1997 Dyno Compe

HuMpTy DuMpTy Back Together Again

Bought this here as an almost complete for a "cheap" build for my now 6 year daughter.  What arrived was a mis-represented pile of junk with the following issues:
* Front hub bearings crunchy
* Rear drops beat up BADLY
* Forks bent inward and crooked
* Rusty spokes and rusty cranks
* Broken teeth on chain wheel
* Head tube stretched where upper headset cup doesn't stay pressed in
* Hammer marks and poorly machine polished stem
* Paint beat up with rust spots where paint is missing
I should have filed a case with PayPal but I decided to build it up any way.  Besides, I should have asked more questions of a newbie seller and should have asked for more pics.  Live and learn.
Here's what I ended up with:
* 1997 Dyno Compe frame in red and black splatter
* Replacement rider condition Asiku 97 and Dyno stamped forks, polished at home.
* Stock headset and bottom bracket
* Unstamped GT cranks polished at home
* GT pedals
* Dyno stamped freestyle bars
* Dyno inverted stem sanded flat and polished at home
* Tektro rear brake (came with frame)
* Bulldog front brake (added)
* Generic alloy wheels, non-matching, generic free wheel
* New upper Oryg cable (came with frame)
* Rider condition lower Oryg cable (came with frame)
* Refinished seat clamp, brake hardware, Oryg plates, stem hardware
* Porkchop skinwalls, Potts cable, brake pads, tubes, chain, and black chromo chainwheel bolts
* Mid-school Mongoose stamped post
* Daddy-o seat
* Odyssey levers (new)
* Eyeball valve caps
* Powerlite chain wheel and spider
