1979 Powerlite 3 Bar 24

When I 1st saw this "rare piece of history", I just had to have it.

It took me 6 months to get where I'm at now, saving and buying parts for that 1 special frame and it came at the end. I had it stripped down and then powdercoated heavy gloss black. (No dings or rewelds, clean) The stem is a pro neck, the bars are tuff neck, about 29 inches wide with a 4 inch crossbar. Tioga headset. Ame grips (there soft) tuff neck seatclamp, annodized blue fluted seat post a "viscount trick seat" (I like the padding). 3 piece SR crankset with 39 tooth sugino chainring. YST BB, KKT lightning pedals, Weinmann alloy rims with 14 gauge black stainless steel spokes and black painted brass nipples. (For heavy duty riding) Silver annodized KT Vintage high flange hubs, chrome 16th freewheel  (photo update soon) and Ritchey "Megabite" tires. Its got a dia comp lever and 880/890 brake system with dia comp stainless cable clips.  90% of the parts were either "Brand New", NOS  or close too..., I love that feeling you get when you ride, (especially when you never had a cool one), makes you feel like a kid again,  its AWESOME!
Photo will soon be updated!
