1983 Cook Bros. Racing

This is my baby. My favorite ride.

I bought the frame and fork at a police auction in 1986. I got it cheap because the department didn't know what make it was. The were at a loss with the serial numbers and bottom bracket. I spent months looking for the right parts. I didn't mind the brakes and the cranks didn't match, it was my first build, I was just so excited. I did have silver Araya 7X rims with blue ano ACS hubs. I am always keeping my eye out for the downtube decals too. I just need those, build me some rims and off I go. Thanks to Porkchop BMX for the tires, been looking for those for a while. Also picked up the stem from Porkchop. UPDATE! I found a full set of decals on the bay. New pics coming.

Great looking bike, I am working on a 83 Cooks. I really like your Squad 51 profile pic. I might need some d5w with a saline drip t.k.o., After trying to find C.B.R. Parts and the lofty prices!


Still a million bucks shy of being a millionaire.

Thanks. CBR parts aren't too hard to find, you just need a government bail out check to buy them. A member on here "masterstint" has repop decals, I need to get some from him. He has them in blue, red and red, white, and blue. He is a big CBR guy, send him a pm and see what info he can give you.
