1981 DG Racer 24

Originally raced by Ken Pliska, then sold to George Tamayo. Now in my hands. This DG has gotton around.

I scored the frame in a trade for a road bike. Then ia a total chance deal I traded for a Torker fork only to find out it was the orignal fork that on the bike when Ken owned it.
The previous owner had it repaired and re-chromed. The work isnt top notch but I figure this frame has been through enough, so I left the finish as I got it.

Fork: Torker
Wheels: Araya 7X
