1984 Powerlite Freestyle

Another interesting bike that Shad found recently..looks to be original Salmon color..
Story goes it was won at a race here in Oregon, way back when..
Anybody have more info on these? check the dual brake bridege.. and double dropouts.. cool little pegs on forks too.
Update, bike has been sold..guess I could have should have bought it? oops.. GAry

Re: 1984 Powerlite Freestyle

The forks are POWERLITE.... what is probably most rare from that ad is the PRO X... i dont remember seeing one since the 80s, the freestyle bikes were hot for about 3 yrs or so. Most of our freestyle bikes were in those wild colors like the salmon you see and bright blue and a few others. those were 85ish to 88ish
