Skyway 24” Build
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:12 PM »
Ok guys, so as I requested this section I better kick it off with my new Skyway 24” Build. 😂

Took me about 3 or 4 months to source everything.
Scored the Frame, forks, bars, wheels and grips from various wanted Ads I put on the Skyway Group
Most of the other bits either came from Alan’s or EBay.
Big thanks to Wini for spotting the Suede Kashi Aero And dibbing it for me (£30 posted!!)

Wanted to go for a modern look with a bit of an Old School twist.
Worst bit was drilling the hole for the rear caliper !! Luckily all went well.

Parts list as follows:

2013 Skyway 24” Frame, Forks and bars.
Skyway 24” Black Tuffs
SE Vee Rubber 24x2.00 tyres
Mirage 37t chainring
Mirage Chainring Bolts
Profile Retro Spider
KMC Chain
Haro Euro BB
Redline 180 Twin Pinch Flytes
MKS-BM7 Pedals
80’s Kashimax Aero recovered in suede
AME Unitron Grips
Dia Compe MX1000 Calipers
Dia Compe Tech 3 Levers
SE Narler 1 1/8 Retro Stem
FSA Headset
Darxide Seat Post
Mirage Seat Post Clamp

Hope you like, any comments or criticisms welcome.

Steve

This is how a New School Retro build should be built.
