1981 Quicksilver 1b

Original finish. Looking forward to doing some skids.

Had this frame hanging around the shed for ever and am so happy that i put off stripping the original chrome because it has come up pretty good after an acid bath
It's about a 7 out of 10 now, no dents, gouges but a couple of rust areas around the gussets and head tube has lost a small amount of chrome at the edges. Drops are not bad, slight squish and some chain rub. Raided the parts bin- Cycle Pro forks are 1980 and about 7 out of 10. Mongoose headset similar. Tuff II's are good condition, suntour coaster. Bars are scratchy CW copies, grips are worn but original. Nitto stem will get a better clean up. Takagi MX/ sugino. Rat traps coming. White seat had yellowed pretty bad so peroxided the hell out of it, its an 83. Repop tyres are way-off era-look but I like them. Repop decals.
