1982 Powerlite

Chrome frame and GT fork I've had since the 80's, maybe early 90's.

I've had this one that I got from a neighbor kid a long time in my mom and dad's garage, and then for years in my own basement. Just got around to cleaning it up earlier this year. It was kind of rusty and the only sticker on it was the SR one on the seat tube. I've since replaced that because it was so faded it was almost non-readable, pretty much just a silver sticker. The down tube and fork stickers are from a couple years later, I just really like them better so I put them on here. I wasn't sure of the year totally, but of all the ones up here, the 83's-85's all have then rings around the top and bottom of the head tube where the bearing cups go, the 81's and earlier have the gusset of course, and the 82's all look like mine. The bars in the pic are later ones, but I think they'll look good on here for the time being when I build it up, which I'm planning to in a little while.
