  1. Jeff, that's the "prototype/unique" one I was referring too......That's actually the only one I've ever come across like that also, and its really cool too!.....that looks like the same style/one Joe posted awhile ago.
  2. Gil, I've only come across one type. (Except for factory prototype unique 1st one)...They were available on the late '80 frame, and the '81-'83 model. (bottom pic is what I believe to be a late '80 frame, 1st time for chain tensioners on production bikes) Claude
  3. My prayers are with Jason. My family is battling a similar situation. It puts things in perspective, I tell you that. Claude
  4. Does anyone know what era the stem called a "slimline" was??? Like this? http://bmxmuseum.com/forsale/117652 PS- I went ahead and bought it, Im down to the last few pieces to this puzzle....noticed a few of our members previous 70's bikes with Slimline stems (Larock/Mark Mc).........hope Im on the right track! Claude
  5. Thanks for the links and suggestions guys, I have a better idea of what I'm looking for, era correct wise!
  6. Awesome info guys, much appreciated! I was just searching ebay under "chrome seatpost" and a bunch of older Schwinn posts came up, but Im guessing because they say for Schwinn Krate bikes/Sting Rays, etc. that would mean 13/16?? They are all the kind that shrink down to 5/8 into the seatguts I noticed...I definitely need 7/8th...... Is this most likely 13/16? http://www.ebay.com/itm/SCHWINN-STINGRAY-KRATE-FASTBACK-MANTA-RAY-14-CHROME-SEAT-POST-CHIK-FAIR-LADY/131128381290?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.RVI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20635%26meid%3D5215863848263548212%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D9200%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D171254976997
  7. I've started collecting parts for my next bike. It will be a 76-77 model, and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on era correct parts I'm interested in. I'll be the first to admit this era is uncharted territory for me, and I'm stumped on a few parts so any help would be appreciated! I would like to keep everything 76-78 if possible... Grips- I like the Oakley 1's, were they available in this era? If not, what was the preferred grips of the day? Handlebars- Who besides Cook Bros made nickel plated STRAIGHT crossbar handlebars? (no v-bars) Stem- I really like the chrome/silver Cebe stems, but am unsure of their era. Seatpost- Did anyone make a straight nickel plated post at this time? (Redline?) If not, who made a chrome one? Chain- What was the norm in chains and were they black or nickel? Pretty sure I have everything else covered. Thanks in advance for any help! Claude
  8. That is the later plate(with eagle @ bottom, and bends @ bars), it was available Im sure '81-'83, and possibly earlier....I will see what I can find... Claude
  9. Thats just wrong on so many levels........
  10. Thanks everyone......One thing I wanted to mention, the Aerospeeds are 185's. Is that size pretty common to pop up? I remember seeing a bunch of 180's, and a few 175's over the years, but I dont remember seeing 185's though, just wondering, any info is appreciated. Claude
  11. Thanks guys. I just learned two important things on my first ride: 1) I am soooo out of shape, DAMN IT! 2) I've never owned Hutch pedals, if I slip, my shins are toast!
