1979 Roger DeCoster

1979 Roger DeCoster

Race-trim '79 Roger Decoster with '79 Tange fork

Frame & fork from 79, then most parts added are circa 80-81. 
I was never able to afford the bike I wanted all at once growing up, so I still like to build them as if I'd had to save a few weeks or months for each part.  So this bike sports the best I could find from the times - '80 (or so) gold stem double clamp, dia-compe brakeset (all stamped & matching: lever, caliper, pads, and cable), Supermaxy cranks, Sugino ring, MO-1 chromoly rat traps, KMC chain... and then the 81-82 parts started to appear: Race Inc bars & post, Suntour clamp, Turbo grips.  Etc. 
All blue & gold because I was a huge Cal fan as a kid.

I agree, nice Decoster!


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks ;)
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"

Thanks!  Both you guys have some beautiful 1970's BMX Products bikes - your opinions mean a lot to me.
