Posted 14 Oct 2012I was at the Octoberfest BMX show today. and walked by this cruiser atleast ten times. figured it was not for sale. then just for the heck of it I asked and here it is.
One question I do have is . are the forks Bassett racing forks . I looked through some pics and some look like Mongoose and some don't. here is a pick of the dropouts.
if not the correct forks any idea what they could be off of???
sorry I will get better pics later.
Posted 5 Oct 2012Picked this one up of the Museum. Just figured it looked like a cool frame set.
Here is all the info I collected about this frame set.
Mega was Brian Fell and Bill Prince's baby...full chromoly frames and forks, built by Fabweld, lasted about a year and a half. Team riders included Andrew Presland, Scott Smith, Marie McGilvary and I think Mike Reardon.
They didn't make very many of them said to be three batches it was less than 300 total.so it's a bit of a rarity. Mega was also infamous for it's "Mega Panel" side mount number plates.
Brian does indeed still work at MCS.
There were 2 sizes, the 125 and the 250. The 125 was the pro size frame and the 250 was the XL, and the forks are identical to Fabweld forks.
Posted 4 Oct 2012100% from the 80's nothing changed as found. looks like it never aged. I will take some of my own pics of this in the AM. these are the pics the guy sent me. I just got home. it midnight LOL
Posted 23 May 2012My son and I took in our first bike show together. he had a blast. He comes up to me and say's Dad I am going to get one of those trophies. I told him it is not that easy that he has to Win one. Not sure he understood all that well. but I figured I plan to attend more shows and he will most likely go with me, so I picked something up he could make his own and try to win one. My Issue is he is 5 and when he actually does see what I picked up will he ever get over the part were he doesn't get to ride it ??? I plan to add to this post with pic's and stories along the way. feel free to comment good or bad. here is his starting point.
