1982 Kuwahara 24

1982 Kuwahara 24

This was my bike as a kid, its been in the parents shed for 14 years, unfortunately they live by the coast so the salty air has been a bit rough on the chrome. So, come winter i'll be stripping it back again and re-chroming. the frame itself isn't so bad oxalic acid might just do the trick but the forks and bars are in need.

I blew the drop out open and bent the axle & hub in a down hill pursuit back in 1994 and its been hanging in the garage ever since, so i have had to get the forks stripped and welded, had some stepped washers made up for the key hole drop outs (so i dont bust them open again). 

The serial is T2E1567 which as far i understand suggests that the frame was made in 1982!
