1981 Powerlite 3 Bar 24

I have been wanting to build an oldschool cruiser for sometime now and when this popped up I knew it was my next build! All original finishes throughout. Even went over the top with some Big Cook Bros. Racing Cruiser Bars!
Hope you enjoy!..
Looks like some phil Woods. soo nice! GAry

Re: 1981 Powerlite 3 Bar 24

Such a rad bike. Love this color. Makes me want to build my blue 26".


I handle sales and marketing at True Torch. We have almost 40 years experience fabricating BMX bikes. We do custom builds and repairs but our overhead is not paid via BMX.
Personally, I'm a total Peddlepower and early Powerlite junkie. Always looking for '83 and older
Check out my Peddlepower 26" tribute frame set.
Looking for:
Peddlepower and Powerlite parts. I need 24" & 26" Powerlite forks.
Single red 20" Snake Belly in very good condition
OG vinyl Powerlite pads
