1981 Apollo Indi 500

Indi 500

Caught sight of this little gem out of the corner of my eye sitting in amongst a heap of bulk rubbish awaiting collection as I was driving past a semi rural property recently. Did a double check as I couldnt beleive my eyes and went back and grabbed it. This has now rekindled a 40yr olds olds childhood obsession, something I had long forgotten but is now destined to be the bain of my dear wifes existence and one which she will never fully understand.
I am now in restoration mode and happy for anyone out there to give me any feedback on this bike? I have tried to search for specifics on the brand which is hard at best. I know through veiwing posts that the frame may be of the Apollo/Kuwahara origin however the serial # does not seem to represent this based on what others have posted?
I would like to thank Zac for helping me out on my journey to BMX heaven once again....I officially have the bug!!

Very cool find! I would just clean and polish if I were you. Unless you can find original decals, I would not remove them to repaint. Has great patina just the way it sits!
