1982 Skyway T/A

1982 Skyway T/A

Japan made KB serial 1982 TA F&F all original chrome.

I recently took my other 82 apart to use all the black parts on my new Panda then built this one up with a blue on chrome color scheme.
The chrome is all original, frame decals are repro but I left the old faded fork stickers on for nostalgia. Most of the parts are clean survivor except the plate, chain ring, pedals & grips were NOS.
Some of my favorite parts are the original non pinch Flight cranks, Redline stamped Pro size V bars and the Suntour sealed hubs in Pro Class rims.
In the future I'd like to upgrade the headset to a blue ano Tange or Hatta.

Very cool bike. I like the Pro class on there instead of Skyway Tuffs as well.

Thank you, it actually has black 1st gen graphites on it dated 10/26/82 my exact 12th B-day so I couldn't resist putting them on this build. Here it is with the rest of the herd which is still growing & changing, once you get that killer survivor built the Skyway addiction will begin big_smile

Nice herd. All that red, white, blue and chrome makes me proud to be an American.  Nice stable of skyways.


Looking for: black kashi aero suede. Hutch 2 in 1 stemlock.
