Hi there and welcome in :wink:

two very sweet rides there, a lot of us would love them

so clean and beautiful looking - well photographed as well which brings them out great

look at the side walk, all clean and no dirt/rubbish

so how big is the scene where you are ? do you have mates to ride with or is it internet and once in a while meets ?

cheers B :wink:

Cheers for the comments. The scene here? not much of a scene really. There are collectors here but BMX was never big so most of them don't really know anything. Its all 10 speeds or freestyle, neither of which is interesting to me so no-one to hang out with. I just go riding with the missus mostly (although she finds it embarassing to ride the ET haha :oops: )

Cheers

WoW!!! The ET is amazing!! How could anyone be embarrassed riding that??

If money was no object, then an ET (and a Harry Leary Turbo) would be at the very TOP of my ream/ wish list!!

Good work.

No that cruiser is an original 1983. Kuwahara will never remake those. Like 99% of Kuwaharas from that time the tubes are Tange and the frame was jigged and welded by Toyo. If you have a Kuwie, it was likely welded by Toyo and not Tange as is often assumed.
