I am sorry for not being able to give you anything more than that..

I really really hope you can help.

Hey Dave - yeah I think Powerlite during the 90's were made and sold by Pacific Bicycles who also owned GT? Bit late for my interest and knowledge though! Some pics would be great.

Awesome gear Mick. Waz is the master of refinishing like NOS smile.gif

Welcome Tim! First round is on the new guy!

anyone know where I can get a uni cycle in melb? preferably around Frankston.
Jarvi
Just take the forks, bars and stem off, mount a seat on the head tube and you have a uni-cycle. Seriously though, no idea.

Are you finally going to realise your childhood dream to run away and join the circus?
Kurt.
You are in Melbourne - just go town and mug a mime or some other feral street "artist"!

my oldest brother who is 52 and 6foot 2 wants one for christmas.

I have found one. thank you all. rolleyes.gif

I got bored and threw this together this arvo. Too hot to do anything.
Wheels and tires will be changed soon.
Enjoy.

Kurt.
Looks tough Glenn. What wheels and tyres are you going to go with?
COASTY
Thanks mate.
I've got metal hubbed Tuff II's and Cheng Shins.
Kurt.
Perfect! How's the length of it compared to your Goose?
COASTY
It's very similar to ride. I'll have to measure it up. It looks shorter but it rode great. I love those BIG V bars too. They make it so nice to ride.
fuuzoku
tough looking bike... the anno on that stem is nice seeing as its obviously been used smile.gif


a couple of bits for an upcoming build .... embossed suede drinks.gif


Jarvi
Check out the size of the sprocket.
COASTY
Bloody hell! Image doing those speeds and having a tire let go?? Amazing. Checkout the pic of the guy behind the dragster!!!

I forgot about these too. Original Bottema stickies I got from DaveC. Straight to the sticker album.
Kurt.
Nice gear Tim.

Cool stickers Glenn. I have some of those yellow ones here too somewhere.

Man now THAT is a chainring. A blowout at 170kms. Crazy. How long would it take to safely pull up from that speed. wow. Check his forks too!
COASTY
It was very tempting to replace the og yellow one on my plate. But I didn't.
I just got back from an hour ride with Tobes. I took the Supergoose and it just feels "right".
Steaming hot here at the moment. Rain isn't helping things either.
JMCGT
I just gave a heap of those away Glenn.. didnt think anyone wanted them. sad.gif

and just this morning picked up a set of those forks.. skatepark version
COASTY
Nice one Matt. What are you gonna put them on?
I would of given you the $30 I paid for these 6!
Kurt.
Great pickup Matt. Don't see them around much that's for sure. Where's the pics!!!
JMCGT

Kurt.
Would love to see some pics when you get them mate. Bottema skate parks are on my definite one-day-list.

Oh so I'm going to try and kick off 2011 and actually build something I've been trying to build for years..

Some of you know that I bought a Profile Cruiser a number of years ago that was a complete dog under the glossy yellow powder...So I've finally given up on the thought of restoring it because it is rooted.

If any one sees an old school Profile 24 frame (fork not needed, but I will purchase if need be) I'd appreciate a heads up. I want to get this project done f i n a l l y!

Oh and Merry Christmas to you all.
mcam
Stu, I remember that Profile 24. That sucked majorly, and you of all people didn't deserve that sad.gif

I'm sure I saw a Profile 24 with non profile forks for sale a while back somewhere. I'll try and find it.

Profile 24's are great cruisers. Nice race geometry, thats for sure.

Merry Xmas to you too!
