1985 Skyway Street Beat

NOS Skyway Streetbeat with Warranty Card Still Attached. I have Spent A Year Sourcing all the Bits for this bike. I wanted to do something other than the standard green and blue or all green.

This is my 1985 Skyway Streetbeat, this bike started out as a long term project in Early in 2009 with the purchase of a set of Green Skyway Tuff Pads. From that point on the Trawl began to try and build a NOS Bike from the 80’s. I know I wanted to do something which gave me fond memories from the past without compromise. There lay the problem. The cost of bits these days is astronomical so I compromised on the Cranks and went for Redline Flights with the Twin pinch Bolts. An original boxed frame, fork combo Sourced. A Nos Streetbeat in green. I didn’t want to go down the build in the green and blue you always see, so the vision began. Almost 1 year of searching for the right bits at the right money and all Nos. This is how it is stacking up so far.
