Vista GTX 77 Barn find with unkown BMX

Recommended Posts

well I went out to this barn sale way out in the sticks of the mitten and both bike were hanging on hooks for the past 10-20 years I have never seen or heard of Vista BMX bikes my guess LOW END but this one has some real nice OS parts on it old dc 1000's,some nice rubber,cool gold bars(they have a crazy bend in the cross bar), Any ideas on the F/F like who made it.And the other bike is a "if I dont grab this I could hate my self"grab.All parts are crap but the frame and forks are real crazy almost tear drop tubes any ideas I almost thought TA but theres no way.Any way enjoy the pics.

Yep looks like an Akisu made frame. Some of those parts are ok. Nice tires!

From the Mr. Columbia webpage:
"Vista was a brand started by a group of bicycle dealers in the 1960's. The early bikes were made by Columbia. Later, Vista's were made in Japan."

I had an Akisu frame that is pretty much identical to that chrome one. Yeah, Vista was lower end Columbia stuff, one of my local shops BITD had them.
