Thanks. Yeah. I was going to put a my Timmy Judge replica plate on it, but I didn't want to cut it. If I liked those levers, I'd cut it, but I hate them. They do work better on the Thruster bars than any others. I'll put a Shimano DX lever on it soon (as soon as I get one) and then put the plate on it. The Timmy Judge replica is my fave plate. The colors Haro used for is are so elegant.

Re: 1980 Thruster Vanishing Point

Updated with lots of new stuff. Except for the pedals and a blue saddle I'm waiting on, I'm calling it finished. Fun/nice riding bike.
