1981 Champion 26

3 bar original finish

Not sure of year. 1981 is a guess.
I got the frame in '91 when on vacation in San Francisco area. It was the mission of my vacation to get a 26" Bmx.
Then built it up with parts of that time. With a couple old ones mixed in. And a couple parts replaced since. Ridden a clossal amount.
Champion 26" 3 bar frame. Landing gear fork ordered from se in '95(Trx before that bent from jumping)Odessey dynatron headset, pmc headlock(no room for locknut with tall HT)Dk inverted stem, CW cruiser bars, gt ame grips, Profile 185 cranks, bb, and ripsaw 43t. Club roost pedals. Odessey z77 seat, LB seatpost, DK sp clamp. Araya 7xs, dt spokes, alloy nips, redline high flange fatbody hubs. Hutchinson Python tires. Odessey pitbull brake.

Sweet steed indeed. Everything looks spot on but revcore pedals would trump the club roost, but pedals get abuse and are similar to grips as in vintage is cool but useable and disposable is best. It's life ! Live it, brake it. Bleed. Repair rebuild n' wreck it again.

Feels too good to ride to be overly concerned about the looks. Would consider restoring it someday but need a bank account and something as great to ride.
