1998 Powerlite P19
1998 Powerlite P19
Seven-year-old son's bike
This thing was a little rough but complete and all original when we bought it locally for 25 bucks.
The frame got an oxylic-acid bath after disassembly. The original black Powercurve bars had rust at the clamp area, so we replaced them with these polished minis. We cleaned and regreased all the bearings, threw on a new chain and some other little goodies, and ended up with a bike that tips the scales at just 24.5 lbs (with 20x1.75" wheels and tires). Here's the skinny:
'98 Powerlite P-19 frame -- chrome-plated, Hi-tensile steel -- 19.5" top tube
'98 Powerlite P-19 fork -- lightwieght, 1-1/8" threadless chromoly

Powerlite alloy Powercurve "mini" bars -- polished
Tektro brake lever assembly -- original red mount, polished lever
Original Powerlite brake cable
Original Tektro rear V-brake -- polished
'98 Powerlite alloy, micro-adjust seat post -- polished

'98 Powerlite seat -- pretty good shape, a little rough in the rear
FMF alloy 3-pc crank (160mm) w/Dan's Comp sealed American BB
Sugino 41t chain ring -- polished (new chromoly chain ring bolts)
New chain from Wal-Mart
