1998 FBM Angel of Death

Brought back to life from the scrap heap.

This frame was in fire that tore through the original FBM warehouse. It changed hands a few times until it was obtained by a friend of mine. He tried to shorten and reshape the dropouts with a hacksaw. It didn't turn out so well, the frame wound up being thrown into a trash can. Being the scavenger that I am I took it out of the trash can, fixed the dropouts shot it flat black and built it up with parts I had laying around. After a while of having it I wound up giving it to a friend of mine that couldn't afford to build a bike after his was stolen. It's in his care to this day.
