1992 Powerlite P51

Craigslist find, built up to be a trail / all-around bike.

Was looking for a midschool bike in chrome to restore. Found this Powerlite on Craigslist--the seller had planned to restore it but ended up selling instead.  Took it apart to the bare frame, cleaned it up, and rebuilt it.  First I went for a cruiser look but didn't love it.  Then I came across an S&M Dirtbike here on the museum that has similar dimensions (73.5 HA and 71 SA) and decided to imitate it as a trail / all-around bike.
