1987 Summit Freestyle Free Flight

SOLD!
87 Summit freestyler Free flight... show me another one.

Found on Ebay in pieces and with a badly broken seat mast. I decided to experiment with it and restored the seat mast. I made a post about it a while back: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=264437
Like many of the off-brand bikes from the 80's, this one has details that compare to other more famous bikes of the period.
Definitely a rare bird.

Re: 1987 Summit Freestyle Free Flight

One Summit in the entire Museum... Crazy. My bike was a Summit. It looked like an 87-88 Mongoose Cali in chrome... just not quite as cool. LBS owner told my mom it was made by Mongoose. Guess he lied. BUT, I DESTROYED on that bike. My friends all had Mongoose Cali's, Redlines and GT's... and I made em look sad on their sweet bikes. lol

Good for you owning a Summit... still looking for my little chrome knock-off. cool

Re: 1987 Summit Freestyle Free Flight

I have seen a couple more in the museum forums, but the owners do not upload them.
I am redoing the decals so they look more like the originals.
Thanks! and I do enjoy having it,

That's cool J-ROD. big_smile
No standers, cable guides and a wrap around top tube.
88 maybe?
