  1. Never seen any pics or videos of him riding, but Phil Anselmo clearly had some connection to bmx...
  2. Probably just an attempt to keep the work involved in making them (and the resultant cost) to a minimum.
  3. I still need to get pics of my Torker. How many bikes is too many? LOL

    1984 Profile

    Was that a factory painted frame?
  5. 1997 Kastan Pro XL Adam Richard’s factory issued race bike This is the last bike Adam had before he died. Sadly, it is neither original finish nor his original yellow bike. This is the white bike that Snap magazine did a bike check on. Adam’s brother had it refinished in black, so I decided to redo the yellow bike (which Adam was well known for riding and he destroyed in 1996) since original finish was no longer an option. The frame, rims and spokes are all from Adam’s bike. The rest I had to piece together since his brother parted the bike out.

  8. Redlines COMPLETE bikes were made overseas beginning in 1980, that's true. However, they still continued to produce standalone framesets in the U.S. through 87, when Linn sold the company to SBS and they moved pretty much all frame manufacturing to Taiwan.
  9. Odyssey brakes sucked. They flexed like crazy. I used them for a week and went straight back to my 901s.
  10. Well, you had a Torker-made Haro question anyway...
  11. I got 7 right. Don't see how knowing when the Oz site was founded factors into old bmx, but mostly it was good. Some of the questions (like the Tuff # and Torker sn) were kinda specialized (I dislike Tuffs but love Torkers so I'm glad I got THAT one right) but overall I say good one!
  12. Not for nuthin', but if you drop $600 on a bike frame and don't know what it is you're buying, and can't be bothered to research it, you deserve to get taken.
  13. T2 serial number means it's an 82.
