1991 Dirt Bros.
2016 / 2017 Calendar Build Off Entry
I set out to build a Dirt Bros. tribute from a Skyway frame I found locally. I wanted to add my own touches and pay tribute to the way Vic Murphy had his set up back in the day. The red Skyway, lavender Tuff disc and Bully stem / bars were used in tribute to his bike. All of the parts were sourced here on the Muesum. The frame, fork, bars and stem are the only parts that are refinished. The frame wasn’t the original finish when I got it and the forks were correct but not chrome. Frame / Fork: 1984 Skyway, early 90’s Redline tapered. C4 powder, Chabby did the chrome Decals: Decal set and Bully decals made by Delcals in the UK Handlebars / Stem: Bully Grips: Jive flangeless Headset: Original Tioga bear trap Brake: Odyssey Pittbull, RX-5 lever, Slic cable Rims: Skyway front, Peregrine 48 rear with sealed hub, Shimano freewheel Tires: GT freestyle, 20x1.75 Crank arm: Tioga Disc and Ring: Lavender Tuff Neck, 44t pro Neck, NOS Sugino bolts Pedals: Shimano PDMX-15 Guard: Standard Masterguard with original hardware Seat and post: Shotgun II, Tioga internal braced layback Seat clamp: DK two piece
