1983 Healing Industries HI-Max

20" Healing HI-MAX

Hi-max
NZ frame made by Healing Industries
A traditional HMX 500 or 600 with 3 speed hub in rear
Original condition (original paint and decals, last pic shows how it was found)
Light baby blue in colour
This is the geared version of the famous HMX500 and HMX600's
Has a old school Shimano 3 speed rear hub with 3-speed trigger similar to my 24" Supersport Harrier listed
Same frame as the hmx 500 and hmx 600 in dimension and weight
It is in great condition for its age
Even has the healing MX calipers, these are the same as what was found on supermax's
I wanted to convert it back to traditional HMX with the bars
Will update with pics as I got along.....
.
Serial number -
.
Update: stripped and rebuilt
Original frame with original paint and decals
Original Tange Forks
Original large Healing bars (added)
Original blue Uni-Max padded seat (added)
Original Nitto MX-1 stem (added)
Original MX Healing blue brake calipers
Original Healing chrome cranks
Original chrome Araya 20" rims that were on it (protected by those covers)
Original Gumwall tyres that were on it
Original Tuan blue grips (added)
Original Shimano 3-speed trigger and rear F3S hub
New repo MX brake levers (added)
New chrome slanted seatpost (added)
New KMC black and chrome chain (added)
Most of it is old parts cleaned up and made to 'somewhat' look pretty again, hardwork and elbow grease, also lucky finds.....

Spent a bit of time on the 20" Araya rims, they are the best I have seen... and worked with, they were orange from rust
but were fairly easy to bring back to new, even the old school tyres came up reasonably good
Some pictures.....

Even the old discs came up great after a scrub, but they still have a shadow outline of the stickers that were on them
I will fix that soon enough, got some ideas up the sleeve
No dints and no cracks, great piece of history in awesome nick

Re: 1983 Healing Industries HI-Max

Another interesting bike.  I never thought that riding position came out that early.  You did a great job on that wheel.


Hi my name is Falkor and I have a bike problem;  I can only ride one at a time......
