1984 Skyway T/A

1984 Skyway T/A

My actual original race bike frameset from 1984!

This build started off with my original "survivor" chrome Skyway T/A frame and fork set. (Yes... it's the original chrome!) I used a set of our re-release model blue sealed bearing Tuff Wheels with Cheng Shin Comp III tires. Skyway Tuff pedals, Tuff Neck spider and chainring, with 1-piece Takagi cr-mo cranks, as this is what most of us actually raced with at that time! Dia Comp MX1000 brake, cable, and 2 finger levers. Other parts include a Tioga heaset, CW Pro handlebars, laid back post, ACS clamp, 1986 "New York" State Plate by Zeronine, A'me grips and a Aero saddle. This build is pretty much a replica now of one of my first T/A's that I used to race in Pleasant Valley NY in the 80's.

Awesome!  You must have mega long fingers to use a MX 2 lever.

Stunning Skyway! I'm beginning to wonder why I never picked one of these up back in the 80's :/

Sweet T/A. I have a 83 T/A and use to race around the neighborhood, we didn't have a track near were I lived.  Looking to restore it. I have been trying to post it on the museum but I always get the, This page not available sign. Trying to post it soon so everyone could see it and give  me some input on restoration.:):)


Its not what place you come in on the track. Its just knowing that you finished.

Ride hard or go home.
