My former bro-in-law's girlfriend gave this bike to me. She left it out in the rain for I don't know how long. Started getting tickets and she just asked me if I would take it away, so I did. Every bolt on the bike was either frozen and snapped off, or just plain nasty to even touch. I chopped off the rear end and made it into a hard-tail. If I ever do something like this again, I'll probably chop it off behind the shocks and make it a soft-tail. It was fun. Cut and open exhaust, pod filters, a real beastie.
