Skyway surprises with a Black Gold T/A

26 03 2013

I was caught by surprise this weekend when I spotted the teaser photos of the yet-to-be released, limited edition, “BLACK GOLD”  24-inch T/A frame, fork and bar combo.

The parts are powder coated in black with a gold sparkle clear coat.

(Which you can see better in this closeup of the fork below.)

The gold sparkle is supposed to give the kit components a cool look in the sun (I guess we’ll have to see more photos to make that call).

Anyway, a pretty interesting departure from a company that counts old-school aficionados as their bread and butter.

I wonder what old-school purists will think about this move by Skyway…heck, I’m still getting my head around the idea of a Skyway T/A frame powder coated black (not to mention, the gold sparkles!).

What do you think?

The story behind these was there were a few white frame kits that had paint blemishes from the factory and these were redone in a very limited run. carries them.
