I had a DP firebird back in 85, looked exactly the same as that with the DP cutout in the rear. But what do you mean by the three hole? Cheers John

Re: 1986 DP Racing Firebird Freestyler

On a standard GL the rear cable routes through the frame to below the caliper on my frame the cable can route to either above or below the caliper

Hence Three Hole

The way the cable is routed on my bike is the same as the GL prototype I had as a kid back in 1984

Awsome:cool:


Scooters are just skateboards with handlebars... Surely that's cheating?

WOW... a perfect DP build. I love the wheel set, cranks and bars. Glad to see the bike getting built with some top notch parts of the time period.

You had me at "three holes."
