Bikes. Parts. Chaos.

Got this in the mail the other day: "dude, remember that awesome steamroller from the shipwreck dude; well, it got stolen a couple weeks ago. at least the the creamroller color looks rad, but it still ain't the same as the old boston baked bean frame with the threaded HS bummer dude, george" Bummer indeed.
