Re: 1979 DG California Pro

What happened to the stem?  Where did you find this?

Looks good. Why would someone waste their time commenting to say it's destroyed? Get a life. I appreciate a custom bike.

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

The stem is on the race inc. I liked the yellow better than the gold, plus I just did the mini in gold. As you can see in the og pic the bike had alot of issues, all I did was restore it back to original minus the stem, to say i destroyed anything is just silly.

That bike was a beauty.


This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My signature, without me, is useless. Without my signature, I am useless.

Would love to acquire a Sunn B-Mix 26.

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

Just the way I wanted it to look, I dig the yellow & black together, plus why do I have to be like everyone else? It looks awesome in person!!

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

Does the quick release still work on the brake caliper?

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

Hmmm.. the bikes were really rusty from being outside for years,e specially the dg, the original plan was to re-anodize everything, however there was so many pits in everything & so much rust that anodizing would not fill the scars, so everything was powdercoated then brought home wet sanded & then taken back for another layer of powder & as far a thanking the people who bring my ideas to life being lame, dude, get a life! These are the people that make this hobby fun!!

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

to many, including myself, that DG was a perfectly beautiful survivor. that could've easily been traded or sold for enough coin to completely fund a full restore project on a F/F that actually needed it.

and no offense, but calling the powder-coated components "restored" is just wrong. they're powdered.

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

Yeah, the powder was put on thin so the brake would still function correctly.

Re: 1979 DG California Pro

Restored meaning, everything was taken apart, cleaned, powdered & re assembled, what's your definition?

Just for the record, I don't hold a grudge, you are all entitled to your opinion, just keep it clean & i'll accept all the critical with the good.

you had me up until "powdered".

my definition would be returning the item to a better condition using the same finish process (if necessary). in this case the powder-coating of items that were originally anodized is what spurred my comment.

and yes, let's see some 57 oval shots. looks really nice from what I can see.

Is the chain powdered too? I didn't even know that was possible.
