1982 Bassett Racing Pro

Craigslist find turned out to be the bike in the March '83 BMXA bike guide.

Well I saw a Craigslist add on Friday and had to work the weekend. Like most good finds I gave up on this one since I couldn't get there until Monday. I emailed the owner and they said Monday would be fine. I drive a little over an hour on Monday and show up at the house. The bike is sitting in the living room as clean as it was the day it was built. I still have yet to put a rag to it. We talk about the old days, have some mutual friends, and I put my head down and ask "are you firm on the price", then hand him the asking price. That price is far lower than the retail price in 1983.  Later in the evening I realize I have the bike that was in the March 1983 BMXA bike guide. Bars, forks, brake lever, pedals and spider have been changed due to preference by the original owner. Other than that it's as it was. Pretty cool I think.
