1999 Powerlite P51 Mustang XL

"Blue Bullet" -- One of the Last Ones


The P-51 went from chromoly (early 90s) to Aluminum (mid- to late-90s) back to chromoly (1999, 2000).  This Mustang with Fastback seatstays, I think, represents the best design of the three, and one of the last examples of a USA-made frame from one of the old brands.  Check out that race-ready bottom bracket height!  For my son.  He deserves cool, high-quality stuff.  Oh yeah -- building a bike named for the WWII fighter plane that inspired the Ford Mustang was a must!
