1983 Tahoe Racing 24

Tahoe was short lived here in Minnesota and here is a rare cruiser frame and fork serial #25

1983 Tahoe was expanding into the hot 24" Cruiser class with a similar front end, non-loop rear, and Torker like forks made by Coast Wheels, CW. The handling of this bike is great, strong, and took the abuse dished out by the team. The Team's Blue, Green, and White color combination was unique and trying to get that same feel with the cruiser.
A year later Jack decided to head to Phoenix and sold the company to the Taylor's from Indiana. They continued to make the Tahoe's but included a mini and newly designed 24" cruiser frame. These are distinguished by a hole in the rear dropouts vs. the solid Minnesota ones.
Not too many of these guys around and glad to be able to share some Minnesota BMX with everyone!
Relive the Tahoe years with a Tahoe T-shirt as seen below by my wife and I! Just contact me your size and will ship it out $15 + shipping.

Yes, super rare green 7x's and they get more attention than the SST laidback post, Son-Lites, and the DX cranks.

Thanks for the positive feedback on some Minnesota BMX!

P.S. if you click the second picture there are more photo's

Didn't know about the Tahoe bike until looking around.  The color combination looks great on both bikes, don't see too much green back then.  DX cranks are sick and do they work?  U have some top notch bikes and keep them coming

Beautifull cruiser! Wernt the Taylors from New Carlisle Indiana? I had a girl friend from there and she knew the family.
