I'm going to upload my pics along with the sellers pics, just so there is lots angles, even some repeats.
Found this on ebay and snagged it with a quick BIN. I haven't been able to find anything on these in a Pro size, only juniors so far. Any information anyone can add here would be helpful. I have read the history of the break dance/freestyle crew, but they don't appear to have anything to do with the framesets. Any history, ad scans, pics of other ones, please add to the thread!

Cardboard lords that is made mention of on the bmx museum has nothing to do with this company. It was started by a couple guys that began making number plates and stickers as a way to get from national to national. Eventually they came up with the concept for frames with a strong mtb influence. They were one of the first to have threadless cantis and 26.8mm seat tubes. The emancipator frames used ritchey logic tubing while the liberators were aluminum. The liberators were the first aluminum monocoque design based off mtbs. Besides frames the made stems and forks that used a manitou crown and cromo legs. Colors were all the bass boat sparkle colors, green red blue black purple and of course chrome and polished. I dont think the pro sized liberators caught on because they broke under hard riding. Eventually they closed up because they couldnt keep up with demand so ive been told. Ive heard there was some pro sized liberators out there but there cant be many, this is the first one ive ever seen. I only wish i beat you to it. Good grab my friend.
