1979 Powerlite 3 Bar 26

One of the 'Kings" of the Cruisers.

I traded 3 Frame and fork combo's, to get this 26 Powerlite Frame and Forks. I built it up with mostly New Old Stock, and show mounted parts. I had the wheelset Built buy a good friend, who knows how to make a wheel roll fast and true!! 80 Powerlite Frame/Forks Blue Pro neck II DCMX "Dia Compe MX" double bolt seat clamp. Original ,early 80's Chrome Brake Cable Dia compe Lever Dia Compe 890 rear brake Chrome cable Clamps Grab on Grips Sugino Aluminum snowflake chainring. Blue/Silver Chain Shimano MX pedals Chrome layback with a Blue suede, Cinelli, Unicanator seat. NOS araya 7X hoops...NOS suzue Sealed Bearing hubs..laced with DT Swiss Stainles spokes...Spoke nipples alternate Blue/Silver NOS Mitsubishi/Tioga "Hound dawg" tires. This is my daily Rider..and It rides like a dream!! It's my favorite 26, to roll the streets, trails and the sea-wall. Kev.
