1982 Norco Spitfire Turbo

Here is the bike I loved and still love from my Youth.  I nick named it "Spitty" back then and even though I broke my left knee on this bike back in '83, it will always be my coolest ride. 

I restored this a few years back and have been meaning to share it.  I wanted to get it as close as I could to stock without paying a fortune. The blue tires were one of the hardest parts to source.  Bike is good to go and was ridden for a few years by my nephew.  Still a head turner.

That is very cool man. This was the exact model that I did my first Rock-Walk on. I will never forget that Norco, wish I still had it.

Looks brand new,  Great looking Norco and I remember these bikes well. I rode a 1979 Norco Duster as my first BMX.  Stoked to see one so nice.

gorgeous job! Cleanest Norco I have seen. One of the most underrated cool bikes in my opinion. Along with the ross piranha.
