Another $25 Mountain Bike Thread..

I didn't really need another bike...

But for $25 it was kinda hard to pass up.

Its a Parkpre Pro 825. I'm not sure of the year, but 1995(give or take a couple of years) sounds good to me. This bike has lived a rough life, but there is potential. Its a steel frame with some sort of 'titanium' finish.

I think it originally had a suspension fork.

The rear shifter was non functional when I went to look at the bike. I flushed it with WD40 and compressed air. Works great now. It looks like someone replaced the rear derailleur cable recently, probably trying to fix the shifting issue. These are nice shifters, but they're pretty beat up.

It's a 19" frame. Small for me, but my son will fit it in the next couple of years.
