Karpiel Disco Volante

$250 GBP
Karpiel Disco Volante frame for sale. If you know the name you know the frame! It's in great condition, the front end has been been fully sandblasted and the rear swing arm was polished up to look chrome. Comes with all the links and shock as shown and this frame is 1st gen, so no bearings here, all self lubing bushes and cylinders to connect the frame together. A real classic.

Hmm, pretty sure that model Disco Volante (we are looking at for sale), was made in America BEFORE he moved his workshop if the history is true..

To The Point - Bushings
I was really confused why my Karpiel Disco Volante didn't have bearings and just gaping holes through the pivots, but then I found out about a month ago that they were bushings...my frame was built around 2001. Finding new replacements is hard though. Not many places that do the exact measurement I need. - Even on Igus..

Now I have seen the orange wear away after use, I am dubious about getting them in a certain colour...but I really want blue ones - but not if they will wear away! Or will it look cool? Who knows...

Another Disco with bushings! I thought mine was rare or something because there are not many pictures of Disco's with bushings instead of bearing in the pivots. I was wrong! Though it is still rare and I think its a 1st gen thing.
