Just finished this up today. Almost everything is same as what the magazine said was on the bike. The seat mast was repaired by Joe Buffardi. He also painted it, he worked his magic and was able to save all the original battle scars. I owe him big time. I could not find any gold Shimano high flange hubs(pre 1980) . So I will have to keep looking, I'm doubting they exist. I found a Shimano lever and bent it myself, I also broke one. I'm really digging it.
The BMXPLUS decals came in on Saturday.

A diamond drop is the one SE frame I'm missing from the line up.
Great final build there :nah.I.mean:

Great job Robert!!!!!

The only thing i wish they did BITD was tested it with some pads on it...to me a bike aint complete without some pads.

Did you ever find out if this is THE bike from the magazine??

Thanks alot guys. I definitely had a good time hunting the parts down. As far as knowing if it's the one from the ad? I have no idea, from what I've read,only 5 diamond dropouts PKs were made. I've seen a blue one and a brown, I don't know if there's anymore out there.
