1980 S&S Newport 26

1980 S&S 3-bar 26 inch Cruiser

Here is a restored S&S racing cruiser from 1979-80.  I got it as a f/f on Craig's list and discovered a crack in the seat pinch slot when I got it home.  After about an hour of wanting to slap the guy who sold it to me, I took it to a frame builder friend of mine an had it repaired.  The lame powder job was then sanded smooth and fresh DuPont base/clear paint was sprayed on it, followed by some of Ultrahive's nice repop decals.  The parts include:
Cook Bro.'s cranks and YST sealed BB
NOS Tange 125 headset
Tuf Neck bar and stem
NOS DC MX 1000 brakes with Campy housing clamps
NOS Conpy suade seat
NOS black fluted seatpost
Re-polished Ukia shiny side rims on Suntour seal hubs with new decals
Kenda K-Rad tires
NOS KKT Lightning pedals
I can't beleive how nice this came out!  It seriously looks new no matter where you look.

Wow what a killer build! I saw your post on my Laguna so I had to come over and check this one out. Great choice on parts and concept. I am really digging the black and blue colors together. And the Speedlines look awesome!

Great build you have here, man.  big_smile

Re: 1980 S&S Newport 26

I've PM'd TBUCK on this point but others may be able to help me with finishing this off:

http://i22.tinypic.com/2nbum82.jpg

The final spec is still evolving but it needs it's S&S and Newporter stickers to finish it off.

I used to ride dirt and skate parks on this until it finally snapped at the head tube.  I loved it soo much that I kept it, in fewer and fewer pieces, until last year when, having collected the parts needed, I pulled the carcass apart, got a new seat post (alloy seat post/steel corrosion) put in and the head tube properly fixed then, built it up.

So, if you have, can get, know a man who knows another man who saw a bike with some on whilst on holiday last year then please let me know, they would finally put an end to my toil.
Cheers,
