The seat doesn’t look like it would be that comfortable either!Was my late Aunt Betty's bike. in the 1960s her and my uncle use to tent camp on vacation to escape the Summer heat of Milwaukee. My late brother was in process to rebuild when he died. For unknown reason bike has 2 identical front wheels (no drive hub).
How much is a good wench going for these days (tee hee)?I've built about a dozen bikes with the spanner nut headsets, three in the past few months. I finally bought a Hozan C-205 lockring wench.
If you wanted to part with that fork, keep me in mind good sir1993 Hampton Cruiser. Chop chop!

10 speed. Never saw a dork disk that wasn't toasted by the sun, must of been kept inside. Look at that chain and sprockets, Was this thing ever ridden?
I think that's probably the answer. Had its seat stolen in the first year and sat in the garage/basement ever since.With no saddle, how could it have been riden? I would never ride a bike "bareback!"

I think the serial number location puts it after '85. I would have guessed '88, but I can't find any '88s with that graphics package.
Good find, regardless.
Good eye, RG. I found a date on the rear hub "H88", which I believe is Aug. 1988. For the rear hub anyways.Found an '89 with a similar graphics package, but it is a 12spd. I think that probably makes yours an '88. Sport LX looks to have been made from '79 to '89.
Verrt, we will never know the true story, but I do like yours...I think that's probably the answer. Had its seat stolen in the first year and sat in the garage/basement ever since.
