So Saturday night my wife and I are on our way to a party.
On our way we stop at a TGI Fridays in Hilliard Ohio.
Since we just wanted an appetizer we decide to just to sit in the bar.
On the wall in the bar is a black Kuwahara with black Torker forks all decked out with nice gold accessories.(Race inc bars, maxy cross cranks, etc.)
I go over to look at it and I notice that they mounted it to the wall with 3" drywall screws...... right thru the rims!!!!!!
Some people have no sense
This put me into a turmoil needing to know what kind of rims had been ruined.
I was unable to make a final determination because my wife came over and told me to get off the table, there were people waiting to sit down.
My thought was they were Ukais but am not 100% sure.
Obviously who ever hung the bike on the wall was not an old school bmxer.

Normally they drill through the pedal hole in the crank and just use hooks for the rest. No damage. I feel your pain brother.

By the way, the bartender did say that they get a lot of comments on the bike.
I wanted to ask him why some dipstick would run screws thru the rims, but then I decided not too.
The damage was already done.

My local TGI's has a GT Interceptor. They used long drywall screws and washers to go between the spokes and hang it, plus the missing pedal on the wall side used the same thing. Overall a pretty crappy bike. It even had a kick stand on it.

Just came back from my TGIF's in Scranton.

Mongoose Expert. May be one of the last years for the looptail (don't know what year that would be)? Old school stickers (stars going down fork legs). Old school Mongoose sprocket, but mid school looking Mongoose round platform pedals. Bars looked like GT freestyle bars, but had Mongoose sticker on it. SR Stem. Did not have Pro Class rims. Hinged seatpost clamp, lay back seat post, and black pillow top seat. Bulldog brakes. Orange chain and orange radcaps. Everytime I'd think early 80's, I'd see something that said late 80's.

Mounting was very nice and not damaging. The Powell and Peratha Bones Brigade board next to it, however, did not fair as well.

Fridays- Collierville, TN.
It had S&M on the head tube. I don't know diddly about them. The down tube said HOLMES. It did have Redline single pinch cranks, some crazy looking rims w/flame like designs on them. I guess it's a jumping bike because the dropouts were very thick. The funny thing is, the forks were backwards.
Mounting was good, using wire tied around the tubing to screws on the wall.
