Didn't the 1981 Limited Edition come with Team Style forks?

keep it OG. if it was black, restore it to black. if not, your not restoring it... you're "refinishing" it.

I second this, leave it black!


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink

I currently own 3 motomags a 77", a 79", and an 81" unfortunately the 81" is not a freemag.   Desperately waiting on pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
