1979 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

California Survivor

Thanks to the help of Ryan, this beauty was acquired from the original owner, a MX racer from bitd. The original owners buddy was friend with the Bassett family and after they had heard about the Star Cruiser coming out soon they both ordered one in a second. His buddy went for chrome and blue and he went for black and gold as you can probably see...
All original paint and finish!
bone stock besides bars and grips
owner had newer pedals and tires installed but had the tires still around so they have been swapped back
bought some KKT Lightnings for it because the Star Cruiser mostly came stock with these BITD and this is how we roll!

You need to take that to the beach at Rostock or Stralsund.  It would be right at home. cool
