Re: Really rare Old school cruiser find "Challenger Racing 5 bar Cruiser"

Been away at work for awhile and got home tonight to a few packages. One of the packages was a really nice set of bubble font A’ME rounds so the bike is done. big_smile

Gonna ensure everything is dialed tonight and go out tomorrow for a cruise.

So the other package I got was a set of decals. The original manufacturer who I chat with on FB here and there messaged me and said he had some made so I had to grab a set.

I can’t put them on the frame as all the original decals are still on it so I think they are gonna go on the forks even though they are LG’s which look kinda naked.

What would you do with them?

Re: Really rare Old school cruiser find "Challenger Racing 5 bar Cruiser"

I'd hold off from putting them on the forks. Maybe find some LG decals. As for the frame decals...that's a tough choice. If were me, I'd put them away for safe keeping and take some more time to think about what you want to do with them.

Re: Really rare Old school cruiser find "Challenger Racing 5 bar Cruiser"

Went with red grips instead.
Won’t be doing anything else to it but bomb around on it as I really like it and them big GT bars, they are awesome.

So all original finish and parts from when it was built in 82 aside from the tires and grips.

Re: Really rare Old school cruiser find "Challenger Racing 5 bar Cruiser"

Sweet as is. I'd save the decals and keep the fork naked. Anything on the forks is going to stand off from the frame and the rest. Just my .02 cool


It's yours. Do what you want with it smile

Great day in the beautiful Okanagan to ride some old bikes with my son to play some baseball.

Re: Really rare Old school cruiser find "Challenger Racing 5 bar Cruiser"

Hold off from any stickers on the forks and good move with the red grips. Looks amazing. Good job. smile
