1983 Reynolds Quad

Recommended Posts

Took me a while to find a survivor frame set, too many people are refinishing these days 

No disrespect to people that like shiny bikes, I'm liking the used look for old school 

Anyway got myself a nice F/F to start, never had one of these BITD

Got a bit of a package deal as you can see in this pic 

Only thing I didn't get was the grips on the GT bars

Took a little bit of time to find a nice set of not stuffed with wheels 

Sorry about the toilet pics, doing renos at the same time as building the Quad

Starting to get things together :cool2:

Ended up using the Tuffneck and MSC bars from my PK

It ended up with the GT bars and an early square corner Tuffneck

Got it up and ready for a ride with some repop comp 3

While I was building this I was given an old ladys bike that was beyond help, surprise for me was a perfect DID chain under years of old grease

Cripes... very nice. I like the black chain ring best, meself.

I am going to start the slow process of getting my '81 Quad built back up. 

Quadangle= Alltime Favorite Bike!

That is a beauty. Like the look of the black chainring also.

Was wondering with these if anyone has noticed a difference in the ride or feel of the 531 vs. 4130 Quads. One stiffer or flexible than the other type thing.

Maybe it had been brought up elsewhere but just curious.

I know the loopy Quads are the ones that people lust over but I like the stick tail

This bike is seriously perfect. What a breath of fresh air. Well done. I agree on the Tech 3 lever. Shouldnt be hard to find.

 

It's my understanding that the Reynolds tubing was more rigid than the chromoly tubing. Should ride "stiffer" than a chromoly or aluminum frame, i would think.

Thanks Brian 

Been looking for a lever since August, got to be the hardest colour to find
