I got a free Mongoose road bike today, with a flip flop, open/fixie hub. So I’m swapping the “good” parts onto this old Raleigh frame I had stashed away that was also free!

Needs some work still. I still need to hog out the front forks. The original axel was 1/4 not 3/8s I think. Then I need to get a seat post as the one on the Mongoose was too think, get a chain, and lube the crank, and headset.

Oh and some pics of the frame the day I got it. A few years ago my neighbor just trew it out on his front sidewalk for some one to pick up.
