After 32 yrs finally found my childhood bike

Thanks to Virgil on here I finally bought my childhood bike back. It was my first good bike I got in 1986 and after owning it for a year it was stolen. Then I replaced it with an 87 Kuwahara Bravo team. So here is my 86 Bravo  kt this is the only pic I had of me riding it in 1986http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/237800/0bba6cae-4009-42f1-b002-a862a39345db5cd0c9650b.jpeg

Congrats cool

I'm amazed though it being stolen, you found it essentially original condition after all these years.

Cool story...was Virgil the Debo of the neighborhood...he finally brought your bike back...sorry for the Friday referencehttp://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/208533/0a546cb7-7a9d-43a4-9aee-c8ecf96100a35cd16022b0.jpeg
Cool story...keep an eye on it this time


Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in
the 80’s...
Please no colored tires on race bikes...
So how many years were you a Pro....
You knew a guy that had a Mongoose that weighed 12 pounds
