Time to bring this thread back. Photobucket killed all the pictures, so I need some advice from the prostyler experts!

I picked up this frame set from the original owner (still has both shop decals!) and I want to build it. But I’m having a hard time with what handlebars and stem came on this exact model. Forklifter stem and bars? Or the more normal looking Bmx bars? (Sorry I’m a Gt Guy lol) what brakes and levers came on this model? I appreciate any help!

Nice! That's an 85. I would have come with forklifter stem and "STR Series" straight corssbar bars.
Brakes should be Dia-Compe FS-880 with tech 4 levers I'm pretty sure.

Awesome. Thanks!

Now I’m seeing 4 bolt and 6 bolt Forklifter stems.. what’s the difference?

As far as I got a few years ago.  All sold now, but was fun.  Was only short of properly dated cables, original tires and exact chainring teeth/color when baby came along.  Maybe I will someday build another.

That bike still blows my mind. One of my favorite looking bikes of all time. The OG version and graphics was all business and no flash.


ride your bike until it breaks.

If you pop out those bearing cups you might get a glimpse of what the original color was.... if that matters.

I took it all the way down for a respray, turned out it was Cali red, same as my RL20A. So went a different direction.

Been riding this one often, has to be the best rider in my fleet ,thus far.

That's super RAD!

Do not restore. Once you start; where do you stop? Just clean it up and add a brake cable and chain. If anything is broken replace it, but it's awesome the way it is. cool

I finished this in 2002.  It was perfect.  Everything was NOS except for the bars.  The brakes had the turquoise lettering.  I'm an idiot for selling it.  I've never seen one as nice.  http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/242981/dscn51645b478b2a51.jpg

GORGEOUS.

Did I sell you the frame set?  I had an NOS frame set just like this, and still kick myself for selling it (lol).  Looks like we both miss a pristine Turq. 22....
