1984 Kuwahara Exhibitionist
For me, this is the ultimate early 80's freestyler.
Firstly, this is the frame set I always wanted as a kid but could never afford it. Late 2011, this became available and I was lucky to get my hands on it. The chrome and decals are survivor as the original owner had had it hung in his lobby since he stopped using it back 1987. I wanted to go with the 'survivor' look to start with so I can actually ride it without fear of destroying mint or NOS parts. I had all the parts to my vision of how I wanted this to look as a 'survivor', so, before I carry on gathering the parts for a final build later this year, I have put it together so at least I can finally get out on it now.
I have omitted some rare, lovely items from it that will grace it later on the rebuild.
The parts list is as follows:-

Tange MX-2 headset,
Kuwahara stamped bars,
