Posts I've Made
Posted 30 Jan 2013Yes, Ryan, Lynn had frames custom gussetted during production because of previous failure issues. Seems like most Cook Bros Cruisers I have seen have been repaired at some time.
I think my frame is from the same era, but was repaired or maybe even a mod to prevent s known issue.
I have a feeling the bike was sold new in Austin out of Lynn's shop.
Those serial numbers are just too close.
I am going to continue my research and figure a few things out.
Posted 30 Jan 2013"Steve, you live in Austin right? "
Yes, I am in Austin.
Posted 10 Oct 2012When I rode for Blazer & Mike Maberry, I rode a chrome blazer, but my Dad, Billy Hill, had it chromed. My sister, Shelby, rode a chrome mini Blazer - also chromed by my Dad. Last I knew Randy Niemann had my sisters mini in Austin. I no longer own my chrome Blazer. Our garage burned and the Blazer was a victim of the fire. Neither of the above mentioned frames were decaled after the chroming.
Thanks for all of the information, guys. I appreciate it.
I got the frame Randy had. Mini with sew ups. He told me it had been in a fire.
Randy said you and Shelby raced it.
You want it back?
Posted 12 Sep 2012I got this little dude in Austin. Looks to be same production run as yours, Don. This bike was raced by factory Blazer riders. It was in a house fire at one time, and sports-what I have been told- a Torker fork.
My serial is 480.
Not far from yours, assuming Blazer used a consecutive system.
I bought this frame on Museum. Looks to be made at the same time as the mini frame(s). It has a 19" top tube. Serial #216
Posted 8 Sep 2012I think I figured it out. I was trying to put spokes on the inside of the hub. Realize now the "Race Lace" pattern.
I feel dumb because that was a big part of what made this
Will post some pics when I finish.
