1986 Skyway Street Beat

Complete survivor

86 Skyway Streetbeat survivor, I chased this bike for a while and finally convinced my friend to sell it to me. It has grey comp ramps but my friend included a set of NOS baby blue skyway tires with it.

Re: 1986 Skyway Street Beat

Nice looking bike. Your pictures brought out some cool details I had never noticed on these before. I love the way the rear cable goes through the top tube. I also didn't realize these had flat top tubes.

OOps--now I see the cable doesn't go through the top tube.

Me too.
I'm not sure when I found this pic. it was years ago. I think Maurice posted it on vintage.
Apparently he was on tour in Germany - and the german freestylers were saying that he looked just like the guy from the condom box. :lol:

I think that's how the story goes.

If this pic was from germany - who knows what the bikes in  the background are? Shauff?
Looks like one of them may be a GT though.

Re: 1986 Skyway Street Beat

How did I miss this one?! Cool ride Mike! I love the grey Comp Ramps on this bike! Very cool. Def one of my favorite color combos!!!

Funny picture of Maurice with the condom ad! I hadn't even looked that closely at the resemblence of Maurice and the guy in the pic cuz I was a little too distracted by the blackout area! :lol:
