1983 Kuwahara Laserlite

<h2 class="mosun">THE RED LASER</h2><br>
by MOSUN at Vintage Steel (Bmx-Rider Decals)<br><br>

The flagship 1983 Kuwahara Laserlite with oval tubes in custom Red parts - Almost Everything FACTORY but in the red equivalent!


And to top it off... the rare Original IRC 80x Tires are the ICING on the cake!
 
Factory Correct decals from BMX-Rider.com!

HIGHLIGHT: T3J - One of the LAST un-stamped early October '83 Laserlites with oval top and bottom tubes. Right before they started stamping them in Mid October. A must have in every collection.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL: All parts are factory correct like the Original Hatta Headset with original bearings & hardware, Original IRC tubes with the &quot;Pacfic&quot; Valve Caps and rim strips, Original Dia Compe caliper bolt end caps and all part nuts, washers, and bolts.
 
All parts are N.O.S., original or re-furbished in Mint condition with the exception of the pad set.

Re: 1983 Kuwahara Laserlite

Can you do a little more, not really impressed:/ presentation costs as much as the bike itself jk


Newbie...
No front brakes, except for freestyle.
Adjust your seat and bars, so it looks like you actually ride.
Use cruiser bars on cruisers.
No laybacks on cruisers either, jeez.

Re: 1983 Kuwahara Laserlite

Didn't the Laserlite come with sealed Suntour hubs? The machined looseball hubs were KZ1 era weren't they?

Yes they did come with Sealed Suntour hubs, I meant to write "alteration"... I've revised that from "factory".. thanks for catching that.  So many parts to keep track of. lol.
