92' Robinson Amtrac
« on: November 25, 2016, 12:22 AM »
Been collecting parts for this since picking it up off Carl in2bmx last year. Pretty much got everything together for it  now so thought I'd start a build thread.   :daumenhoch:  Amtrac frame without the correct forks unfortunately but has a set of GT Pro Series forks which I'm more than happy with (prefer em tbh). A few members off here have had a dabble with this over the years and it's been mostly dressed up in os parts so thought I'd give it a bit of mid school justice.



Its not original paint (think they only came in chrome) so gonna strip it and get it powdered. Carl's has some og decal sets for these too so they shouldn't be a problem. I've got the correct bars and vitually all the right GT stuff for it's age. Just waiting for some synstrip to come in the post so i can get cracking.  :)

Don't think there's many options when it comes to Robbo's tbh Lee. It's been red and got too many blue based bikes so I'm gonna go with white... see how that pans out.  :D

These are such nice bikes. Would be interesting to see the condition of the chrome under the paint.

Looking forward to seeing it built.  :daumenhoch:

The paint's proving to be a bit of a tw@t to shift so built these in the meanwhile...
