1979 Team Rampar [FINISHED]
« on: September 30, 2020, 07:58 PM »

OK so this one is done.  1979 Team Rampar - as I mentioned in the build thread (linked below) I was a little looser on era correctness for this one whilst I focused on the all silver / black components to match the frame decals - but it's roughly 79 to 81 parts. Consider them upgrades over time or maybe the frame set was in the shop window for a couple of years and the kid chose from the parts available in the store in 1981  ;D

Anyways... I'm really happy how this one turned out.........

Build thread: http://www.radbmx.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,196281.0.html


Parts list:

1979 BMX Products Inc (aka mongoose) Team Rampar frame and forks (re-finished in candy red over nickel).
Rampar pro bars
Suntour earlier short reach all-alloy stem
NOS ODI / Winner's Circle grips
NOS Shimano Tourney lever with nice survivor Tourney caliper
NOS Schwinn clear / silver brake cable
Lightly polished Araya 7x on NOS Suzue chrome plated hubs
NOS Carlisle Aggressor MX200 tyres 1.75 / 1.75
Shimano Dura Ace cranks - nice survivor condition with original pantograph detail in black
NOS Suntour XC Compe pedals
Tange / Mongoose seat clamp
Refurbished / polished Race Inc seat post with custom Black / White decal
NOS Ariake Jaguar seat


And here she is...........

Really liking this one John. Different (BMX Products) F&F, stunning colour, and great parts selection, all came together to give a stunning result. Top work  :4_17_5:

Now, if I could build them as quickly as you I think my good lady would be far happier  :LolLolLolLol:

Spot on that John, well away from the era I remember and like the most, but always like to appreciate a quality build, of any age.


GO FORWARD TO THE PAST, WITH NRP'S
