Flash caps for convertible and standard skyway tuffs

I've seen a lot of people seeking or buying different flash caps,kool caps for there skyway tuffs.
I have tried a few and found these the best for skyway tuffs.
They are a two piece machined alloy and washer per side for the front wheel hiding the hub carrier.
Set includes four flanges,two machined sleeves to go over the hub carrier and two washers.

Others use stickers to cover or dont cover at all,others you have to modify the wheel in order to get them over the hub carrier.

These ones fit with ease and look the part too.
Just thought id share cause ive lost count on how many people want good flash caps and these are made to order in the USA
Few examples.

Best avatar. I'm glad you changed in back. smile


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

He dose do colors but are painted not anodized.Last time i spoke to him he said he was looking into possible anodizing.
Some of the colors he can do are very cool with a hardened clear coat which makes them pretty durable.
The gold he dose is a better match to the 80s graphite's as today's ones are more orange but if you were doing gold flash caps onto standard tuffs they would look killer.

All of my bars look Chicago'd, but actually are not.  (maybe a little...)    I have a bunch of 70's Star Wars stuff and tons of vinyl LP's for trade/sale too.

Re: Flash caps for convertible and standard skyway tuffs

I'm running them on my Tuffs. I pmed him (chunkstyle) here
on the museum, and it took a little while for him to respond.
I recommend these, they look great. Installation is a bit  tedious,
but the end result was aesthetically close to the old alloy hubs.

Re: Flash caps for convertible and standard skyway tuffs

I tried getting ahold of Drew (Chunkstyle)
Here is an old resto thread to check out when he was working on them.
Maybe some more feedback on the 5 vs 7 spoke flange for 24's would be cool.
