1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

This is a very rare find for sure. The quality of welds is awesome & is very similar to my SE & Reynolds Quadangles.

Take a look at the rear drop outs, the seat post mast is 25.4mm. This is not how my SE Quadangles are but is very similar in most areas. This Kwadangle is Chromoly, made in USA with awesome welds & craftsmanship throughout. I get into rare finds, prototypes or one off builds. I'd rather stand out than blend in or have one that noone else has smile

Re: 1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

Your kiddin right, it looks exactly like a Quadangle. I know of no other Company that made this frame. I searched on the museum & the year is what I came up with.

What do you think it is?

Re: 1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

I agree it's definately not a SE quad, couldn't tell you what it is......But the drop outs are wrong
Would nice to find out though exactly what it is........Hope you didn't pay big money for it
I know quads aren't cheap

Re: 1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

Its more then likely a Mexican made Steel copy. A few popped up a few months ago on ebay  Both sold for under $150 f/f 

Dead giveaway?

Looptail rear with a Reynolds front..no such animal exists.

BTW, Someone here on the museum has a steel PK copy

Re: 1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

I had my doubts also but knew I wanted it. So I posted & figured someone would lmk.
I scored it cheap enough as it is & the welds/quality is there. When I scored it I knew it was probably 1 of a kind?
Hey at least I have an almost Old School Looptail Quad.

I know my 85 is the real deal even though its a mismatched set from SE with Reynolds 84 parts combined with 85 SE parts? 85 is when SE started back with continuing the rear upper wheel stays past the seat post mast, connecting to the top tube.

This is my 85 SE Quadangle Frestyler just after I bead blasted it along with a TS & other parts. Standing Gear are not correct year I'm aware. They are off my SE Freestyle Master I just threw them on until I scored 1ST gen  Standing Gear.

edit: I scored a few sets of Standing Gear forks finally(over the months) & am ready to assemble a few more rides big_smile


Thanks for all your help. This will be a great "name It" Thread later tonight. cool

Not necessarily

Early 85 Reynold models had the seat stays connected to the seat tube,mid 85 was the change back to the tubes being connected to the top tube.


What this means is that you can have 2 85 Quads with entirely different geometry.

Re: 1982 Quadangle Kwadangle

Ahh Yes, It makes more sense to me when you put it like that. Thats what it was- there was only a short period that the 85 Quad Freestyler was made with the seat stays conected to seat tube.

Ok I got it now, I was told that by some old guy out in Cali that worked for SE "Sal" & then you a mnth ago?
I have brain damage & I get things all twisted if I don't write it down, right then.sad
But thanks for clearing that up for me. smile
