Probably stolen but you're safe seeing you had no idea. But still a great price

I see bikes on Craigslist for really cheap prices and if you ask for a parts list, they can only name a few. I saw 1 guy give a bike back to another at the local park. Turns out it was stolen and sold without even any camo job. The guy that bought it ran into the former owner and he paid him what he spent and both went to the police together.

yeah probably wouldn't surprise me if this one was stolen cause it had some dodgy respray on it and it didn't even look like he sanded it at all

Next time cover your brake posts. But you can fix it by sandi g them. Don't know if you're using brakes or not but painted posts instantly make a bike look super ghetto. You're doing a nice job otherwise.

Also rattlecanning a sprocket is an iffy call

If you look closer at the full size pic it looks like he's actually masked the threads up, I'd have probably Mirror polished the sprocket if it was ally or just left it depending on what state it was in.
