Re: 1982 Kuwahara E.T.

Leave he bars as they are!!!
As for the brake...is personal choice I think. It always felt more natural BITD pulling an Endo using the brake on the right.

Love the ET

Re: 1982 Kuwahara E.T.

Tell you a little story, back when i was a yougster mid 80's i worked at a little food store, and some little kid about 10 years old come into the store and left his bike outside the front door, while he was inside some one road off on his bike. the little boy was all upset because he just got the bike, and because i was a bike kid i wanted to help the boy find the person that took the bike so that i could get it back for him. I road my sting from work and found some kid riding the bike at the local jump. it turned out that it was a Kuwahara E.T. bike and because i also worked part time at the local theatre i watched my fav movie E.T.  the movie that this bike was based on. I took the bike from the kid and had the police give it back to the kid. Although i knew that i had to give the bike back, i'm telling you i had secound thoughts about giving it back, because of the movie i saw atleast 100 time because i worked there and because bmx was so much about the way i lived. sorry so long, but that E.T. Bike is Sweet!!
