How cool is that? You must have some great memories from back then. I was cruising a home brew BMX bike back then. I'll be running TA cranks on my Klunker with a bottom bracket adapter. I'm not sure what size seat post I'll be needing but I'll keep my eyes open for a chrome moly version. Alan Bonds and Charlie Kelly and those guys used solid aluminum bar for the same reason. Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate it!I raced a Schwinn Varsity Klunker in the very late 70's and early 80's in Northern California.
