I've been racing ALL da local state races & Redline cups these days in 36-40 cruiser, & a week or so ago @ Yucca Valley's State race while in staging I look over & see these trippy bike w/ a "lift kit." I end up talking to da kids parents, & well you know what happens next, I make an offer & last night me & John Johnson head out to go pick it up. (da offer being a brand new Intense expert xl race bike :) )

 

Da frame is VERY clean, no cracks, repairs or dents. Stamped Pro Neck, Power-bend bars, Araya 7x's, Suzie sealed hubs, Red Line 175 Flights, Suntour XCII's (no cages :( ) Izumi gold chain, Uni seat, & 2 Flight wheels, a 44 & 42.

 

can anyone help me out w/ decals & some history?, serial # is B1004.

 

here she is, just like da father raced it BITD!

That is too sweet. My serial # was B122......i miss her. :yes:

Also looking for decals. I have a survivor as well.  Looking to clean up.  Leon Philpot lived down the street from me growing up.  His sister used to babysit me.

Condition of when I picked it up.  I am in the process of restoring now.  All the major parts are able to stay.  Got the all the red stuff re-anodized,  Cleaned up the rust, but decided to get re-chromed anyway.  Reconditioned all the bearings.  It will have new seat, grips, chain, brake cable, tires and I am replacing the spokes and nipples.  The decals were not salvageable, so I have repops coming as well as I found repop pads.  I also decided to change the chainring hardware to anodized.  She is going to be beautiful!

Just saw Craig Turner is making a frame set called The Bandolero.

Obvious Bandito influence on the frame drop outs.

I went to the Gary Turner swap meet today and saw one in person.  I like the frame.  The small notched drop out on the forks kind of scare me.  I would like to have one...

TrulyOdd, Thanks.  Picked it up from a childhood friend.  It was in his Dad's rafters for 21 years.  She is all done now.  If you want to check it out, it is listed in my bikes.  I am considering selling it.  All major parts are original restored.
