  1. Bike was purchased new at Kar City Big Wheels in Cedar Rapids Iowa
  2. Scored this today...straight out of the barn since 81...best 25$ score ever...
  3. That frame had a Kar City Big Wheels bike shop head tube decal that I never ever seen before...Kar City was a famous bmx bIke shop I raced for back In the day..I don't know why that decal was on it ..but pure speculation would suggest it may have originated here in Iowa...would like to know the story...who actually built prodyne and how many were built..did they build 20s and 24s also...
  4. The stuff is old jmc tubing and parts...I bought a couple framesets in original boxes about 10 years ago from that guy ...I believe he had a couple fixtures also...Also Jim knows about the parts etc this guy is selling..
  5. Lets see...Hans Nissen..Mark Melton...Lawan Changa Cunningham...Rick Moliterno..Mark Driscoll..Tom Steiner...Dave Nuccio..Trent Parsons...
  6. Not buying a set of AP bars in 02 cause I thought 200$ was a little high............god Damn...
  7. These are Maximum Pro cruiser bars 29 x 6 ...og decals...
  8. Cool...I have a nice set of maximum bars...they are either cruiser or standard height but are 28 wide ..still have the original decals...I'll post a pic when I get home...
  9. I know of 4 of 5 powder shops and none chemically strip anything...why would you chemically strip something that is applied with heat...you don't get the metal as hot as it gets when they powdered or welded it for that matter...I've been in the fab business for 18 years...when we repair chassis we don't sand the powder off...we burn it...has no effect on the molecules in the metal if anything it tightens them up...most powder is 3 to 4 mill thick...then paint over it with another 3 or 4 of paint ....good luck with that...I'd love to see a powdered bike frame painted over...since its been done so many times...let see some pics...
  10. Most places put it an oven and burn it off...I couldn't imagine painting over powder...you wouldn't even see the welds...jmo
  11. Just take a oxy acetalene torch and burn it off..you don't even need to get it cherry red..just move the torch in a consistent motion back and forth and the powder will fly off like dust...done it several times...works awsome..
  12. 563 564 2507....text or call...
