1989 Bully Bashguard

Bashguard Goodness!

Picked this up yesterday. The guy had a CL ad months ago and I had written him but he wouldn't come off the price any. Ad went away and I figured the bike had too. I went to GOODS BMX here in Portland and saw Shad's Bully and it got me thinking about that bike again. I searched my sent mail and found our emails. Shot him a realistic offer and he took it.

Re: 1989 Bully Bashguard

Thanks! This frame is looking Better and Better the more I am working on it. The bars are the definition of toasty. They will get replaced with some Forklifters I have. The 48s look SO much better after some attention. In this pic they look so bad. I will update here soon. Here are a few more photos:

Re: 1989 Bully Bashguard

I have had a couple projects come along since I picked this up. I like this bike more and more every time I look at it. I thought I would share a few updated pics. I cleaned up the outward facing side of both wheel's spokes. Next time I get a sunny day I wil sit down and do the insides. The white seat is gone replaced with a black one. The Fusion stem was swapped for a DK from Shad4130. GT tires off a old Predator that I found at a yard sale. Temporary Redline Porklifters (Fat forklifters) are on it. I would like to find some black Peregrine QII bars for it. Going to pick up a replacement axel tomorrow. Should come together pretty quick after that. Anyways here is a temp mock up series of pics:

Re: 1989 Bully Bashguard

I lost my bike same color etc in Bend Oregon ages ago. Main difference I remember is that mine had Flight 180s cranks.

There was a guy with an olive green one I tried to buy and replace it with. Was given to him by Osborn after a ramp ride. Wish I would have followed through and bought it. smile
