Always loved Kuwahara's, since the early 80s, never owned one. Came across one in need of some love on FB marketplace for $125. Lot's of blue rattle can paint to deal with. Luckily I was able to clean up the chrome frame & Haro handlebar to a level I'm happy with, fork was too far gone, could have been painted I guess but wanted chrome so found the most affordable option on-line, added different period fork decals. Still waiting on gum-wall red tires, red chainring and a red seatpost but it's very ridable, latest picture doesn't show fork decals yet but they look great.
I noticed a Makai on this forum which members guessed around 1994. My serial# is RMCD600594, maybe a 94'? Does anyone know? Curious if the frame would be chromoly, pretty heavy at 5.75lbs. I'm not real worried about the weight, I plan to use this at the ripe old age of 52 for some easy cruisin'
I realize this 90s model is not as sought after as the 80s models but I'm curious of the value (my costs will be just under $400 CAD), doubt I'd ever sell it, too much elbow grease already (LOL). Has Diamond Back branded pedals which took a lot of work to restore.
Anyway, I'm brand new to this forum and I'm mostly into road & mountain bikes but BMX was kind of a first love, colored snake belly tires and Elina plastic saddle in the early 80s on my budget BMX...
