1983 Skyway T/A

A bike I definately could not afford in 1983.

TA frame and fork, early tuff 2's with metal flange and no stamp, rainbow label Comp 3's, MX neck, Skyway bars, AME grips, Dia Compe 880 front brake and lever, Suntour post clamp, GT post, Aero seat, Sugino cranks with anno red Sugino caps and KKT lightning pedals.

All it needs are the $500 Grafite's. If you can find them.... Mine didn't have them either :(

Well, I've seen Graphites for sale, but I STIIL cant afford em. They usually go for over $300.00. I just picked up some NOS black and gold Tuff pedals. These will enhance her even more.

Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

Agree on the graphites...
I have a set on a Prostyler but now want to build a replice Richie Anderson Patterson or a Skyway TA around them. 
You guys may remember Matt Hoffman riding a TA early on.  I remember the first time seeing him ride his TA on vert in person, scared the hell out of me!

Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

I love this bike, so different from all of the other TA's.  :cool: I have a similar scheme planned for my 25th anniversary TA.

This must be one of the nicest T/A's I have seen to date. Great colour scheme with the gold touches. I agree the graphites with the gold flanges would totally finish her off.  :D
