Operation - Purple Reign

Since so many people have been helping me behind the scenes and/or showing interest in this build - I figured I’d give it its own thread so I can update it as I go. 😎


The goal is for everything to be 100% original, unrestored and period correct (except for the the tubes since it’s going to be my daily rider) 😺


I’m currently waiting on the frame/fork to arrive from the UK this week.  Here are the pics I have of it so far. I’ll get better ones once i get, clean it up and detail it out. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/273502/dc854eef-86c1-43bf-aef1-bf435fb463d661350b311c.jpeg

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

After it’s long life in storage in the Uk, the frame and fork arrived back in the US today.

After a few hours of rubbing compound - the original 36 year old paint is clean and shining like new. coolhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/273502/7dfa4ac5-d380-43bd-901e-5e0aa2f15eb76153d855c3.jpeg

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

Purple Reign builds are so much fun!  You're off to a great start--I love it!  Here's mine as a reference.  Always a balance between the pastel purple, the annodized purple and your third (or fourth) color (white and black).  Good luck!  I'll be following this build closely.

Thanks dude! I hear ya man, people are powder coat crazy these days - I don’t get it.

I like the look of old, original paint/decals - it’s only original once 🤙🏼

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

Which cranks? OG 3rd gen Profiles or first batch Hutch JDB?

They’re both filler till I find someone that will sell a set of 80s aerospeed cranks.https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/273502/7193e4a9-4e7a-44b9-8b0a-09e0031a04596149e3593e.jpeg

Re: Operation - Purple Reign

OG Profiles. Brand new JDB’s wont look right on a bike with that much patina.
