Tho, I am not sure it can be called it a "survivor". The way that thing is looking, and the way you must have taken care of it over the years, we may need to come up with a whole new word as survivor just doesn't seem to do it justice.  smilesmile

lol Thank you. Yea it doesn’t get out much , really only when going to a show. Other than replacing the tires and grips it’s exactly how it was when retired. Back in the day it was ridden/raced hard and being young and dumb, I took it lake jumping a few times!!!! What would I have done if I lost it in the water??? lollol

Re: YOUR Survivor

New pads, tires and pedals and decals.  I never used the seat so it's in excellent condition, the grips are almost goo.

Re: YOUR Survivor

bought frame/fork used (but it looked new) from a kid down the street in 83
because it was too small for him.

https://bmxmuseum.com/image/oaz052558cb475aa_lg.jpg
thrashed it for many years. Was found under parents deck about 15
years ago looking like this.

https://bmxmuseum.com/image/img_0665_copy0_lg.jpg
as restored 10 or so years ago. looks a good bit different than this today.
Its still gold and chrome but is now decked out in suntour parts.

Re: YOUR Survivor

Kinda breaking the rules here since it’s not BMX, but it’s my survivor with a kinda cool story.

A while back a similar bike posted to the local OfferUp. It was the same bike my dad had when I was kid. I hadn’t spoken to my dad in years, so I sent him a message saying something to the effect of it being the same bike he had when I was a kid. He responded and informed me he still owned the bike, but hadn’t ridden it since “the crash”. I remember the crash even though it happened back when I was in middle school. He and the bike were in pretty bad shape. Anyway, he sent me the bike, and I built it back to factory specs except for the wheelset which although not factory was era correct.

I remember when my dad test rode this bike. He picked it up at Dale’s Bike Shop in Oberlin, OH. On the test ride a driver pushed my old man off the road. He hit a telephone pole and broke his collarbone. Going in and out of consciousness he laid in the ditch clutching the bike afraid that someone would take it while he was blacked out.

1987 Cannondale SR500. It was the first year they offered it with a complete Shimano 105 groupset.
