1980 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

This beauty was left in my backyard in Santa Barbara 15 years ago.....all i knew was that i dug the looptail's...took all the original parts off and replaced them with schwinn beachcruiser stuff.....LAME...it was all chrome with blue components...the only surviving component is the seatpost clamp.....i thought the forks may be cal-cruiser's but thanks to Ryan Partridges tireless effort..these are bassett forks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This bike rides unreal....the perfect cruiser

Sweet ride, you're a Santa Barbara native living in the Southbay?

Re: 1980 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

Have just seen this on the Bassett thread and love it! Very cool


Check out my 1983 VDC-built Trident, 1983 Kuwi Laserlite and 2011 Crupi race rig, plus the all things Crupi & old school scene in Japan threads. Always interested in buying used, mid-school race plates.
