1984 Skyway T/A

1984 Skyway T/A

So badly wanted one of these when I was 13.  Had the pic from BMX Action hanging on my wall.



This is my mostly survivor build with a few NOS parts mixed in.  Waited a long time to find a super clean '84 f/f and this one was worth the wait.  The fact that all the shades of red don't match perfectly is kinda killing me, but pretty happy with the outcome.  Only two bikes left to complete my 10 year tribute to BMX.

I wouldn't sweat the small stuff......the blue parts on my current '84 Traker build don't all match either.

I appreciate the thought, but I have no use for purists!

Glad to see you finally got one, persistence pays off, nice F&F. I think black tan wall tires and a blue seat will ease your red troubles. Nice build.


Always looking for nice / rare SKYWAY bikes, parts & gear.

Thanks Wayne - great advice from the Skyway Pro himself.  Love all your TAs and let me know if you have a nice frame pad available.
