1978 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

Cool Ride

I just finished this bike , I hope you all like it ! This frame was bent and had a small crack by rear dropout to my surprise when I received it . It was all hidden by a fresh powder coat so I did not know until I took it to Rex ... He put it on a frame jig and straightened it out , repaired the crack as well .  We suspect that this frame was in a car accident on the freeway ... vehicle got rear ended with this bike in the back of vehicle . This story is not confirmed yet .  So she is straight now and rides great !   "Life after Death"   thats this bike .  You got to keep rolling .
