1982 Kuwahara KZ

Sprayed like Elliot's KZ frame used in E.T, not the looptail bikes released after the film... Regularly used & covered in mud!!!

Bought from ebay in summer 2005 and sprayed with E.T. candy colours, then gradually bought the parts from Alansbmx and Skatepool.... It was originally set up with ODI Toadstool grips, Black Dia Compe MX brakes, Kusuki Win Bars, Black unstamped Win Durabull Stem, Elina Flyte Tech saddle, Odyssey lay back post, Sugino 175mm one piece chrome crank with black Sugino 45T chainring and Black Odyssey Shark bite pedals, chrome Suzue loose small flange hubs with DT swiss spokes & black Proper Rims, laced by Alansbmx.............then i started downhilling with Dirty Harry at Cannock Chase and realised the brakes weren't so good, so i had V-brakes braised on for super stopping.... bent the odyssey seat post from a few crashes, shredded my body a few times before discovering the beauty of body armour.... the bike was used for downhilling from summer 2006 until winter 2007 when it was dismantled ready for re-mods & respraying... I have cut the rear v-brake mounts from the KZ frame now and may repsray it different colours in due course.....

Re: 1982 Kuwahara KZ

Thanks you for your comments Shivadread big_smile
Not sure what the skinwalls are Chromey, i think i still have the, but they are white walls and i know some entusiasts frown upon this!neutral  I currently have Michelin Diablo white walls - childrens tyres but they look nice big_smile... It is currently being rebuilt, but will take a while this time due to my stupid architectural career going down the pan after the credit crunch crap.....  Maybe we can all celebrate these low times with a Credit Crunch Bar?  Yummy:P

Bloodied angels fast descending
Moving on a never-bending light
Phantom figures free forever
Out of shadows, shining ever-bright
