1992 Balance

1992 Balance

Frugal Build

I got this frame and fork from someone at a swap meet for FREE. He`s a regular seller there and I was a regular seller/buyer. I told him that my B-day was coming up and he gave it to me as a b-day present. It was in pretty rough shape. Rust everywhere. I cleaned it up and soaked it in CLR for a few days, and it came out ok. I got the" itch" to build it so I started parts hunting and rounding up the spare/mock up parts that I have.This was definitely the cheapest build I ever did I took it out for a spin and it`s so smooth. I heard these were race bikes, but it looks so much like a Haro Master.

Ear infection symptoms need to be recognized when you suffer from any Ear related problem. Ear infection can be found in infants or in old people. There is no specific age for ear problems. But mainly it occurs in children.

i like this frame. Those top tubes sure look like a late 80's Master for sure!  Cool ride.

I have excellent news for the world: there's no such thing as new wave...
