1981 Nomura 26" cruiser "Darth Vader"

Well here is my Nomura 26" (Darth Vader). This frame was built 3/31/1981 and is the lowest number black anodized frame currently accounted for. I just finished the build and had a chance to take some pictures this past weekend. Hope you guys like it.

Update: now posted in the museum here: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=466290
