Re: 1984 Curtis Pro

Very Nice. Looks real quick


Han Solo : She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

Thanks for the compliment. Been tweaking on it little by little. Got a Brooks plastic BMX style seat for it need to get pics with that now.

Picked up a couple of British BMX magazines from easkeybikes and found this ad. Not a Pro model neat none the less.

Re: 1984 Curtis Pro

Can you get a few close up pics of the Brooks Vitesse seat please, Todd?
I'm interested to see what they look like.
