Am open to bids and will ship

Now THAT's got my attention!! Look at the low-slung tt on that baby!! What's the story behind it and the rationale for the 81ish dating?

I believe it's a Patterson with Boss braces.

At that time Patterson stopped paying and started the PR200/240 series made by GT so I think this is xs patterson parts with Boss dropouts, brake mount, and chainstay plates.

If you hold it side by side with my Patterson pro it's identical except this parts.

 

Dropout is marked just like a Patterson.

The guy I got it from painted it and said it's nickel under the paint

From my research the serial numbers are in order as made. All they change is the prefix letter to tell which model it is.

My Patterson mini is M0106

Avalanche is A0099

Pro am mini M0149 (has patty brace and brake mount)

Elite loop E1178 (same patty braces)

What do you guys think?

Microline forks or chrome Boss forks?

I'm going to have the paint stripped off the frame and fork IMG_0643.JPGIMG_0644.JPG

The Boss forks for me, though it's going to look great whichever way you go, especially if the nickel's in good condition.

 

The 81ish date ties in with the Patterson bloodline, though I was under the impression that the serial numbers weren't so logically stamped.

This  is cool. I knew Carlo Personally back in early 80s. My stepdad would give Carlo Acetylene welding tanks in exchange for frames. I owned his 23 rd frame built. Cracked it, Carlo created those Rear stay plated behind the Seat Tube post section .

There is a BOSS sticker on the frame but since this was bought second hand I am not sure it really is a BOSS Frame. The seat post comes through the top tube which is shaped to fit the seat stays behind the seat post. I have been looking online at hundreds of BMX bikes and the only one that comes close is an old school DK Kasten. The frame had cantilever brake mounts which a previous owner cut off. Has anyone seen a BOSS frame with this design? See pictures.

Sprocket is Tuf-Neck, stem is Profile, and pedals are Odyssey Triple Trap. Brakes are new school BOX. I have Dia-Compes brakes but not digging the gold right now
