1985 CW Racing Pistol Pete

Wicked race bike right here...

Picked this Pistol Pete up some time ago and finally got around to building it. Pistol Pete was the best 80's racer there was so I tried to make this as '85 race ready as possible. Fun bike to ride.
Parts include....
HBS Bars
Redline Flight Cranks
Hadley Bottom Bracket
Pro Neck Stem
Bullseye Hubs Laced to Ambrosio Hoops
CW Tires
Hatta MX II Headset w/ Suntour Lock
Tuf Neck Seat Post
Kashimax Aero Seat
Dia Compe Clamp
Dia Compe MX 900 Caliper & Tech III Lever
Shimano Cable
A'ME Grips
Suntour Pedals
Izumi Chain

Excellent parts on this bud, really dig those bars.  This looks light and fast, tongue

Re: 1985 CW Racing Pistol Pete

My next build...F/F is currently sitting about 10 feet away!  I also have a set CW tires...do happen to know what year(s) those actually originate from?  The best I could find is maybe '86+?

Anyway...cool build.  Now get working on the ZL!  lol

They were made that way. Kinda like Powerbends crossed with CW Pro Bars. The grip area is a great fit.

Keep an eye out for HBS bars, they don't pop up very often. wink

Here's some more pic's. big_smile
