Original color was green. Just needs a front inner tube and rear brake. Has Eastern Hawk Forks, Primo Cranks and Rear Wheel... Front Wheel and Stem is Hoffman... Animal bars... Something for me and son to tinker with.

Be careful with those hollowbites. When they snap, they’ll take half off your leg off.

Bummer we were supposed to meet after dinner and he sends me a message someone offered him $140! He was giving it to me originally for only $70 sad

Ahhh sheeit. If I told someone I'd meet them at a certain time and already said they could have it for for a certain price. Then that's done. It doesn't matter even if someone then offered me $1000.

Yea I’m the same way. Too bad not everyone is. Especially on CraigsList and I guess these OfferUp and LetGo sites too. No matter how good reviews they get... I understand though. He’s got kids to feed too, so no real biggie.

Not 100% a reaper either, so maybe it was a blessing in disguise.

Eastern used those same cut outs on a handful of their stock bikes. First one that comes to mind is the Eastern Element. In later years, they even began using them on their beginner bikes that are Hi-Tensil steel.

Only way to know what it is for sure is the serial #
