1992 Cycle Craft XLX

None wishbone XLX model

This bike is a bit of a strange one as it is an XLX without the wishbone. There are 2 more like it on the museum, however unlike those two, this one has a machined BB, and a strait brake bridge (all other Cyclecraft's I have seen have a curved one). Because of this its pretty hard to put a date on the bike, but it seems to be an early 90's model.
All the paint is original and Ive kept all the decals that were on the frame. The missing ones were replaced with colour correct items from Frog. As with all my builds the idea was to build it up with era correct parts, and I was lucky enough to come across some really nice ones during the build. The 1st generation Kovachi wheels, half wrap flights and sprocket, square edge XXL DK stem, DC Big Dog, and Pro sized Fredz Bars are some of the highlights of the build for me.
