Additional Notes

1981 BXC / Prodyne 26”. This frame was originally purchased by Wisconsin BXC brother, Ralph Scanga, in Florida at a bike show Prodyne was set up at in 1981. This was the first introduction to Prodyne which led to Prodyne manufacturing some frames for BXC to label. The frame was raced by Ralph (Madison BXC,) against his brother Mike (Wichita BXC,) on a OM Flyer. One of Ralph’s employees loved the bike so Ralph sold to him and asked if he ever sold to give him first right. Fast forward approx 25 years and the employee reached out he still had the frame and it came back to BXC. This was about 15 years ago. I am undecided on what seat to use and working on a set of early GT bars to replace the temporary bars. I have included some pics of it in action from back in the day.
