This is an og race bike raced by Scott Long.
He had it up for sale here on vintage a few months ago and I bought it.
I did changed a few items to more era correct items.
And items w/ nicer deeper anno blue to help accent the beauti of the F/F/bar/stem set up.
You'll find my pics ain't professional by any means. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool.gif
Parts list as follows :
'80-'81 Thruster Tripower F/F/bars and stem
NOS decals added, supplied by Scott
Araya 7b's (og) laced to Sunshine sealed 1st gen hubs w/ NOS Asahi spokes (added)
MX3 headset og to the F/F
Campy cranks w/ YST sealed BB
KKT Lightning pedals og
Shimano DX rear brake NOS w/ Scott Mathauser pads
Shimano pre bent lever NOS *note the correct Shimano cable end !
Kashimax aero seat NOS
Schwinn seat post clamp
Comp III 20 X 1.5 rainbows
Dia Compe cable strap
This bike was kept spotless by Scott so I really didn't need to clean it much if any.
Very rarely do you find the Thruster bars and stem...let alone a F/F in this condition.
I have seen maybe 5 of these stems in 10 years collecting.
I believe I placed the incorrect headtube decal on ... it's ok I have the other one as well.
As well I didn't install the handlebar decal.
All good things take time and all of my bikes are works in progress.
This is probably my favorite piece in my collection.
Scott if you are reading thank you once again. I sincerely appreciate the deal.
As far as I'm concerned this is still your bike it's just in my museum and I'm the curator.
So for all those who say vintage's for sale section has nothing to offer ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif
It's not the fs section that makes the site it's the people here ! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif
BTW .... NOT FOR SALE !!! Please do not ask.
