Some advice and a lot of first-hand anecdotes and observations from someone who accidentally had a career in the bike business.

Truth in labeling
The wear pattern on this frame decal, combined with the overall condition of the bike -- it has been ridden savagely, maintained badly and, oh by the way, backed over by a car -- inspired me to make a few additions to it.
THERE we go.
Everything I did was easily reversible, unlike most of what the rider, his last mechanic and a careless family member have done. Parts are on order. I can pass the time until they arrive cleaning off the coating of either 90 weight or chainsaw bar oil on the entire bike.
