Re: 1986 MARTIN APARIJO GT PFT REPLICA BUILD

Thanks guys!  It’s fun to stare at!  Hopefully when the weather here shapes up I can ride it a bit.

Maybe someone here would like it to be theirs. It could be bought also.....  I’ve been in the selling mood lately. smile

Frikkin awesome job on this build! coolcool

Even down to the scrapes on the cut off stander. Unless that is Martins old one.....

One thing tho, from a riding/safety angle, is there enough threads engaged to hold the rear wheel tight in this pic?

Now that's quite the freestyle tribute build, and though I'm more of a Haro dude when it comes to freestyle, this is an awesome bike.

FROM WHAT I WAS READING, IT WAS FOR STABILITY WHEN HE STOOD ON THE HANDLE BARS.

Re: 1986 MARTIN APARIJO GT PFT REPLICA BUILD

Has Martin seen the bike?
Sorry I'm new to this...

He would probably be like "Whoa!" and bring him back good memories.
