1982 National Pro Long
Unrestored Survivor in Storage Since 1984!
Hey all. I was a huge National Pro fan BITD. I wanted something different than the Redlines, etc. that everyone else was riding, and I loved the clean, sleek, gimmick-free lines of the National Pro.
This is the bike that I raced as a 15X and 16X in So. Cal. in 82 and 83. I won quite a few races on this bike, it was my pride and joy.
I quit before I turned 17, and when I quit, I quit completely! Put the bike away and never looked back. The parts are all original (in the pics it has a new front tire, to make it rideable, but I have the old one still. The sidewall is very worn on the original).
So this bike has been in indoor storage continuously since 1983. I thought if there are any NP fans here, you might be interested in taking a look.
