1981 Quicksilver Type 1b

Highly sought after Australian BMX brand

This is probably my favourite bike as it reminds me so much of my childhood. Always wanted a Quicksilver BITD and after many years I finally got one. All parts NOS where possible otherwise restored

Re: 1981 Quicksilver Type 1b

Thanks guys, I can't take all of the credit for this one. Bought it fairly close to done. I added the wheels and tyres, seat, chain and polished the brakes a bit- that's all. The guy I bought it off had done a really nice job. I snapped it up as soon as I saw it advertised
