1997 Powerlite P61

In my opinion, one of the best ever made.

P61 frame and fork that i pieced together over about a year. Did a lot of searching to find most of the parts. I had one in high school, and i was needing another one. It’s mostly for looks, so i found a polished one for cruising. I plan on restoring the yellow one to factory specs. 

Parts list so far:
     P61 aluminum frame
     Powerlite chromoly forks
     Powerlite Beasty bars
     Powerlite stem
     FSA headset
