The all Boss BMX thread

Recommended Posts

Im pretty sure this thread dosent already exist and I feel its way overdue, especially with all the lack of info on Boss BMX so lets start a great database here for a well deserving company.

 

Please contribute any photos or knowledge of anything Boss BMX. If submitting a bike or frameset please include the serial #, the year if you know it, and any special information that might be helpful.

 

Also I decided to start this thread here in mid-school as Boss didnt seem to really take off until 85 or so, even though I beleive they were building frames in the early 80s.

This is my 1st Boss Cruiser. Dont know the exact year. The forks are ELF. Frame has a flat brake bridge with 3 holes (including the hole for the brake). The serial is on the right rear dropout. It T0439.

This is my current Boss 24. The big difference between this and my other is this one has a round brake bridge and the headtube flare is different, more squared off and smaller compared to the black one. Serial is 29051, stamped on the right rear dropout. It might be a 1990.

Rob maybe Spur can dig through the threads but Darren Chan had a pretty detailed history on Boss/Panda/L&S and they also did the early Patterson's frames to.

I just can't remember what thread it was buried in. I think it's been in the last year or year and a half.

Ive searched quite a bit but dont remember coming across that thread. Everything Ive found has been pieces here and there, lots of it speculation. Im gonna see if I cant dig that one up and post the link to it in here.

Oh yeah, so that happened.

 

Well there is a big piece of info on Boss that I was looking for. Apparently Ive already read it too - and it wasnt all that long ago. Im gonna go burn another, or am I already stoned? Hmm this is all very confusing....

 

:blink:

 

Thanks Shinburger for re-introducing me to one of my own threads through one of my new threads. Please remind me of them the end of next week! :cheers:

Most excellent thread Rob, I think we were due for a Boss thread. Here are some rare goodies from Darren's collection (with text regurgitated from older posts because I am too lazy this morning.)

 

Trevor Pigott's old Boss frame. Notice the unique chainstays. Cecil Johns and Trevor both had frames made from Columbus Tubing. According to Darren this thing is very light for a Boss, around 4 lbs. Also has graced the pages of Snap magazines with Trevor at the helm.

Boss Prime Time, not so rare, but this happens to be one of Steve Veltmans old rides.

Boss "Cecil" Frame- from Darren "The "Cecil" frame did not personally belong to him (Cecil Johns). It was his geometry. It was one I got directly from Carlo. Back end is shorter than stock."

Ronnie Anderson Boss "U-NO" Frame- From Darren "the u-no frame was Ronnie's personal frame. He gave it back to Carlo some time ago. It has the short back end like Cecil's yet a super long front end, like over 22.75 top tube."
