Rare find, rare parts, sweet ride...holy crap!

My heart breaks over tossing those Peregrine 48s that you had on them, but enough of that, this thing is looking gorgeous!

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

Thanks everyone for the compliments.  I didn't know I had a rare bike.

The wheels I had on there originally, I believe were RL Edge 48s as I could not afford Peregrines back then.  I usually don't throw things away but apparently I did indeed toss them.  Oh well.

Raddynodetour, thanks for the reardrop out fix I will for sure give it a try.  tapanui, thanks for the link for the Bully stem decals I will be getting a set for sure.

Since the wheels I've only got one new part and that is just a Gyro 2. 

Since I value everyone's opinion on here, I would like to ask for your opinions on two more items.  I'm not really all that interested in keeping it time period specific and so with that what does everyone recommend for the following?

-Tires
-Brake levers
-Pedals, I would like a set of Shimano DX but the price looks to be out of my range.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Tyers = there's loads of black/tan freestyle Tyers on the market,
Levers = dia compe tech 77 they still make these and will look the part,
Pedals = there's loads of dx style pedals on here and eBay, vector or is it victor are cheap as chips!
I also have 1 of these with the correct forks! Sick bikes;)

Sucks that I had a matching original fork but have no idea where it is.  I've been looking for one and perhaps I will come across one for cheap but until then I will rock what I have.

No new updates to report.  I think my next purchase will be tires and pegs which I am leaving up to my son to choose.  So car he likes the below tires and pegs.

Shadow Conspiracy Strada

Bone Deth Coffee Grinder Peg
https://images.danscomp.com/images/products/mid_518198.gif

I am thinking the red-wall tires might actually look really good.

***EDIT***
Just realized that the tires that my son like are 2.30".  Will they fit my 1.75" rims?

No! Wash it was regular car-wash soap and a hose. Dry it off and use this

I've had excellent results with it.

Negative on that.  I will be doing what tobin suggests and just giving it a good washing and polish.

Those tires will give it a modern/retro look. I think it will come out sweet. If you decide to go the old skool way, check out Kenda  K-55 black/gumwall tires, they look the part.

I plan on keeping my Slammer.  I appreciate your offer Joey.

Finally, spent some time cleaning up the frame.  Hosed her down, sprayed plenty of Simple Green on, applied rubbing compound and lastly did the "Wax on.  Wax off".  It turned out pretty good.  It a lot of spots where the bare metal is showing but I don't care.

I wouldn't mind getting some new decals.  Can anyone point me in the right directions for some decals?

I see your where you are coming from.  Fresh decals would clash with the "used" look of the paint.  I'll just run with what I have. big_smile

I'm not sure if the 2.3 tired will fit, maybe a more knowledgeable member can chime in. If you can find the new decals, buy them and if you ever do decide to restore the bike, you will have em.

Keep up the good work!!

I wasn't sure about the 2.3 either so I ended up getting some Kink 2.1" tires which I know will fit.

Re: 1991 Dyno Slammer...Need help...where to begin?

I got a little frustrated today.  I went to test fit the wheels which have 14mm axles and are "slotted" to fit 3/8" drop outs.  Well, my GT fork dropouts are to narrow.  I'm not sure what king of bike the GT forks came from but all I know is that the dropouts are to narrow!!!! 

Not sure what my options are for sure.  I guess I could sell my Bully stem and go with a new school them and fork but I would rather keep as much old school parts. 

Any thoughts/opinions would be great.

Lots of GT / Dyno forks take a slotted 3/8"" axle, along with a "hat" washer in each dropout.

Porkchop has the washers - http://www.porkchopbmx.com/3-8-axle-ret … -38468.htm

You may need to swap out the axle on your front hub to a slotted 3/8", or a regular 3/8" and file down some flat areas to fit inside the dropout openings.
