SE FLOVAL FLYER CRUISER

Not one for the purists, but I chose the parts to complement the build. Mix of New School Retro, Mid School and Old School. Built as a 'rider' rather than the usual show pony fare... My first build for nearly 3 years (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

SE started V mounts in 94 and then threadless stems in 95 acording to the pk ripper frame referance table on Happy Internet of joy and wonder!. I have to assume SE followed the same trend on the Floval. Im sure if i am wrong someone will pipe up. Still an awesome bike and my favorite design ever, I have always been a huge SE fan. I have owned 5 P.K.Ripper frames(4 second Gen and one old school loop), 1 Quad and 1 Floval. Anyway enjoy that badboy

That is a really nice ride. I really am a fan of the OS look... guess that's why I got a baby blue '09 OM. I am currently looking for camo pads for it.

Love it! I did a similar thing with a 2007 Floval frameset.

Bob, That looks really good with the gold. Way old school. Looks so good in fact, I may hav to start switching over to gold components...
I am having trouble finding a padset in camo, myself. I have my original set from the '80s, but really don't want to use it due to age and the fact that the crossbar pad is too long for my bars on the OM. Where did you get yours?

PS I found a camo seat on Ebay that has pretty much the same shape as the SE seat you have, but the camo matches my original padset almost exactly...
