1980 SE Racing OM Flyer 26

1980 SE Racing OM Flyer 26

OG California Cruiser....




Photography by "vicsta"




Here's my OG finish SE Racing "OM Flyer".  Everything on this bike is OG finish.  All I did was clean up the parts. I didn't even try cleaning up the frame and fork because the stickers look too fragile.  I acquired the F/f in mid-April and finished it 2 days prior to the Society show on June 4th.  This bike truly rides like a dream!!  If you haven't had the chance to ride an OM flyer....go out and do so!  You'll be hooked!  This is my first 26'er and it surely won't be my last.  I am an official cruiser fanatic because of this bike!  These photos were taken by the man himself....vicsta....@ the Society show in Bellflower. 
PARTS LIST:
- OG 4130 SE Racing OM flyer frame with matching non-stamped Landing Gear fork, OG stickers and paint

Re: 1980 SE Racing OM Flyer 26

How did I miss this getting posted. yikes I dig everything about this bike. Completely perfect from top to bottom. With all the character and patina this shows it is definitely a bike that has been loved and it has aged very well despite being used. A total fav for me and probably the baddest Om I've ever seen. cool

Empty your PM box.


I never log off and I had to disable my screen saver because it was causing problems , making me have to restart my computer every time it kicked on. Please keep that in mind if you message me and I don't reply back right away. Thanks.
