An old guy's ride!

I'm 44 years old; I was a racer in the 80s and got back into BMX about a year-and-a-half ago. I wanted to get back on the track and bought a race 24" bike, but found that my work and life schedule was not compatible with my local track times. So I sold it and bought a street 24" bike. I rode that a lot, but ultimately decided I wanted a 20" bike. So I sold it and bought the start of what appears below. After a month or so of wheeling and dealing for parts, I finally feel comfortable enough posting my ride here. This is a budget build but I'm a huge Sunday fan, so there's lots of Sunday stuff. Lemme know what you think!

Nice! Looks clean! How you like the lean back post?

I'm 6'3, so I dig it. I'll like it more when I get rid of that chunky Premium railed seat and replace it with a lower-profile pivotal.

Yeah, as my skills started coming back I was getting frustrated with how... cumbersome the 24" was.
