1987 Wim Cycle Voltus

Strange Indonesian BMX

Now here is a strange one ! Looks like a Mad Max roadwarrior style bike ....
I got this many years ago , it was locked up to a bike rack and abandoned , i was always checking it out , one day the city came and cut the locks on all the abandoned bikes and left them to the side . I was quick to grab this bike and lucky to be there that day .
It not a super high quality bike , it's just so weird and unique that you're sure to get looks riding it . No one who works at bike shops have ever seen one of these , It's a Voltus , made in Indonesia . I don't think it was destined for the North American market , as no one including myself has ever seen one of these . Some how it made its way to Canada in a ship or something .
It was fun to cruise on this one , i had it fixed up when i was in college and we would go on drunken night BMX cruises , 5 or 6 bikes strong , all from my BMX collection . Good memories .. at one time this bike had black 5 spoke mags and looked ill . Definitely not a performance or race bike with all the stuff on it , pretty heavy but lots of fun to just cruise on .  It needs a bit of work now .
The frame , attachments , fork , headset , cranks , pedals , seat post are all original it seems , so are the cool fenders .
banana seat , handlebars/stem , and wheels not original . has holes in front forks for thread in freestyle peg framestanders .
The fairings are really strange ! Looptail on a freestyle type bike is quite strange too .
there's a bit of everything going on with this bike , an odd mix of freestyle and racing in a totally non-functional package !
It's in storage now , but I'm plannning to fix it up next summer .

wooow... this is great to see this big_smile. I lived in Indonesia but never seen like this one. Wimcycle is one of the most popular bike company in Indonesia, but i never guess that company made this one on that year.. but if that's right, wimcycle supposed to be the one who made the "legendary" in Indonesia

Wild looking bike. It definitely has a lot of different things going on with the design. I love seeing rare and unique models like this though. Very cool.
