Race Inc. BMX Bike - Blue

race inc. bmx bike - blue - side view

This Race Inc. BMX bike had a blue anodized aluminum Race Inc. frame, a probably-chromoly old school BMX fork, Takagi 175mm chromoly cranks, a Sugino 42t alloy "snowflake" sprocket", and blue anodized 20 x 1.75" Araya 7x rims with Sunshine high-flange unsealed hubs.

The last photo shows the Race Inc. the way I found it. I replaced the blue anodized BMX handlebars and worn-out white imitation Mushroom grips with chrome BMX handlebars and black grips. The tires that were on the bike belonged on a vintage banana-seat 3-speed, so I installed a used set of vintage knobby BMX tires. After a cleaning, tune-up and stance adjustment, I wound up with what you see here: a worn but respectable Race Inc. that was tight, light and fun to ride.
