1985 Skyway Street Beat

This project started out as a raw frame and fork that i had painted '96 BMW white.  It has Skyway bars, wheels and sprocket with custom black and chrome Street Beat decals that match the originals other than color.  GT stem and cranks with Barefeet tires.  This bike won Best Freestyler and Best of Show at the 2008 Old School Show and Shine in Bend, Oregon via peoples choice.

Re: 1985 Skyway Street Beat

Very cool bike.  How is the clean on the tires holding up? (Did you give in and ride it yet?)

Re: 1985 Skyway Street Beat

nope, unfortunately the bike has ended up being a carpet queen of sorts.  It just hangs around in the garage.  Kinda sad actually.
