1981 Prodyne 26

The best 26"er ever!!!!

i think these were made in the early 80's, pre 82 i assume. The gearing is 46-21, the campy crankset I got already had the 46T, trying to find a smaller gold campy chainring has been tough to say the least. so this will have to work, I actually like the way it feels with this gearing, a little tall, but it has really nice torque
heres the build list
*  26 Prodyne frame, original paint and decals 26
* chrome CW fork, original finish
* Chrome Prodyne cruiser bars
* Gold inverted square corner tuf-neck
* Zeronine Cruiser # plate
* Oakley 3's
* D/C 890 brakeset with Koolstop pads
* Tange headset
* D/C 2 peice seatclamp
* Tange cromo fluted post
* Suede Unicantor saddle
* Araya 7X's
* Campagnolo hubs
* Campagnolo Cranks with 46T
* Campagnolo Pedals
* Torker sealed bottom bracket
* Izumi chain
* Suntour Freewheel 21T
* Comp 3 tires, fat-skinny combo

Truly a museum piece.
