Hi all, check out my Floval Flyer. I bought it new in '82, I think. It was a complete bike, but I changed about everything but the frame, forks, rims, spokes, some bearings, and possibly the seat post and rear brake caliper. Hutch Bear Traps and Phil Wood hubs I got used off a friend. Other highlights are DK stem, Thun cranks, and the wide GT cruiser bars. The red sprocket is because I was being cheap, the skateboard decals and padded seat went on after I quit racing. I did race it in the Chicago area as well as Central/Gulf Coast Florida.

Cool bike. What kind of bars did it come with? I bought a Floval in 82 in the Chicago area that had Race Inc bars on it. I'm thinking mine may have been built by the local Schwinn shop, but am not sure.
