I bought it in 100% original condition even down to the inner-tubes. I immediately tore it down, polished the paint, and built it back up on a tight budget, mostly with parts laying around or purchased second hand. I have less than $200 in this bike, but it gets the most miles. I did all the work myself including hand building the wheels. I may swap it to a Advent 1x10 in the future, but I do love how it rides as is. It's my classic with a touch of modern comfort. - @dantheman12_
