Hi all, after a while away with building a house i thought i would pop back and share my old school BMX. I bought the Skyway and GT from a friend and gave them both an overhaul as they were pretty shoddy.

The Skyway 86 is pretty much oem parts, all but a repop seat, from this:

Love the SE Quads, they're the perfect balance between Ugly and Pretty... I know this was posted a while ago but would love to see a full build of that!

Thanks guys, I am debating building the quad, I think because it still retains the warranty tag, its probably more a show piece than something I would ride. What do you guys think?

Though they are meant for riding, i would personally keep the frame as it is.

On reflection that is probably the more sensible option. it looks immaculate! really good display piece.

I've thought about it a fair bit, but if ever that tag gets ripped of while riding, i would be devastated, where am I ever going to find a never ridden quad frame Ĺwith its warranty tag. Sacrilege I know really as its meant for riding. I have put a headset in and mounted the forks so it can be displayed better, bizarre to think its the first time they have been together in 35 years.
