Re: 1983 Profile Racing 24

I aquired the frame and fork about a month ago and built it up about 2 weeks after. The frame is a bit banged up and has a good sized crack in the seatclamp area (hence the 2 clamps). Bored one day I decided to build it up and see how solid it felt. Bike rides excellent and no sign of the crack getting any worse. This thing is so much fun to ride that I just sold my other rider and permanatly replaced it with this one. IMO nothing rides like an OS24.

Mike (guy with 6 cruisers). He was generous enough to offer it to me for near nothing. Super nice guy.

Excellent idea double clamping the cracked seat tube. Even cooler that you did it w/ old school dia compe Mx's.... Nice rider!!!
