Re: 1998 Technique Pro XL

and here are the cranks all restored.  replaced all 4 pinch bolts both spindle bolts and a new pan head allen to replace the huge hex bolt they had on it.  kept the stock aluminum washers.  polished the arms stripped the black spray bomb off the spider and gave it a clean satin finish blue magiced the chain ring to make it look like a mirror without having to use the wheel finally i put on a set of aluminum gt stamped chain ring bolts.  these pics make the cranks look horrible by comparison.  up close these look so bad azz. cool

also i put on a set of bombshell f-4 phantom triple clamps as a good stand in till i get some hanebrinks or something equally nice.  also put the tech stem on.  wont mount the cranks yet so they dont get banged up until i get wheels on it.  got a few other sweet surprises coming up soon cool

Re: 1998 Technique Pro XL

heres a couple updates pics.  i went  into detail what i did under the main description.  yes i know the seat is too high ill adjust it later and the disc thats on it isnt the 1 ill use since its too small and the tektro caliper has to go also.  i have a hayes in my garage somewhere but i cant find the damn thing.  also didnt want to put on the cranks till the new bearings get here

Re: 1998 Technique Pro XL

but the pedals fork and chain i expect to take a very long time to get my #1 choices.  which is a hanebrink silver and black or silver and gun metal.  revcore or tech pedals and a regina hollow pin bmx chain.  other stuff im open to changes like the wheels seat post seat disc caliper etc. no rush on those depends what i run across.  but at least it will be up and running in a couple days.

Re: 1998 Technique Pro XL

WOOT WOOT project complete check out my updated photos! cool feel free to let me know what you think but spare me how silly you may think the tall stack of headset spacers is.  i actually intend to cruise this 1 lightly on days off with my bro.  and i need the stem that high so i dont hurt my back from leaning over too much tongue but even tho its finished its still not finished...  over time i still want to get the tech pedals regina chain a hanebrink black or gunmetal fork. and whatever else i feel like changing in the future.

Re: 1998 Technique Pro XL

ok did a do over on this 1 and im very happy with the changes.  changed out the bombshell f4 forks and put on a set of redline flight forks.  also switched the fit faf tires with maxxis holy rollers.  these forks look cleaner and less busy with all the stickers and the color was odd.  and the fit tires were too new school and feel these tires look way better.  soon i want to ditch the tioga lever for a paul love lever.  feel free to comment on it if you like.
