1980 Gary Littlejohn Pit

Frame was repaired by Joe Buffardi,it was tweaked out pretty bad. The fork was in good shape. He worked his magic and was able to keep the original finish. Joe was kind enough to sell it to me before the June show. I wanted to build something like the shot of the chimp and the police officer. I think I came close to it. The hardest part of this build was getting the 12 gauge spokes cut, I finally found a shop and had them cut some old spokes. I really like the way the wheelset came out. I went with a Bendix red band and Schwinn hub up front, Cheng Shin in front and a Uniroyal Nobby in the rear . Both tires are 2.125. Chain ring is a Three Arrows with Schwinn cranks and pedals. I hope you guys dig it.
