1979 S&S Newport 26

Long Beach Rider

This is my weekend rider.  I grew up in Newport Beach and I used to see these around when I was young.  I found the frame and built it over a few months.  Everything was purchased piece by piece.  Will probably get some different tires, snakebellys when they show up.  Other than that, it’s done.  Rides nice..

Here is what’s on it:

Takagi Cranks
VDC Bars
SR Stem
AME Grips
ARAYA Rims
Dia-Comp Breaks
Suntour Hubs
TNT Seat Clamp
Kenda Tires
BROOKS Sadle
