    Here is my 1981 Bassett Racing Star Cruiser that I have I just got it from my Dad and it was in storage, I wanted to share it with you all here and let me know what you think. I had it completley check out at the local bike store, bearing, tightened the spokes, checked the tires and I installed the 3-speed shifter (this came on the side with the bike when my dad got it, and was never used, but I installed it, and the bike rides beautifully.

    I don't think I'm going to sell it unless I get a huge offer. I really like the bike and since my Dad gave it to me I kinda want to keep it!

    well their bikes age better then their headers do. lol

    That's a super cool bike! I'd love to have it. Best of all it was made right here in Anaheim, CA.
