Chrome ballooner

 Just some quickie pics of a project that's been sitting around for too long. It's a friend's '85 goose that he traded me for a much sweeter Ridgerunner. These frames are really nothing special but that full chrome thing hits a soft spot on most any bike nut. The down side is that the steerer tube on these bikes is a 21.15 quill. Luckily Harris Cyclery sells a passable quality replacement stem so you aren't stuck with the original mts-100 slingshot and it's matching bars. Prolly not too smart to put drop bars on a bike with a long top tube but it seemed interesting at the moment. Time will tell...still waiting to find a short buddy for this thing.
