1996 Dyno VFR

Yard sale find that I decided to clean up and make look nice. ***SOLD IT***

I picked this up for 40 at a yard sale. It was pretty rusty and dirty with some goofy parts on it, but it had some nice stuff that I thought was worth it. The pedals I put on it were new in the box that I've had sitting around for a while, I had the seat, brake lever and grips in with a bunch of spare parts, put on some old tires of mine and just cleaned up the rest. I don't know what I'm going to do with this, I just wanted to have some fun trying to make something look cool. (That 4th picture is how it looked when I got it, lol.)

I just picked up the same bike for the same price! Awesome, what did you use to make her shine like that?

Re: 1996 Dyno VFR

I gave it a bath in oxalic acid to get off all the rust. (There were little spots all over.) Then I shined it up with paper towels and Turtle Wax chrome polish. I used Mothers aluminum polish on the stem.

Re: 1996 Dyno VFR

I got lucky and found this dyno frame up the street from my house somebody was cleaning out their garage and I saw it and ask and they gave it to me. So I took it home and started taking apart my Mongoose Legion mag series I already owned and putting together the Dyno. It looks very nice considering the fact that it's a half breed LOL, but I was surprised when I found the same wheels on a Dyno VFR so it worked out nicely got to say. I plan to buy everything to make it all original again but for now I can ride with pride on a old school VFR that you hardly see any more the old red beater.

Re: 1996 Dyno VFR

Hey I got the same exact bike off of craigslist.
I have a couple question for you. Where is the best place to get parts and what do they call the type of brakes on the that bike?
Your bike looks awesome I hope I can get my bike to look like that.
