1984 Lee World MX Sport

rare DB Pacer 500 loop-tail manufactured by Formosa

F404xxxx serial.  'LW' riveted head-badge.  'P' gusset.  Akisu forks with 4-holes.  Sugino set: cromo crank, chainring (44T), spider, 2 bolts (missing 3.)  '500' stamped on both dropout blades.  Chang Star cable guides.  VP 747 beartrap pedals.  Sachs PC51 chain.  Not sure how original the grips are (4-diamond row pattern) or the angled handlebars.  Stem is stamped "FORGED" underneath (anyone recognize?)  Shop stickers are from Bicycle Radness in Palmdale CA Made in Taiwan (formerly Formosa).  Same manufacturer as Diamond Back, so was fabricated similar to the DB Pacer 500/SilverStreak model, with a 'P' gusset where the diamond would typically be, and with the '500' looptail dropouts.  (I guess the 'P' was for Pacer.)  Seems to have similar elements to the late 70's Panda frames... Not too much documentation on the Lee World brand.  The company belonged to importer Bob Lee of LA California.  Looks like he imported several hundred of these frames, then went on to sell more MTBs and cruisers for some time after.  The LeeWorldCo.com website no longer working, so no quick path to more info. Work in progress.  Mostly how I got it, then did some rust removal and prelim polishing.  (Fine-grain wool is next, then chain clean, lube around, then parts.)  Would like to get it back to OG, but hard to know what that is for sure.  If anyone has a picture of an original, please post! There are several of this model out there.  "Lee World LW bmx Pacer 500 P in gusset DB" for anyone who lands here searching... - BMX Museum forum 2006 - BMX Museum forum 2009 - BMX Museum forum 2011 - BMX Museum history 2012 - BMX Museum history 2012 - BMX Museum history 2017 - BMX Museum history 2018

Looking good so far and nice work on the research front too. I nearly bought one of these a couple of years ago and you're right, there's not much info out there.

PS cool avatar btw!
