  2. Hello, been out of the hobby for 13yrs or so, was poking around the other day and came across this thread and was thinking I still have a total unmolested survivor of one of these bikes. It’s all original except for the grips that were changed out to Oakley 1 when the originals probably wore out, looks like the rear tire was moved to the front when it went bald and like I would have done when I was a kid is removed all the reflectors and chain guard. Other than that, its bone stock. The serial number has me a little baffled because it has no date code in the serial number on the badge, serial is 773591. Back story on this bike is a good buddy of mine was buying a Honda Civic form his aunt and uncle, while removing the car from their garage, he spotted the bike with all his cousins other belongings (he had passed away years prior to this) he asked about it and his aunt said they bought it in 1976 he showed interest it so she gave it to him. He knew I was into the vintage BMX thing so I acquired it and it has been mounted to my Park tool stand in my shop for over a decade. The bike was bought from Aurora cycle here in Seattle. Looks to be well used so it was enjoyed by her son which is cool.

  3. yea i missed it by 10 bucks, oh well.. I thought i would be out bid and since i was not able to see the end......thats the way it gos. The seller measured the top tube length for me and it was 19"
  4. built this back when you could get really good stuff fairly cheap compaired to now
  5. Thanks for the information, I was worried I gave him something that was misrepresented. The wealth of knowlege here rocks.
  6. the quesion is: should it be welded in the middle of the chain stays or near the top. this is the only pic i have so others will be very much apreciated
  7. I traded a profile 24" to a good man and the way the brake bridge was welded on the frame came into question. can anyone please post pics of thier 24" profile brake bridge. If I was taken for a fool when i bought them then I need to make it right with him. thanks
  8. Wow, all that time you spent trying to find an XL, settled for the standard I sold you... then found a nos standard...then found the XL you always wanted and sold me back the standard.....built the replica you wanted to, and all that time there was a mint condition XL in your back yard!!!! awesome find Tom, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Greg
  9. heres a 1976 lrv that i built and sold years ago.
  10. finally finished the quad tonight, cant wait to see how she rides, got a nice fat seat for my fat ass. the ripper is a project i did for my cousin last year to ride with his kids. He Supplied the frame /fork, headset, neck and bars and I did the rest. He liked it so i was happy.
  11. BOMAT 1 your in Everett, thats cool. I live in Lake Tapps and work in Seattle. Greg
  12. thanks, I made them on a 5-axis lathe in one operation (4.5 min each) then had the assembly dept. install the rivets. they are alot thicker than the cool caps and are counter bored to fit nice and snug over the hub and the small portion of the wheel that overlaps the hub.
  13. I made my own for both my sets, they came out good, the blue set went on a set of yellow 24" and the gold went on a set of graphite's. My build will be done this weekend so I'll post it in the riding and racing today forum when i am done. There is a pic of them installed in a show me your prodjects/race bike thread in the before mentioned forum if your interested in what a 7 spoke dress-up cap looks like on a 24" wheel.
  14. the serial on mine is 78-1400- the head tube decal is hard to read, Roc posted a good pic of it in his post on the first page. theres not to many around that are uncracked with the original finish on them so I'll keep it that way. the finish on my frame is not that great but that doesnt matter to me cause its 30 years old, used and survived without being broken then tossd into a dump or scrap pile.
  15. yep thats the f/f I bought from Roc, he's a great guy with an awsome collection
  16. G-Boys are cool, my favorite frame from back in the day.
  17. when my retro profile cranks get here I'll finish putting it together. I have 2 wheelsets for it, but I think I'll use the graphite's.
  18. heres an add from a november 1980 bicycle motocross action
