On the bottom bracket it says “Day Vid Buck Taw” in gold paint. Serial number stamped into frame is registered has been reported as stolen.

Stickers include “It’s All F*cking Mind Power” and “Tootie F*ckin Frutie” on the down-tube, Total Skull and Stagg Street on the top-tube, and a pink pixel heart on the head-tube. White bottle cage.

Banged up handlebars with white tape covering only the drops, and a BMX-style brake handle for the front brake.

Crank Brothers Eggbeater peddles, with a broken spoke on the left one and rust on both.

What is left of this bike has been recovered. A very helpful Brian G. contacted me and helped make sure I got the frame back.
