    My Dad purchased this bike in 1978 and I rode this thing all over Austin for years. He recently gave it to me and I was wondering if anyone on here could give any insight. I saw some posts somewhere that talked about serial numbers in the 600’s, but the only numbers I can find on the frame is 105. Everything on the bike is original except for the chain, the tires and he painted it black(originally it was a burgundy). He took really good care of the bike; it was never left outside.

    Same thing happened to me. Buddies would always ask "what the hell happened"? My response was always "ran out of talent".

    I recently purchased a 20" Reust Factory frame and fork. I had a chrome '93 back in the day so have been looking for one for several years. I am trying to figure out the year of this one as the serial number isn't the traditional 7 digits. It's shown in one of the pics. Any info/help would be great! Love all the Reusts' on this thread!

    Bicycle Motocross. It was to emulate motocross. As a kid I loved motocross. I had a motorcycle and a bicycle. When I could not ride my motorcycle I rode my bike. I had motorcycle handlebars a tank, fenders with a mud flap and 3 number plates on my bike. I tried to make my bicycle to look like a motocross bike. Like others I would put cards in my spokes and also a balloon to sound like a 4 stroke motorcycle. 1972

    MaGoo, I sure will!! You are soooo right about the speed. I hadn't said anything here but I wiped out hard in turn 2 at practice a couple weeks ago. Riding hard, was too low going into the turn, front tire got in the damp stuff from the rain the day before. My smooth V tires got coated in sandy dirt and the front end washed out up the blacktop berm and I went down hard. Tore up my new helmet and my body. Multiple trips to the chyro to fix my back and a week and a half off from riding. Had to buy another new helmet. Speed was there. Talent was lacking.

    Very cool. Just a helpful hint: your speed returns quicker than your skill level. Take your time. Nothing sucks more than seeing the older bunch get broke off. Tell Jeff that MaGoo says hi.

    Sometimes you have to just swap things around. Changes give it a different attitude compared to before.

    Another great night of racing at Springfield. White puffy clouds in the sky and 70 degrees. Our third race. I got third all three motos and Melissa got fourth. The kicker is that she is now riding her GHP cruiser instead of her 20" Chase and I literally only beat her by inches all three motos. I had to pedal my ass off on the last straight to stay in front of her. She is improving leaps and bounds. The T.O. took a bunch of pics tonight. I'm 934 and she is 933. We are also going to another track about 1.5 hours away to race their opening night tomorrow ( been rained out three weeks in a row). We are both finally adjusting to the new track build and I'm starting to like it. OH and on a total surprising STUNNING note, my wife and I will both be riding wearing jerseys and pants just like these in the pic below starting next week as we have been asked to join and ride for the Ace Bike Shop race team!!! The two head guys from the team told us that we both need to be representing their shop and would we like to join. We were speechless. Ace Bike Shop in Springfield has been in business since 1957 and has always been owned by one family. Ace has also had a very tight relationship with Sprigfield BMX Race Track every year since 1978 through 2021 and counting. The shop even has it's own oldschool BMX collection room with bikes and jerseys from all the years span as well as stacks of photo albums from races from 78 on. GREAT GREAT BMX specific bike shop. Been a great day, guys!! The team manager, Jeff said us being out there racing each other at our age is cool and Ace wants us to be part of the team.

    Here’s one of many threads in cleaning the rust. Search the site for “oxalic acid” or “citrus acid” for other threads on the subject.

    I had an early 80s Schwinn predator 24 inch which I loved! Maybe someone will be able to post an ad from a magazine in 85 to see how the bike was set up from Schwinn. I think it's a cool bike, not high-end but still cool

    Nothing on there would be too difficult to track down. Definitely keep the original parts though. The original parts are much more desirable (and valuable if/when you try to sell). Everything can be cleaned, you don’t need to repaint or re-chrome anything. A light hand polish (after a bath) would get it lookin amazing again. A seat, tires and grips can be easily found to get it complete again. let me look for a link to a thread to help you clean the rust...

    Aquarian Powder coaters right? Don Bradshaw Krystal jammed! She won the 11 and under class at the infamous Weinert mountain Supernationals in 77 Mrs Hill (Liz Torres) in a rare mistake...She won the 12 and over girl's class. When these two raced against each other, it was just as intense as the older experts. According to J.U, Krystal was running the office in the late 90s and was very hot!
