1985 Skyway Street Beat
1985 Skyway Street Beat - The Purple People Eater
This is a 1985 1st Generation Skyway Street Beat that has the TA Dropout Forks. The Bars are Skyway EZ Pro Bars. The F/F & Bars were obtained from Museum member Streetbeaster. The Paint and stickers are all original to the F/F and Bars. They were in Great Condition for their age so I just built the bike up. I decided to go with a White and Purple Accented color scheme. If you notice on some of the pictures of the Bike I used purple grip tape on the Top Tube and frame platform. I was doing research on the Street Beat and saw on Maurice Meyer's page that he used Grip Tape on his Street Beat BITD and on his '85 Orange Street Beat Restoration Bike. Very cool looking so I decided to use it. This Street Beat bike is Super light.
I know I committed a Sin so Father please forgive me for using an Odyssey Gyro on a Skyway Freestyle Bike which should have a Spinmaster.
I hope everyone Enjoys this Bike.
