I wish I knew how to load this onto Photobucket so that it didn't resize so much. Any tips? Want to make it readable...

Re: Bassett Racing...let's see em!

Basset is a cool company. That bar that runs from bb all the way to the headtube is so sick in design. Great decals too. Nice builds in this post even that rust bucket 26er is sick!

Thanks man! Not going brakeless, I've got a 2 speed Torpedo kick back hub on the way. For now I've got an old Tech 3 lever and some Dia Compe 1000(porkys) with some NOS yellow Vans brake shoes to use until my wheels are rebuilt.

Here's my bike thread...

Re: Bassett Racing...let's see em!

Here's a Bassett "mini" that popped up for sale many moons ago over at the "Society".  A bit rough.....Yes, but I love everything about it. The added gussets, drilled parts and the Ralph's Bicycles  decals make me wish I was around to purchase it.
