1980 Sears Constrictor

Project bike for recreating my childhood bmx

Frame as found on online ad. This project bike will be for recreating a Macleod's Hardware Store (Canadian), Hiawatha brand bmx that my mother bought for me around 1983. I still have the original wheels from that bike. More posts to follow...
 
Sept 2014 update - Frame is painted and cranks cleaned up and repacked bearings. Paint was very close to original color.
