So last year I bought a pile of parts for $25 off craigslist. Guy said it didnt run and my intention was to resell the parts I could on ebay to make a buck.

I get it home and assess what I have and decide to mock it up to see what it needed. After about 30 minutes I got the engine to start and run fine. Turns out all it needed was gas.

This guy did a number on this roughhouse I'll tell you that much. It needed alot of work and still needs a bit of work.

Keys were gone, no registration. Nothing. Dont worry I took the vin down to the police station and had them run it in case it was stolen. It came back clean.

Aptly named, Roughhouse. Very Happy
Certainly can't argue about the price. Good job on getting it to where it is. A little bit of paint and polish here and there and it'll still be a "Roughhouse", lol.
Enjoy riding it, especially with warmer weather on the way.

I would call that the bargain of the year. I have paid a lot more than that for a nice bicycle frame alone.
