I have a bad pic of the serial number, but have decided to pass on it anyhow. We (my kid & I) have been picking up parts here and there to build. Came across this in the process. It is really clean looking, but the unknown factor scares me away. ... more »

Thanks, not sure if we should chance it. It does have animal bars, 3 piece crank, but no clue about frame and forks.
