Laguna build for my brother Kenny

I have been dreaming of this day for a long time

My only brother Kenny passed away in 1990 at the age of 27 I was 21

I remember his 1981 Laguna cruiser black and gold he was a avid surfer and made a trailer to hold his surf board towed it with his Laguna. 

Well trying to find and pay for a original 81 Laguna cruiser would be a long shot.

3 weeks ago my dream came true after church I stopped by a garage sale and in back of this truck with all kinds of stuff was a black and Gold Laguna.  MY JAW dropped I could not believe what I was seeing Covered in dirt and grime 81 Laguna cruiser

Cleaned up pretty good added a few parts. http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/64774/9aa20b7b-d4c5-4403-8d41-4f343ea4ac585d62f5e5de.jpeg

Re: Laguna build for my brother Kenny

Was that his actual one? or just a chance find?

Either way that's amazing. Fate is a funny thing cool

It wasn't the Atari 2600 ET video game that caused the video game crash, it was the Pac-Man version released years before. Ha!
