Wouldn’t it be nice … to win a Cobra. This is the 2015 prize bike, an early 80s Cobra BMX made in Toowoomba. Everyone that comes along to Pushies Galore is in the running to win this glorious bike. Just make sure to put your entry in at the Info Tent.

This bike has been a collective effort. The paint was provided by Roberto’s Custom Powder at Morningside, powder coating the frame and fork. In Roberto’s words, he took the following approach:

The Cobra frame and fork had already been powder coated by the previous owner and showed all the signs of a basic industrial job, heavy orange peel and rust pitting in a boring off the shelf blue. The guys wanted a Madison style candy green for the giveaway Cobra with the highest quality finish. We stripped the frame, repaired the cosmetic imperfections and returned a stunning candy green frame and fork to the Pushies Galore guys ready to assemble. 

Give Roberto a call to talk about your next bicycle project on (07) 3899 9832.

Don from Oxley Cycles contributed the seat, seat post, rims, cranks, crankset, tyres and tubes.

Steve from Craftworx Custom Wheels supplied the spokes and laced up the wheels.

And Glynn from Pro Sixty Five contributed the pad set, remaining parts and did the build.

All of these great businesses have donated their time, effort and gear to make one lovely bicycle. If you have a restoration project, be sure to give them a bell.

Make sure you’re in the running to win it on 12 July – the winner will be announced around 2pm. You need to be there to claim the prize.
