1983 Direct Link

I always admired Jon's DL and always wanted to get my hands on one....so 1 day a friend of mine gives me a call and let's me know 1 maybe up for sale and gave me the number.  Lucky for me it was from a collector who took great care of this example-a lightly built NOS frame set.  No serial number and an undrilled fork.  I really didn't know what I was going to do for a color scheme as the yellow stickers always  kept me guessing.  I really never had a real plan and would pick up parts when I thought I would see something that I would think would look good.  I always wanted a nice HF hub because of the way the rear drop outs would give a great view of the hubset.  So one day I saw the padset and the rest of the parts fell into place even thought the stem pad was a double pad that I had a seemstress alter into a regular width pad.  THE PARTS:

F/F set-                                 1983 DIrEcT LiNk by REACH BMX Systems

Saddle-                                  NOS ELINA dated '83

Seat Post clamp-                   NOS TANGE in BLACK

LOL Pathetic is having to get a new account because you are afraid of your wife...  Your turn kitten balls.  smile

Getting your wife to beg for cheap Hutch grips for your "bday" is pathetic when you are too cheap to pay the going rate

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Don't screw over those you tell your secrets...its not talkin shit if it's TRUE.
