The test ride definitely exposed the randomness that it tracked down the road. The handlebars were out of alignment, and I didn't check the tire pressure. We struck a deal, my point was that it basically was a parts bike, of which I really didn't want to go that route. You know the deal, the hassle of selling pieces on ebay and locally only to end up with a wheelbarrow full of left over junk that you can't get rid of!
The plan is to do a triage, disassemble and inspect the frame spine and drop the front end inspecting for damage. I'm not much for body work but this is a DIY project. Color matching the paint will be interesting. I'll use a single stage acrylic urethane paint to make things easier on myself. The goal is to make it look decent from ten feet away as it goes by!
