Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

Another piece of art work from Chromey.  Once again you've outdone yourself.  So rad to see a "freestyle guy" nail a race bike like the past couple you've built.  I'm absolutely honored to be a part of this one.  I just love all the OG condition parts used and the tires are off the hook.  You, my man, are an artist.

Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

Gorgeous bikes you got there. When were these 1st gen Profile cranks made? Didn't Profile make them for Hutch albeit with the "Hutch" stamped on them?

Thanks. :)

Those are actually first gen Bullseye cranks actually, not Profiles. Made in the early 80s.
Similar looking to profiles, but pretty different in construction - these are 2 piece cranks with a completely hollow tubular chromo spindle.

Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

Just found another random pic of my old T/A out in the wild at Summer Slam 6.
Figured I'd add it here:
