  1. 1981 Om Flyer.....I believe this is the rare 531 Reynolds version due to the fact that the tubes pierce through the bottom bracket and head tube shells???? That's what I was told????
  2. Original chrome Powerlite 3 bar Cruiser 24"
  3. I GUESS THIS WAS A POPULAR FRONT FREESTYLE HUB BITD??? IT CAME ON A SET OF 26" ARAYA 7X's THAT I BOUGHT ON THE BAY.
  4. I HAD TWO SETS OF THESE IN WHITE....SO I DECIDED TO PUT A LITTLE "WOW" IN TO ONE OF THEM.

  6. This is an early, rare, 6 bolt DK stem. The stem is stamped K&G on it...for K&G bikes out of OHIO. I talked to K&G bikes and they told me that BITD, DK would do these stems for them because they were both local companies and worked together. Not sure if it's a MINI??? Came on my First Gen OM that was purchased from K&G back in 1980.
  7. FIRST GEN OM FLYER...ORIGINAL PAINT AND DECALS. Cowboy Cut SE Forks.
  8. So then there need not be ANY NOS stuff that is preserved? All of it is "just parts"? I will never understand that logic.... never. Once a part is installed, it is just another used part..... just a thought.i didnt say thats what i would do. I here what everyone is saying....but a killer NOS part looks even more killer attached to a NOS frame, fork, and wheelset???. I don't think I would ride a bike "regularly" that was rare, and NOS before building...but I guarantee I would build it! What good is holding an NOS Cook Brothers stem in your hand??? It was meant to hold a set of handlebars. NOTHING LOOKS BETTER THAN A MINT, ALL NOS BUILD! Now if you start riding it recklessly...that's an entirely different story. Putting Nos parts through wear and tear is not something I would consider. You really have to look to the classic car community for justification....What would look cooler....A guy pulling in to a lot with a MINT 426 Hemi Cuda or the same guy bringing the car in "pieces" on a trailer???? And we're talking about classic cars that are worth tens of thousands of dollars, not bicycles. What does a "SUPER HIGH END" bike part cost....a thousand bucks??? Or about the same as a months interest on a mortagage??? Life is short guy's when your dead ,that "priceless" part you're saving might be sold at a family garage sale for 5 bucks....Think about it.
