  1. Ya, there is a pic floating around of Stu on it using the prototype Shimano DX cranks.
  2. This is correct. Dropouts were stamped and put in a box. He grabbed two from the same box.
  3. PLEASEEEEEEEEEE DO NOT refinish it. Making it shiny is just RUINING IT. If you want something restored, then sell me this one and buy one so you dont RUIN this one.
  4. That frame is in AMAZING original finish with original decals DO NOT ruin it by restoring it. If your kid wants a mint shiny bike, go buy him a new one. PLEASE DO NOT refinish that.
  5. Ok cool. Ya definately 2003-newer ASI China owned SE forks.
  6. Put brand new Duro Comp 3 black/gumwall tires and tubes on it. Changed the lever to a Shimano lever, tuned the hubs and brake caliper, lubed the chain and rode this thing all weekend. GREAT riding bike!!!
  7. Are you serious????? or are you fishing for drama?
  8. What size are they? They appear to be mid 2000's SE reproduction forks. In about 2008ish SE started selling 1" threaded and 1 1/8" threadless forks separate over the counter. Made in China. They had some with the holes in the dropouts and some without.
  9. Not sure how I missed this but GREAT build.
  10. No. I have found zero info on who built these for the few months after VDC stopped. I'd love to know as well.
  11. My wife found this on one of her online clothing sites for sale and surprised me with it. 1980 Redline belt buckle.
  12. VDC made all the Star and GHP frame and forks from 82-mid 85 and these were easy to spot because the serial was a date and sequence number on the rear dropout. In late 85 (for reasons I don't know) GHP went overseas with production. Not sure if it was Taiwan or Japan but the end of the road 85 frames had these Spinner forks instead of the std GHP forks from 83-85 and the seat posts were cheaper overseas stamped posts with a GHP sticker. This frame and fork was raced in NH and Jersey. Original owner said he bought it out of a van from Greg himself at a race in NH. For 1985 the Pro 2 was the XL with 19.5" tt and the Pro 1 was the std pro with an 18.5" top tube. 1985 GHP Long frame 1985 GHP (Spinner) fork Tange headset DK stem Kuwahara Laserlite bars Ame Tri grips (bubble font) Dia Compe Tech 4 lever Dia Compe MX1000 caliper Dia Compe brake pads CYC brake cable Suntour seat post clamp GHP seat post Cycle Pro Shotgun 2 seat and guts Tioga Surefoot 2 pedals Takagi 175mm cranks Tange loose ball bottom bracket Suntour 46t sprocket Sugino spider red chain ring bolts Izumi 3/32 chain Suntour 16t freewheel Suzue sealed hubs Araya 7x rims / 1.75 front 1.5 rear Kenda Comp 3 tires / 20x2.125 and 1.75 GHP / California Lite pads
