1993 Powerlite P28

Fun little neighborhood cruiser.
     Is it a rare color? I know it's Odd!

Picked this up for a song. The pic is old before I cleaned her up. I originally planed to send it on down the road as trade bait or sale, but she polished up nicely and I enjoy zipping around the neighborhood on her. At first I didn't really like this green but it has grown on me now and looks really sweet in bright daylight. I put a dyno laid back on and up graded the brakes and ride comfortably at 6ft. It’s my first Powerlite and I think it’s a factory screw up but the spilt in the seat post that is covered up by the seat clamp is in front facing the top tube.

Re: 1993 Powerlite P28

my 93 has the same seat tube split. Must be normal. What is the TT length on P28?


Need used 20" items: red or blue metal flanged Tuff Wheel II front, yellow Tuff Wheel I rear, red Tuff I rear, Pro-class silver front wheel, gold Araya 7x or Ukai rear wheels 1.75 or 1.5, nice silver Araya 7c 20x1 3/8 rear wheel w/black low-flange hub, Motomag II rear

Re: 1993 Powerlite P28

This bike was my first BMX bike that my mother saved up for me long time ago. It had just came out in my town of Yuma, AZ. I was the first to own it, and as wierd as it sounds, for being such a wierd color, many people loved it. Unfortunatly they stoled it and I never baught another bike again. Its awesome to see this bike again and get some memories from childhood. Wish I still had it. Sad story but true.

Re: 1993 Powerlite P28

Reason they started placing the seat tube keyhole forward is for strength. When we sit on the seat our weight is shifted back, this puts a lot of stress on the keyhole and cracks the tube under the keyhole. By turning the tube 180* the keyhole is not under as much stress.

Plus, if you have the frames manufactured seat post clamp, the stamp/logo (In this case "P" for Powerlite) points back so someone behind you can see the logo.
