A question for the classic BMX guys.

I need to find out what this bike is and have been having some trouble. Now that I am on here I am hoping maybe someone could help me out.
























Please be patient I am still uploading pics.

Looks like an early 80s Race Inc.

Race Inc. was one of the few companies that made aluminum frames (lots of really heavy and beautiful heli-arc welds), and it was a high-end, but fairly uncommon bike.

The components look pretty nice (KKT lightning pedal? Araya rims? Sunshine or Suntour hubs? Sugino or Suntour cranks?)

That was a pretty nice bike in its day.

Thanks for the little trip down memory lane. I had one (that I bought used) in about 1982.
