I purchased this barn find from member bmxromance back in October.  I have included the before pictures which was a mostly a pile of rust.  After a OX bath and some elbow grease things started to take shape.  I sent the handlebars in to be rechromed and I had the frame powder coated.  I then found a local powder coater to complete the color scheme.  I hand painted the original sprocket to resemble our flag. I purchased a 1981 Dia-Compe brake from member thankx23 which looks and works perfect.  For parts I could not salvage I tried to buy either from other members here or planetbmx, or bmxguru.  I came up with the red white and blue idea and was fortunate to find member K Chez.  If you ever need decals he is the man.  I could not have been happier with what he put together.  Thank you again to everyone on the site for the help and inspiration.  Now time to ride!
