1988 Brackens Racing Products XL

1988 Brackens Racing Products XL

Here is my latest pick-up. A low serial Brackens Racing Pro XL frame set complete with original Brackens Pro bars and original seat post. The seat clamp is a NOS Powerlite item and stem is NOS JP racing. I have also fitted a set of  Profile 4th Gen cranks and will be putting crupi hubs on it laced to Araya 7X wheels. This frame has been in storage for years and has never seen the light of day as a rider. I am slowly building it up to the standard it should be so just waiting on the finishing parts. I even have a NOS spare sticker set for it as the other ones have minor damage from storage. I hope you guys like it, I love it.

WOW low serial there mate. Here are some pics. The bike is in storage at the moment so I found an older pic. Hexagonal cross bar and the bars are NOS too.

Re: 1988 Brackens Racing Products XL

Does anyone have a padset for one of these that I can buy? I have a set of NOS decals for part trade and yes, they are the genuine article too.
Thanks in advance.
Adrian.smile

Re: 1988 Brackens Racing Products XL

Just came across one here in Auckland yesterday - WOW - never heard of them but familiar with the brand owner from way back when! The example i saw had no wheels and sitting in storage since brand new and never built up or ridden, perfect piece so i came home and searched here for the history and is impressive, thanks for insight guys.big_smilecoolbig_smile
