Also, Patrick I noticed over at the other site back when you posted your Hustler in the "Museum" you stated that you had the only pair of Hustler forks to ever surface. Wasnt it you that sold me these black forks nos still in the og box? Seen any others surface?

yes, i sold you those forks....

they're expert size forks and the only ones with the hole in the dropouts.  i have some 24's though...and another chrome set that doesn't have the holes.    

 

the forks on my Hustler that i was referring to are pro size (with bigger tubing) and are the only set i've ever seen surface.

Current pics. Put OG finish CBR forks on it. Thought that was fitting.

I love the bars... not sure what it is about those, but they are very appealing.

is there knurling on the bars?  how wide are they?   

i've never seen Hustler bars with knurling before and they look like more sweep than the sets i have.

Jeff did you pick this up from a guy in Michigan?

Sounds about right, I believe the sellers name was Brad. It was listed in the 'for sale' section over on the museum for a couple weeks before I stumbled across it. I was sort of surprised it didn't get snatched up immediately, but than again 'mini stuff' is sort of a niche market. Though I'm not complaining!

I was fortunate enough to purchase the BDP 'acetate' directly from Kenny Parker. It was 'cut' for the sole purpose of being used on tour when Kenny was serving as the 'tour DJ' for BDP. This was around the time the album 'Edutainment' was released in '90-91.
