Re: 1986 Cycle Craft XL

Awesome bike.  Was it originally yellow?  Did you paint it or powder?  I can't tell.  Do you have any before photo's?

Thanks for the comments. It was spray bombed white when I got it. Definitely not the original finish. I had C-4 refinish it in yellow. I chose yellow because my younger brothers last race bike was a yellow Cycle Craft.smile

Re: 1986 Cycle Craft XL

Did the drop outs need repaired?  From what I can tell they look perfect.  Not chewed up like some of my bikes.

Dropouts were in great shape. The finish was a mess. Thanks again for the compliments,

Nice ride! I'd knock out a link or two on that chain though.

I would too but a 1.75 tire is a tight fit on this frame.

Too tight by the lower chainstays? They have small rear dropouts so I know it can be tight. I'm sure you won't ride it much but it will ruin the dropouts. Have you tried moving the brake up to the highest position and move the brake pads up, that should get you more centered in the dropouts.

I'll never ride it so it's fine as it sits (and sit it will).smile
