    Toro, looks like a Crupi or Redline style to me. Found these on ebay...Redlines. There are knock offs available as well. Try JBI.org , go to Products, Pedals, BMX.

    There’s no brand name on the pedals but it looks like either an N or a Z on the bearing cap[​IMG]

    A bit of progress today, a week of drying time and the paint is almost hard enough to work on the bike, [​IMG] tapered bearing headset from pork chop Bmx [​IMG] one 10mm spacer and the steer tube is the right length [​IMG] I left the front fork thingy black on purpose for contrast [​IMG] a locking steer tube nut just cuz it looks cool [​IMG] and my $10 GT swap meet stem [​IMG] I’m gonna use a quick release for the seat post since you guys seem to like the seat low for pictures [​IMG] but I can’t ride that way. Finally I installed the axle with flats and greased the hub bearings [​IMG] and ended up with this for the days work [​IMG] I might actually finish this on time

    Wow, dude! You are doin' this shiny right!

    I have always liked your style, how you visualize and put builds together. But usually there is a fair amount of rust present (two-time winner of the OddJob Award) and that always turns my head.

    This one has a high cool factor, rust or not. :thumbsup:

    I guess I can do that next... used the same idea on my fire arrow a few build offs ago, start with a cartoonishly gigantic cruiser bar [​IMG] and cut the bent part off [​IMG] instant race bike bar [​IMG], [​IMG] gotta have somewhere to sit [​IMG] and I found a pair of pointy valve caps in the clutter that is my cellar [​IMG] tonight’s progress, getting closer [​IMG]

    Thanks, it’s from a diamond frame huffy 3 speed, wouldn’t fit anymore when I put on the exercise bike sprocket. I cut it and painted it to fit this bike, pics soon...

    I’m calling this finished, test rode it last night and the only issue is the quick release doesn’t tighten enough to keep the seat post from spinning, I’ll replace it with this titanium bolt from one of my old mountain bikes after I ride it around town tomorrow and take some pictures , [​IMG], now I can reveal my favorite part of this bike that I’ve been hiding, thanks to my friend Stevil , a NOS Dana 3 speed I planned and built this bike around this gearbox. Hope you guys like it [​IMG][​IMG]

    Schultzie, you've done it again! I've never owned one of those Dana 3 Speed set ups, but it looks cool on this build for sure. Don't forget to take a ride video so we can see this baby in action!

    Great color combos and parts mix on this one!
