1978 Powerlite 3 Bar 26

RESTORED FROM WHITE TO SHOWROOM CHROME BEAUTY

I found this at a local bike swap. Paid $300.00. Stripped and chromed. Added new comp tires, DT spokes, brass nipples, blue anodized valve caps, 22.2 chrome seatpost, ACS blue seat clamp, blue diamond stich padded saddle, brown Dia-compe cable, chrome Tioga headset, Blue anodized Dia-comp MX lever, MKS Blue anodized pedals, Bultaco motorcycle MX bars, Reproduction Powerlite decals, and Flite checkered pads. The rest of the components were there and just needed a good cleaning, and some brazing on the frame, where it looks like they tried to run a multispeed, given the holes drilled into the frame. A big thanks goes out to the Tucson's 4th AVE. bike swap, the crew at O.B.S., Bicas, NuChrome, and of course Ebay. A very fun ride.
