Maybe on Thanksgiving but theres no sure way to know unless you go back in time and stop Charlie Sheen from taking his 171st bump of coke. It is a good idea though, try it again next year maybe.

What size TT is yours? I bought this one used which is always a gamble but it's 20.75 which is what I'm most comfortable on.

Kink Human bars, nice size, not too huge 8.5 rise, 28 wide, uncut.

Spot only existed for a month or so sad RIP. My fat ass was too sketched out to tire ride it haha. Ice jibs galore!

Yeah that's what I was thinking when I first saw it. What do you ride mostly?

Looks great! I've always been a fan of the Gypsy frames and the color scheme works well!

I´m really having to think about what parts I want to use on this build. I´m on a budget but with such a nice frame, I feel like I shouldn´t skimp! Gonna take some ideas from the one pictured though.

Got it today. Paint is kind of weird on the top tube, but as far as I can tell it is under the clear coat. Will probably just leave it with the OG paint. Other than that, it's in great shape.

That's what I figured. Never had a trans frame before. Do most people just leave it until it bothers them?

Not sure if I'll leave as is or raw then clearcoat it before I build it up. Opinions welcome.

Yeah I am going to just raw it. I like the look of trans but it doesn't seem very resistant to scratches and rust. I really like the OG stickers though so going to order some new ones from FBM.

It's a rare occasion when I find myself in or around Detroit. How is the riding there? I am thinking about stripping it and trying to paint it trans red w/ Metalcast. I really prefer the trans red over raw. It's just that surface rust is annoying the crap out of me!

trans and clear coat all will get surface rust over time
powdercoated trans will be more resistant to it than spray trans paint

I might have to take it to some places around here and get quotes. Def. want something that is resistant.
