Nice build, F anyone who cares about what tires you are running. Only suggestion is change the redline stem and your seatpost clamp is going the wrong way. Bolt should be at the back.

Re: 1980 SE Racing OM Flyer 26

Haha many thanx for feedback guys -

'Octane' - good spotting, I'll change it now, stem was all I had but I hear you, as far as 'builds' go I dont think we ever finish them, its constant upgrade changes, cheers hombre
'trailerpark' - many thanx for comment - yes I hope the OM would approve!
'surferkain' - the chrome was 3 stage - nickel,copper, buffed then chromed

Re: 1980 SE Racing OM Flyer 26

What's wrong with the Brute stem on this build? I think it looks great on there!
