1979 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

1979 stamped Bassett 26" cruiser frame and forks.

Was mine until I sold it to Shannon Gillette (aka: thumperpilot) recently. He is in the process of turning it into a racer.. should be a top quality build based on what I've seen him do with his other projects.

Re: 1979 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser 26

did they make a 20 with this frame design? my very first bike looked just like this in a 20 inch. it was a hand-me-down from my cousin. all i remember was that it weighed at least 100 pounds.
