1986 General Hustler

The 1986 General Hustler was the first real BMX bike I ever had. I recently rebuilt this one using spare parts.

I started sourcing parts to rebuild this bike and then decided that wasn't really important to me. With that freedom, I threw this thing together with an assortment of random parts—which included converting it to 1 1/8" threadless.
