Re: Skyway TA Cruiser Score with Graphite Tuffs

I was an owner of one of the original 12 back in the 80's.... until it was stolen from me in 1991 coming back from a race.  I'd love to have one back in my garage.  I mean living room wall.........

Re: Skyway TA Cruiser Score with Graphite Tuffs

I think I had GT bars on it with 1/2" broomstick extensions on it to make them a bit wider.  It worked.

That frame and fork alone is worth more than your bike, not to mention the graphites......

LOL, not even close. To be honest, I would trade both my GT cruisers, and my Kuwahara 24, and maybe even my JMC 24 for a TA 24...

Re: Skyway TA Cruiser Score with Graphite Tuffs

lol

Dont jump to conclusions. Obviously I would have to throw more into the equation. Im prepared.

That frame and forks is only worth what someone would pay for it. Last one sold for $5k.

People were saying that would achieve $10k.

very nice find. I "found" it last spring.

I'tonguem bummed and stoked at the same time. Congrats. Glad it appears to be in good hands.That is my grail for sure. Here's the pics of it:

austin craig$list... i remember this and will never forget, i was ready to drive 2hrs to pick it up. i did talked to him last year, he was asking $2,ooo. but he said, someone is buying it already. but if he said he bought it yesterday then probably the winner from last year decide to sell it yesterday. i wonder why and how much ...hmm
