Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

Thanks and yes the forks are probably the coolest feature IMO.  This is a closeup when I opened the box smile

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

Crazy - last week I was doodling some frame designs and did something similar (double top tube/X frame design). Was thinking, I wonder if this had been done already but I just haven't seen it - there's my answer!

Those forks are nuts!


I like to wear sneakers on my hands because it's much better when you crash - and if you're wearing sneakers on your hands, you're gonna crash.

Thanks bud, I've been back and forth on how to build it but I think I'm narrowing in on it.

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

880s or 883s? I'd guess 883s based on the year of the F/F. The turquoise in the decals makes it difficult to go with another accent color besides black/white/chrome parts. Good luck with it. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out.

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

Thanks James, I had planned on using white Nippons which I have already.  I was playing off the pink "Trickstyler" decal on the down tube but have swapped on pink parts, blue parts and turquoise/teal parts as well just to see what I liked best.  The bravo bars are keepers on the build, but will be redone in white.  I have some pink masters I planned to use ultimately, but they need to be freshened up.  I also considered doing white masters with pink or blue tires or turquoise masters with white or black tires.  I just need to decide on a primary accent color and run with it or possibly throw in a 3rd color with the brake cables or something subtle.  We'll see, it might see multiple iterations before I'm happy with the result.

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

Yeah the prob is that turquoise isn't easily available anymore unless you replaced OG with new stuff. I myself would try a different color brakeset as white on white isn't very differentiating. Since I've never seen turquoise brakes ever, I assume they were never available (at least from Dia Compe). I'd try polished/chrome or black if possible.

Also taking picts of the different setups will help show what might work & what might not. Ultimately it's up to you to do what you'd like though tongue

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

I welcome ideas on this one so thanks.  I put white Q 1.5s on there just to see if I liked the white look and I did so that's a lock.  Everything else is up for debate.  If I use the white Nippons, I'll certainly do the inlays in an accent color other than the stock black.  I'm not opposed to having the calipers redone in an accent color as well if that's what it takes to get the needed pop.  Here's a pic with the white bars.

And with turquoise masters, the lighting sucks in these basement shots...

And the faded to radberry pink masters which don't work without some freshening.

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

You'll have to do some figuring out for sure. The seat/grips/brakes/levers/wheels/housing are the important things. I'd stay with the chrome post since you might be using the chrome cranks. I wouldn't use white grips unless you're going with a white seat but that is a lot of white.

Brakes in turquoise would be cool with white inlay, but not common. Polished/chrome brakes would work because of the post/cranks. I assume you're going with MKS Grafights as pedals? Just a guess though. Depending on what you go with for brakes/levers will dictate your housing color. All black brakes/levers/housing will go with the tires if staying black on those. Black is always easier to get except the 883 calipers are almost non-existence because everyone seems to snatch them up for their GTs. Of course if you're using a Gyro, black housing is the easiest to get as well. A lot of things to consider. If you've already got some basic ideas of what specific parts you are using for sure, start listing them so you can figure out the color scheme of the rest that you haven't picked out yet.

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

I agree on all points.  The white grips will not happen, they were just already on those bars when I mocked it up.  I don't like that white seat on there either.  My original gameplan was pink masters, pink grips, pink seat.  Maybe mix up the brake cables in either turquoise or blue.  I will more than likely be using chrome 401s on the bike, although the profiles also work.  You probably can't tell in those pics, but there's a Peregrine detangler sitting on it currently which was part of the original plan as well.

What's holding me up is seeing the pink masters "restored" and mounted before I pursue any other options.  I was trying other things in the interim and nothing is really inspiring me.  I'm hoping in the next few weeks to make some progress on it.

Thanks for your input James!

Re: 1986 PTR Trickstyler

Made a little progress and slight change of direction with the build.  I apologize for the blurry basement pics and the seatpost is clearly way too high lol  Once the cailpers are all cleaned up, I'll get those on and find some levers and we should be in business to button it up.
