1983 Skyway T/A

1983 Skyway T/A

Skyway in pearl purple with white base.NOS Tourney 3 piece crankset and NOS sealed Sugino bottom bracket set.

Took me almost 2 years to rebuild this Skyway. Was so lucky that i found a NOS pair or Araya rims and i can't really bear to ride the bike cuz the koolstop pads seem to scratch the rims, plus i can't find anymore white IRC tires these days and i hate washing them after riding. Might consider selling it if i can get a Diamond Back or if Scarlett Johannson emails me for it..whichever comes first tongue
Look how bare and naked the poor bike is? Can't find any decals here.

I'm curious about the bike shops in Malaysia...please tell me how is it there. Once at the causeway i saw a Kuwahara  exhibitionist locked on a pole, with rust all over and and basket in front lol

Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

I found some gd Kuwie parts at a shop near the causeway and a bunch of bmx decals at a competitive road bike shop in KL, well that was maybe 4 yrs back. Saw a kid carrying groceries on a Redline while taking pictures of the state capital  once before.
