1987 Skyway Street Beat

Harder to find 86 style with 990 mounts!  Mostly NOS!!

The long search is finally over.  This is/was my grail bike, the 87 blue/gray Beat with 990s.
The bike I always wanted and now I have it.  I RULE!!! Tehehe!
Seriously, though, I am super happy to have found this and in NOS.  WOWIEE!!!!!!!!!!
Almost all the parts are original to the bike kit from 87, even the Skyway-branded tires.  The mags have the reflectors still, oh my.
Parts:
These parts are all NOS original to the bike kit, never fully assembled before I did:
* Skyway Street Beat frame & fork
* Skyway EZ Pro Bars
* Skyway freestyle stem
* Skyway branded Kenda tires 20x1.9
* Skyway Tuff2 wheels with reflectors
* Skyway Spinmaster2 (w/ lower cable)
* Tange headset
* Suntour BMX 16t freewheel
* Tracer 43t chainring
* Chainring bolts

* SR Turbox Tubular cranks
* Izumi Nickel/Black chain

* Yamamoto MBS-1000 Sealed BB
* Kalin layback seatpost
* Odyssey RX-2 clamp
* Odyssey RX-3 levers
* Odyssey System 2000fs front brake
* Dia-Compe AD990 rear brake
* A'me bubble font Tri grips

These parts were from another blue/gray Street Beat:
* Skyway branded Viscount seat NOS
* Skyway spider survivor
[b]
[/b]These parts were from an 88 Skyway Street Scene:
* [b]Dia-Compe front cable stamped 87


[/b]These parts were added:
* Skyway upper Spinmaster2 cable
* Skyway 24t axle extenders front/back (powdered "Skyway blue" by C4)
* Hsing-Ta freestyle pedals from 86 Street Styler (powdered "Skyway blue" by C4)

[b]Thanks for looking!

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
