Re: 1981 Cyclops Burner

I had an Amaroo as a kid.
None of this fancy cromoly stuff - every single piece was good old Aussie BHP steel! lol
I hated it when I was younger, isn't it funny how nostalgia paints the past with gold..

You gotta resurrect this bike bro, nowhere near enough of them have survived.

Re: 1981 Cyclops Burner

You won't find decals, you'll have to make them.
I would recommend getting some clear digital photos of them on the frame, then trying to remove them with citrus cleaner. At 30 years old though, they might shatter as you try to peel them.
Good luck!

Re: 1981 Cyclops Burner

How's the build coming along?
I just stumbled upon an Amaroo after about two years of half-arsed searching, it should arrive next week big_smile
Can't wait.
