2012 Skyway T/A XL 24

This is my Skyway.
There are many others like it...
But this one is MINE.

Frame #403. With a 22" top tube and a tall head tube,.. this thing is a Cadillac. It feels... almost like a 26". So for me its going to be a street cruiser. Done up with Bullseye and Skyway parts. The tear drop tubing is one of the best concepts ever. The pics dont show the artistry of the tubing.

Looking for:  VG cantilever brakes. Boss 175, or 177 cranks, And a Boss seat clamp.

It feels big and tall. Thats why I keep saying pro bars are no good for this. And with 41-17 gearing, it accelerates like a train. It hasnt seen dirt yet. I will give it a little DJ test, but Im not going crazy with it. I have other bikes for womping. If this were a pro cruiser then I might race it.

edit- On second ride, Im getting used to the height and thinking this would be a fun jumper. Its not feeling so big.
