2005 Kappa M-20

2005 Kappa M-20

( Exhibitionist Tribute )

This is actually a limited production frame from Kappa. For some resons I've always wanted to own a Kuwahara Exhibitionist ever since the day I discovered such an incredible beast exist, unfortunately there's only a hand full of them ever made it into productions . So when Scott @ Kappa announced that they're going to built a limited run of the Torker/Exhibitionist tribute frame, guess I just can't let this one pass up . It's a shame that the bike co. is no longer around, a frame & fork set is all that I ever bought from them .

You can probably see it in the 2nd picture, the seat is actually an Odyssey 99er .

Re: 2005 Kappa M-20

Falanga, I can't remember what year it is that I bought the frame, but I guess it was about two years ago that I discovered vintagebmx.com and Scott at kappabmx.com announced that he's going to build a limited run of the Torker/Exhibitionist tribute frame in the Retro New School forum and since I'm a Kuwahara fan, so... . Actually this frame was supposed to have looptails but for some reason Scott decided to delete it as I think it might've been too difficult to build by using only one long tube at each side forming from the headtube ~> seatstays ~> chainstays ~> bb ! But still it's one heck of a frame huh ? So if you're interested, I think there is still one more indentical frame left but Scott is asking $700 for it ! I'm still not quite done with the bike yet cause I plan to run Skyway wheels one day but that won't be anytime soon if it wasn't for the lack of interest lately .

Re: 2005 Kappa M-20

Nope, there are bmx cranks alright ! Infact it's an old set of Shimano EXAGE ACTION aluminium bmx cranks found in my lbs . I don't have much info about the cranks nor do I've much choice either as finding anything good in this part of the world is a real pain in the @$$, so I've got to settle for what I got at that time .

Re: 2005 Kappa M-20

Holy crap!!  I'm seeing this thing for the first time......and I've been on this site for 8 months now!  Wow......that bike is sick.  Kudos.  Retro looks you can actually ride without worrying about busting it in half.  Sweet.  Kappa is VERY nice stuff.
