  1. It is literally an Akisu BMX bike. Akisu made parts and frames for a lot of manufacturers but also put out some stuff under their name. Popular overseas but no so much in the USA.
  2. Well I've got 15 unbuilt frame sets but I'm not sure. I truly think first I'm going to redo the JMC DY build. I hate gold which is why I parted out the PK but the parts on the DY kinda fell in my lap. Want to redo all the parts in silver / black. Also have an 80 Race Inc RA7 with Foiler top tube that I need to build again as well as an 83 Race Inc RA10 and an 82 Star Products I just got.
  3. From their FB... FBM started out as a crew. Just some friends stoked on bikes. Through our curiosity and bike riding fueled smiles, we ended up as a full fledged bike company. Unfortunately, as of January 1st we have closed the machine shop and FBM will no longer manufacture bikes. This has been an unbelievably tough decision and we explored multiple options to maintain business as usual but we simply aren’t able to keep moving forward under existing model. That being said, we can’t thank everyone enough for being a part of FBM and helping us get this far in the world. The FBM Machine Shop opened in 2001 and built some of the best parts in BMX for 18 amazing years. You helped us build fun and share the message of community, positivity and DIY good times and we appreciate the support more than I even know how to express. And since we started as a a crew, some day we will finish as a crew. At it’s core FBM is built around friendship, and the spirit of FBM will live on forever, in our hearts, as a lifestyle and as an idea. The heart of FBM is the people and that will never change. But FBM isn’t just for the people, it IS the people. What we’ve all done collectively has been pretty powerful and inspiring! The Road Goes on forever and the party never ends… With the utmost gratitude. -Steve P.S. - Please share some stories of FBM stoke, lets see if we can inspire the next generation!
  4. Eh...... time to rotate stock.
  5. Just sold the Quad and PK Saturday. Time to start on this years builds.
  6. Well by that serial with no pictures I'm going to guess it is a 2008 Retro PK Ripper made in China. This thread was about SE Racing as an American owned company. That company folded in Oct 1999 and has been owned by a Chinese company since 2000 that didnt actually put the brand back in business until 2003. The company was named ASI (also owned Fuji) but ASI went bankrupt in 2019 so I'm not sure who the mother brand is now. Post a pic of your bike or email me at brianhaysbmx@yahoo.com
  7. Not sure why you guys don't completely disassemble a bike for a well deserved cleaning. Those forks are FAR from rough. Take it apart. Do an OA or vinegar bath for 4 or 5 hours. That rust will literally wipe right off. the decals will be completely unharmed. Just make sure you then soak in straight water and dry with air to get the acid out of the forks and tubes. This GHP was COVERED in rust when I got it. Wayyyyy worse than this CBR. I disassembled, OA bathed for 4 hours and then washed in a tub of water and blew it all out and polished it all with neverdull.
  8. ^^^^ ya, no shame in having to refinish that. It is spectacular!!!
  9. 1984 ALL original Raleigh F7000fs 1982 SE Racing PK Ripper 1983 Navajo Racing Warrior Pro 1984 JMC Darrell Young Design 1993 SE Racing Quad Angle ALL finishes and decals are original (except the DY fork and bar decals are from jmc.com). All parts are original survivor condition
  10. No black Tech 3 yet? There was one on Museum and one on Ebay too.
  11. Ya, I asked Shane a couple days ago if he had heard anything. I didnt text you because I know you dont text at work. I had six entries done and photo'd for it but it's all good. Actually sold one of the entries I had ready last night. Like you said, there hasn't been a ton of interest. Take this year off. Maybe next year....or maybe not. Definitely not the end of the world. I've got the computer knowledge of a fence post, so Im no help. Merry Christmas. It's been a busy six months or so for you. Enjoy the holidays.
  12. That would be amazing. How can the rest of us see it?
  13. I remember an email convo I had with the OM a few years back where I sent him a pic of a loopy Quad frame and a loop PK frame and told him that it was found local from a kid who said he had a Hot Shop sponsorship from SE in 1980 and Scot replied "well yes, that was Jay Becker". I was like WOW, yep that was exactly who it was. Dude was amazing.
  14. This thread is six years old and I'm pretty sure broke L345 sold his entire collection and got out of collecting 3-4 years ago. You may try contacting Waza / Warren Eales in Oz. He is capable of doing all sorts of BMX decals.
