1985 Skyway Street Beat

1985 Skyway Street Beat

Freshly powdered Skyway Streetbeat...

Okay. This was one of Ginny's raw frame sets which I originally intended to have powder coated orange. Only problem was, I really wanted to use T/A decals on my build and they wouldn't have looked very good on an orange bike so I went for white and built an orange GT Performer instead. I have owned a couple of Beats but I never liked the decals and I believed that Skyway should have used T/A style decals and designed a new seatmast decal for the Streetbeat. I didn't want to use a T/A decal on the seat mast so I used a a Skyway headtube decal instead (am I the first guy on here to do that?)                                                                                                                                         The bike was built using the following parts. Skyway E-Z bars with grey AME's and a polished Skyway stem (needs decal). Gray tuff 2's with white Panaracers. Dia-Compe Nippons. Sakae Silver Streak cranks with Suntour chainring and KKT AMX pedals. Dominator seat. I have a white Tuff sprocket on it's way so I might try that on the bike to see how it looks...

Re: 1985 Skyway Street Beat

Thanks for the positive comments...  The decals are the ONLY choice for a Beat if you want to use a Skyway Padset (which I need). 

I could really use a NOS Skyway frame pad for this bike if someone has one for sale.  You can't really use a bar pad with E-Z bars can you?

I've got a T/A f+f which is my project for the Spring.  That will need a straight bar pad.

I'm also on the lookout for Torker 280X (keyhole gusset type) to buy or trade.  Any takers???

I DESPERATELY need some DX pedal end caps.  I have three restored sets of DX's which I cannot complete without some replacement end caps.  I'm not worried if they're repops (don't tell Shimano)- as long as they look good...

Love your restoration, work, powdercoat, decals, and amount of thought, love and care put into this. Stellar. Not crazy about the grey color mags, grips or seat, but different.
