Re: 2012 Skyway T/A XL 24

Absolutely love what you've done! Your attention to detail is impeccable! The frame should have come with this brake option in the first place. Looks killer in black too. Nice to see that ol' school flava'! One of the best ones i've seen, I love it! cool

Re: 2012 Skyway T/A XL 24

Thanks for posting the extra pics. I really enjoy the progression of the process of this build. It must be a great feeling to own the results of such an awesome build. Incredible courage on your part to take a new product and take it down to pre paint. and Also, quite ballsy to remove the braking mounts to give it the old school look that this bike truly deserves. I have a chrome one and far less courage! Added to my faves!
Best regards, Jimmy
