2003 Ironhorse Lunar

2003 Ironhorse Lunar

Alexander's First Restoration!!!!

My son Alexander saw this frame in white with blue decals on eBay and liked the bottom frame tube design. Although originally designed for BMX racing we decided to convert it to a flatland bike. Since replacement decals would be virtually impossible to find we decided to use masking tape and pattern over the existing ones. Using Dan's Compe and eBay we pieced this rare beauty together. Now he has a heck of a daily rider!

Thanks for the compliment and question. Alex just started stripping the paint off a 2000 KHE Lagger. Plans on restoring it in charcoal gray with neon yellow parts.

(If you have two Pegs on only one side, you are a Terrible person..)

Looking for `90 GT Mach One decal set, `90 Stamped GT Mach One Fork, GT race Stem

The forks came with V-Brake mounts. Don't know why since the frame has U-Brake mounts. It originally was designed for racing and not flatland. Perhaps that's why? In any case, the V-Brakes are awesome. All I had to do was bend the noodle. The stopping power is incredible. You just have to tap them and your over the bars. Wish I could say the same about some of my bikes U-Brakes. smile

We started off with a 25T sprocket but the chain was rubbing the back brakes, so we switched up to a 33T. Runs fine! But then again this isn't built for speed anymore!

Re: 2003 Ironhorse Lunar

I love the look of this bike, but I don't think there was an ironhorse, U-brake, or even threadless bikes in 1993.  Wonder what year this would really be... I'd guess Would have to be 95 or later because of the brand, but I'd guess it's a 99 or later since it's u-brake and threadless.


Stuff I want: 2000 24" DB Reactor Team frame ,  Voxom and Enigma stuff. Alliant / Radix stem and stuff.  JW and Stiffys stuff.  Cool late mid-school cruiser parts.

You got me bro. The Museum confirmed the serial # year to '93 when I posted it. A similar Ironhorse in the Museum is dated as a '95 and has a threadless. Perhaps they were ahead of their time! In any case thanks for liking it. My son apprecites it. smile

Yeah. This one was white and glowed in the dark as well. Pretty sweet. But my son wanted black with blue so I had to paint it. hmm

Looks like the Museum updated the year on this. Appears to be a 2003 and not a 1993. So that would clarify it. cool
