Re: 1988 Skyway Street Beat

cool
These didn't come with pegs from Skyway, though.  One of the few complaints in the BMX PLUS bike test.
They had the Skyway Axle Extenders with the bolt kit to adapt their pegs to the fork holes.

I may have an extra set of the bolts if you can find te black Skyway pegs that'd be sweet!  Or, you can use the ones you have, too. tongue

I anxiously await the finished build! big_smile

Re: 1988 Skyway Street Beat

Just ran across one of these myself with same forks n no pegs. Snagged a black pair of pegs similar to those white ones running around for spinner forks.  Wont use them for a daily rider but,,,,,   Not bad in weight over all i pulled the scale out and under 10lb for fnf and my new chromo skyway bars. Everything else i hv for the build weighs nothing really. Should be able to get into the 24lb to 25lb range easy
