Time-lapse of the tear down. I recommend putting your favorite music on before pushing play.

Alright I didn't have time to post an actual description for this project, so I'll do it now. This is a 1970s Austrian built Stratostreak II I've had it for a bit tried to sell it. Ended up deciding to refurbish it and give it away for free on my Instagram as a thank you for the people that fallow me.


As of right now I plan on just cleaning the bike up and to repack the bearings.

Cool project with an even better purpose!

That's the first one of those I've ever seen, Scribs. Looks like a wild bike! Glad you could join us for the MBBO.

RaT oN~!

Thanks OddJob, figured I'd join in on the fun since the MBBO's are so small. I find the smaller comps more fun easier to keep track of the builds.

Good idea not to mess with cottered cranks :D
If i were you i'd just cut the top of the fork main tube and weld the new top with the good thread on top, to still be able to use that.
I'd love to if I knew how to weld or had somebody that would do it for me. With how the Fork attaches I don't think it's ever going to fall off, I'll have to do testing before I decide to give it away. Last thing I want is to give away something that will harm somebody.

I got hit with a bad cold front just could not work in my garage, I would lose all the feeling in my hands and feet in 5 minutes.

Yeah, nearly the whole continent has been colder than normal. Pick it up again when the temps rise, Scribbs!
