Special shout outs to Lou for the paint, Maxbore for repairing the cracks,  Quiñonesm for the rims, Charlie Brown for building the wheels, loopdreamz for the bars, skirkpat for the cranks, army2 for the pads, Green Griffin 420 for the stem,  and Johnnytr8r for the pedals.

No kidding, I repaired the cracks!
It turned out great, I love white red and blue bikes.


You don't HAVE to build every frame and fork you own... right?

Remember both fork dropouts were about to fall off, and the keyhole was cracked.  Nice to see you're still around, George.  smile. Thanks again.

Re: 1987 Robinson Pro

Beautiful Robinson. Robinson is one of the many underappreciated bikes, along with GT. I like how they still did looptails until '87...that was a dying breed....Looks like Mitt Romney stole the "R" from Robinson big_smile

If I could race an old school class, I'd ask Donnie if I could borrow this bike!  It rides fantastic! cool
