So I found this used old bike in the junk. My experience with bikes was zero, so in order to fix it I had to learn about bikes on youtube and other places. What I understood is that one can basically build a bike from scratch. I saw some websites were you can buy every single piece of a bike and then assemble them all to make a customized one.
When I looked on the frames on some of the new racing or fancy bikes and then compared to my junkie bike I found the frames almost identical in terms of shape. Of course there was a huge difference in terms of the fancy equipments but to me the most important pattern was that the frame was identical.
I asked couple questions here regarding fixing the bike or painting it, and one time I got a response: "are you really going to spend too much money on that junkie bike?". Then I asked myself the question as to what is the difference between a junkie bike and a new fancy one?
I mean if I spend money on new parts AND considering that the frame is identical to fancy bikes, wouldn't that simply make it as valuable as a new fancy bike? Suppose that every year I change a part and at the end I paint it very well, would that still make it a junkie bike?
I am interested in the answer to know if it is really worth it to spend money on it or not. Because if it is worth it, then maybe I can sell it and make money.
Here are pictures for the bike:
