1986 Kuwahara Bravo KT
1986 Kuwahara Bravo KT
Built from my pink spare parts hoard
I was digging around in my garage clearing out some parts to sell when I realized how many pink parts I had. Before I knew it I had the tires, grips, brake set, seat post and clamp, pedals and OG pad set. I don't even know why I was hoarding pink parts. I also had the black freshly painted Bravo KT frame set and bars sitting in a box from where I moved house 4 years ago and never got around to building it. The NOS a OGK mags and Dominator seat were for another project, but they work on here so they'll stay.
I've literally not bought anything specifically for this build, everything was in my hoard. Maybe I have a problem ? I also found a bunch of orange parts, so look out for an orange build coming soon !
The crank, frame standers, headset and pegs I refinished myself in a matching pink. Other than the pads being too dark and the brake cables a little light, it all ties in OK.The only thing I want to change is the sprocket. It was the only one I had kicking around and doesn't really work IMO. Need to find an OG Bravo sprocket.
