So there's nothing particuarly outstanding or unusual about this bike, or this build, other than that it's a largely original survivor. What may be a little unusual is the story of how I got it.

I quite literally rescued this bike from the trash. I knocked on the door of the nearest house, and there were two guys inside who appeared to be fixing the house up to flip it. I asked about the old bike in the trash out back and they told me to have at it. Some of you probably know how hard it was for me to calmly walk back there to throw it in the back of the car...

Nice build, Such an iconic 80's bmx bike. I remember the ads in BMX Plus magazine. I literally just sold off my silver streak, it was hard but I needed to thin out the bikes to make room for my old Ford Galaxie. Trying to remain happily married, ha!
