1997 Profile Racing X-File 24

"Lady Blue"

When I got her from Jakehigh5, she was a hot mess.  After I got her seatstay repaired and got her powdercoated Grabber Blue to honor the Ford Mustang, I decided to build her with my own hands -- save for the re-installation of the bottom bracket.  Initially, I didn't see myself putting anything but Profile cranks on her, but once I put the Powerlite Driveshafts on, I knew they were where they belonged.  I will change out the wheelset and tires, so expect a parts rundown at that time.  She will be a show bike, but will get ridden plenty!
