1989 Kastan KEX Pro-S 24

Resto-Mod KEX Cruiser

This bike got a rebuild with a Uni-Blade. It's right here: http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/kastan/64088 I'll leave this one up for now so folks can check out the original build.

I posted a photo in the "Comments" section of what the bike looked like when I got it.
This is a 1989 Kastan KEX Pro-S Cruiser. I got it with really beat up paint, but the frame was structurally excellent. Somebody had already welded V-brake mounts to it, which matches my 20" and makes it usable on a daily basis without crashing into everything (I know Pitbull's seemed great compared to Lee Chi calipers, but once you're ridden V-brakes, you just can't go back). I have yet to find a 24" Strut, so in the meantime I set it up with an Odyssey XTRO. It's a few years newer, but almost as quirky and weird as the Strut, so it seemed fitting. I finally got some reproduction decals made, so I was able to finish the bike last week. Here's a shameless plug, if you are looking for Kastan decals check out my posts, I have some listed for sale.
