1978 Race Inc. RA-7

Stevie James' 1978 Race Inc. RA-7

My good friend, Stevie James, had this just sitting in his mother's basement... I saw it, and HAD to retro mod it for him... It turned out SUPER-COOL!!! I have had some help in determining the year of this ride from "Oaktown Massive" (thanxxx again bro!!!) Originally we were gonna put it up for sale on the bay, but his ol' lady saw it when I finished it, and claimed it for her own... So, now his girl is the owner of this ULTRA-COOL ride... (probably just as well, she is the only one light enough to ride it) Let me know what you think... PLEASE COMMENT!!!! ThanXXX!!!

sweet ride.  I think it might be earlier than '80.

Cool build dude. Like the gold. It's earlier than 80, probably a 78. If it has serial numbers it's possible it isn't a race inc. Early race inc's didn't have serial numbers i believe.

mwjbmxguy99, You are correct!!! Through further investigation, and some good info from "Oaktown Massive", I have discovered that this is either a 78 or 79... The guy who owns it says there was no serial #... I just figured it had been painted under, not the case... THERE IS NONE!!! ThanXXX for the comment...

I've seen some early Race Inc's ('76 -'77), original anodizing and decals, with #'s on the BB shell.  I don't think Bill Bastian was that organized bitd.
