Re: 1984 Skyway T/A XL

That's awesome. It looks great in blue even though I am partial to the white ones.
What's the story with the color combo?
And nice drivetrain set-up. Those are Skyway pedals right?
Also, is it a rider, I see it's an XL with a laidback GT seatpost?
And not to get personal, but how do you like Escondido? My wife is from West L.A. and we talked about retiring in Northern San Diego. Seems like Escondido would be great.
Peace.

Re: 1984 Skyway T/A XL

yeah its a xl havent ridden it yet i thought i would paint it a different color to be a little different. but the frame paint was thrashed when i got it or else i probably would have left it white. yes those are skyway pedals had them powdered the same as frame.kind same color old gt performers used to come in. and dont come to southern cal its ugly here and the weather sucks smile

Re: 1984 Skyway T/A XL

SWEET! It's cool to see the T/A's in different colors, even though I am a fan of the white.
