1981 Prodyne 26

1 of 9 accounted for Prodyne cruisers. The ONLY chrome 26 accounted for. Frame was NOS before building

First brief history on Prodyne

Prodyne was made by Larry Barker who owned and operated "Larry's precision welding" located a few doors down from JM Cyclery (JMC).  Larry was the guy that built the original JMC frame jigs and welded most of the early frames, he was very influential in the frame design.  If you look at the dropouts of the Prodyne they are the same as JMC along with the seat post mast.

Prodyne was basically a 26" JMC

Ok so here is mine
