  1. A few things I’m still gonna change up. But wanted to get it together and see how it looked. Going to swap pedals. Maybe chainring bolts if I can hunt down some era correct ones. And I’m going to find some Swallow tires for those Motomags.
  2. Built this up for our Annual Old School Race Series Bike has to be more than 20 years old, have a quilled stem and an American B.B. I’m tall and wanted something that fit the profile but was long enough for me to ride on the track and be somewhat comfortable. I tried out a 84 RL PL20 First and it was way too short. So I found this frame on here with a cracked brake bridge. Took it to my homie at work at and undisclosed aircraft company (who also manages a BMX team so he knows bikes) who is a master welder. Blammo. Frames ready. Then on went a hodgepodge of old and new parts. Much the same approach I took to building up my 87 sport daily rider. Was going after good smooth riding parts that worked well together. Rides great. I feel like it really just has a super relaxed seat post to get the XL TT length. So it doesn’t feel a ton longer than the shorter models. I’ve talked to a couple people about it and they kinda feel the same thing. Still a long azz bike. And the seat has a beer bottle opener so you KNOW it’s fast as hell. 91 BOSS Prime Time Frame Iron Horse Forks (4130 cromo - they just seemed to fit and were cheap lol) S&M Race Bars. New. Light and comfy. DK Stem (Thanks Mike!) Primo Lever - because it was laying there Pitbull Brake - because they rock Bubble Font Sprocket RL Flights (new) ODI lock on grips as I’m obsesssd with lock on grips Rock Bros pedals - freaking cheap dude and good for the INSERT:CONTENT:ENDnbsp; GT/Alienation wheels - 28 spoke front - yup don’t judge me these wheels were under a bill and are rock solid SE Vee Rubber - That logo just pops SE seat w/bottle opener Lightning + Beer Opener = Speed Peregrine post clamp - I’m a freestyler dudes. Not a racer GT post inverted - well it’s cut and this is the only way you get to enjoy the logo Redline B.B. repop Decals (Except Headtube Badge and Seat Tube Decal, those are OG i believe) OG Haro Pad - again this was laying there. I need a black BOSS pad for it two Cycle Michael # Plate from last year

  5. 1987 Haro Team Sport Frame is OG Finish and decals and I acquired it about 4 years ago as a little orphan frame. Through a long series of trades, things popping up, and a few pals hooking me up with parts, i finally got it rounded out this year. Some highlights: The Peregrine cranks The UKAI HP's (I had one, the other I pieced together from NOS hub and separate wheel) Bars: I had to repaint the bars, they were aftermarket 87 blue bars Decals: Bars and fork are repop Tires: New Haro HPF's, ride killer, look the part Pedals: PDMX15's Levers: Tech 7's polished out Chain: NOS Izumi not really much else to say. she came out great and rides like a dream.
  6. the freestyle thread is such a lonely thread....... lol
  7. i think i'm going to have to throw a little freestyle action in the mix for BOTY when it opens up. i have one or two i finished up this year laying about
  8. So I may say to heck with it and just embrace the Yellow. also snagged an old set of yellow octopus grips, maybe Dorcys? ill have to look. Kinda feeling like i need a blue ano seat post now.
  9. Ran across some wheels this weekend. Was looking for something with a drum brake. But these popped up for a steal locally. Thought I would try them on. As it sits. I’m not much feeling the yellow mags with the blue bars. Which I thought I would like. We will see. I’ve got a few other things lined up. Think I’ll mock it up and see how it looks.
  10. Time to blow it apart and get to cleaning. I’m torn on the fork. My “survivor” instincts say to leave it. But the kid side in my says redo it in Matte Black as the chrome is pretty dang rough.
  11. Thanks everybody. I’m not gonna lie. I love a 3 piece and they sure make a bike look nice. But this felt right. Lol

  13. Went out to the track last night and next door is a skate park. I was slipping and sliding all over due to a little drizzle. But it was still nice to get out and knock the dust off this one. This bike plagued my nightmares for a few years. Got it from a buddy as a blank frame and then waited for some clean forks to pop up. Which never really happened. So! I nabbed up another chrome frame set, kept the fork and sold the other frame which wasn’t in as nice condition. And here it is. Kept it pretty simple. OPC. No gyro. Etc. super clean look.
  14. Thanks everybody. I’m very happy to have it and get away from my normal builds. Been geeking out on a lot of the older 70’s era bikes lately. I was pretty stoked about the forks - feel like they take the rig up a notch. The chrome on the frame isn’t great. But I’m keeping it OG. The fork is in a bit worse shape though. I need to figure out how I’m going to approach that.
