Re: Another 86 Dayglo Pink... Watermelon Version

Too bad GT doesn’t remake those tires posted above in 1.75’s. I don’t know if I could handle 2.2’s on an 80’s performer or champion’s sic hutch WS. But I’m still looking forward to this watermelon reveal!

Little progress. Like a where's Waldo with all the mess around. Sorry about that.

Holy Crap!!! What's up with that miniature performer frame? Is that a custom 12" looks way to small to be a Jr Performer?

Lol no I think it is the angle of the pic. It's a regular 20" 86 PFT frameset.

Got the cables and levers on. Get the tires mounted to the wheels and get those on and should be getting close to being done.

Nice box collection.  I finally said 'F It' and reduced down to 1/4 of what it previously was.  Don't ya just get sick and tired of trying to fit box into box into box. It's like Matryoshka Amazon boxes. FML


If you dare me, I'll jump pretty much anything

Thanks lol. Believe it or not that's scaled down some as I have sold some stuff. Boxes came in handy when we moved over the summer though. Once I sell some more stuff I'll probably recycle what's left.

Re: Another 86 Dayglo Pink... Watermelon Version

Guess this has officially turned into the rebuild thread. Couldn't deal with the right lever being a flipped left so I was able to source a set of NOS R/L 128 levers in green. Got them, the front standers, pedals and bearing cap on.

Next up, I need to mount the tires and get the wheels, standers and chain on. The old pink/green mismatched shinkos are still super soft but just too worn. Going to probably go with the ramps for now unless someone has an orphan green and an orphan pink shinko?

Still need 2 pairs of green brake pads.

Some progress. Still will tweak it some. May end up getting a pink chain, pink dice valve caps and maybe pink pedals. Need to get brake pads then set up the brakes.

Re: Another 86 Dayglo Pink... Watermelon Version

Haha!!! I love a high end build - with this whimsical inspiration.
Looks Amazing!   

Either of the green mags would look good on there. But I like that you went with the GT mags for this bike.
The green cranks are insane, messing with my eyes! LOL

love it.

Thanks man. I agree. I kinda thought that but put the green chain on it anyway. I'll keep looking for pads. Now to find a pink izumi?

Re: Another 86 Dayglo Pink... Watermelon Version

All of the pink on they bike matches perfectly it will throw everything off if you put the "Wrong Color Pink" chain on it imo...
I actually think the green chain looks great keeping with the all green cranks and pedals setup.
Bike looks Killer!!!
Green mags=green brake pads. You dont want pink brake rub on those green mags. big_smile
