1979 DG Racer

1979 DG Racer (possibly a team frame)? THIS BIKE IS SOLD!

I bought this frame from a member here on the Museum.  I was told it was a 79, so that is what I'm going with.  When I was about 14 (1978) i had a Schwinn Scrambler.  A couple of brothers (one a year older and one two years younger) raced on very LOUD yellow bmx bikes.  They were DG.  I remember the first time I saw one because you could see it from across the race track.  Anyway, these were pretty hard to come by in the late 70's, so I never had one, until now.  Chip Bowers (C4Labs) powder coated the frame DG yellow.  I had him polish and powder the headset, stem, cranks, hubs, and rims translucent blue.  THEY LOOK AWESOME!  As always, I had a great time building this bike.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!
