1981 Race Inc. RM-2

1981 Race Inc. RM-2

My first attempt at a rebuild of a bike i had at 13 years old.

I bought the frame and forks off E bay they were black with gold decals and in a very poor state ,this is the result it has been built up with mainly nos parts ,repro padset but the decals are oringinal.I hope you folks like it as much as i do.I am almost finished on a race inc cruiser watch this space . I managed to get some full size race inc bars for my bike ,also a race inc seat post ,but it spoiled the look of the bike i think,so i was really stoked to find a nos renthal lay back seat post and a peregrinseat .

Re: 1981 Race Inc. RM-2

The exact color combination of my first race bike back in 1978. Your first restoration is a mega success. Great attention to detail. Todays kids are so ripped off not to get all the colors we had BITD. BMX was bold and colorful and like Christmas. Your bike is a perfect example of how great BMX was.

Nice Job cool
