Love these! What have you got planned for the build?

So far, I have:
Trak-Pro frame
Haro 1" Threadless forks
CW bars
Crupi mini pedals w/blue cages
Lavender Z Rims (not sure if I'll Simple Green them or not, I kinda like the gray that they are now, honestly)

Plans:
Profile or TNT repop hubs (the Z hubs they came with were a mess, and I'd like some bigass flanges on this build)
Profile Push Stem
Chris King 1" BMX headset
Profile Elite cranks & sprocket
Profile Elite freewheel
Dia-Compe 1000 rear brake & Goldfinger lever
Uni Seat

So a lot of new stuff;  meaning this will take a while  smile
Decals if/when I can get them, or at least head tube decal from an ebay moped decal listing if I'm at the end of the build
That's the plan, at least.  We'll see how closely I stick to it.


2000 Haro Shredder, Chromolive Green, almost complete - just have to do Evo IIs
2008 24" Quadangle with mix of old and new, trying to figure out Paul cantis
1987/88 Kuwahara Magician frame - Mostly done;  rebuilding 6-spoke Tuff axles
Building:  Early 80s Puch TrakPro and Subrosa Pandora DTT - purple frame, SC Oil Spill components;  first new school build

I just wanted to update my Trak-Pro build a bit here.  It's been slow in developing, but I'm starting to get around to things.

Decided to do what I am calling my KISS Army tribute, in purple and red.  tongue

I have officially given up on Thruster forks and am going with a race theme.  So I have a threadless set of 1" forks (Haros I had from my Haro build that I didn't think looked right on a full old school build), Crupi:  1" headset, mini pedals, and seat post clamp, and a Uni seat I found on the bay.  Right now, rims are being laced up - lavender Z Rims with NOS purple Crupi flip flop hubs, purple nips, and red spokes.  Then it will come down to getting some cranks, euro bb (conversion is already on the frame), rear brakes, and a stem.  So it's getting pretty close;  head tube is from a moped set.  If anyone knows of someone doing repros of actual Trak-Pro decals, please post it.  I've given up on that too.


I'm amazed how lightweight the frame is for such an old bike.

I will have to step up my game on the next rider build. It will be built with instock parts so let's see how it turns out may have to use up some Huffy parts. Lol Thanks

Re: Thruster

Both your dog and I agree that it's a very impressive build!  tongue

Damn, I'm jealous - i couldn't find one tri-power frame when I was looking.

Update on my Puch build - not much.  Got the laced rims back and they look great.  But not much else;  hope to get things going this summer.

Thanks, You need to finish the Puch so you can use it this summer.

Re: Thruster

1979 Thruster
Believed to be a Jamie Burrows. It has the special drop outs mentioned in the original ad.
100% Original Finish. From what I can tell it’s only the 3rd one found in this color in OG finish to this day, and the only one that is complete. The other 2 seem to just be frames. It even has the rare first gen double cut fork in mint condition.
Got this bike as a survivor, only thing I changed were The bars. It had the same ones on it but in silver. I thought the blue ano was nicer. This is the 3rd Jamie Burrows Replica to be added to the museum.
