ACE HOLESHOT

Recommended Posts

I would like to start by thanking eveyone and there great comments on Saturday the responce was overwhelming from you guys.

 

This frame was found in a local bike shop on Long Island, it has been hanging from the ceiling and many people including myself had passed it by many times. I went in the shop one Saturday afternoon asked the owner the price and said I would take it. Upon bringing it home I did a little research and there was not much on it. The frame was built as a team bike for Chip and Dales BMX located in New Jersey, upon meeting (please forgive me for forgetting his name, I think it was Pete) at Rockford he was in charge of the development and construction of this frame. I discovered that there were 150 20" frames made and 250 crusiers made.

 

I spent alot of time researching Mid School reading all of the old threads, I purchased a few Mid School Magazines and spoke with some of the Mid School gurus and after getting an idea of how I would like to see the bike built it was and off to the races to finish it for Rockford. Just as a short side note I feel Mid School should have been represented as an award before retro and customs at Rockford but whatever.

 

Most of the parts used on this build were NOS and the only parts that were restored were the bars and power disk, new school parts are the seat, chainring, forks and pedal cages.

I saw the pics from the show but it looks even better in the close ups. Very cool bike with a lot of cool parts. I am impressed. The Holeshot frames aren't that light but they are super freakin cool. Buddah is going to have a cow when he sees that bike.

A Nos red anno Profile Rip Saw first gen would be so sweet on there. Not correct but so would a red Imperial.

 

We as a group need to let the organizers of events know that Mid School needs representation. Often its nothing more than an oversight but if the Mid School group isn't reppin at events its time to step up.

Whhheeeewww...

Very glad to hear you got it back.. and safely.

 

DELTA has screwed me over SOOO many times.. I boycott that airline to the fullest!!!!

They're a terrible company that has ZERO respect for it's customers.

just a recommendation. Avoid Delta when ever possible.

I would have to agree. I had considered the only way for me to make Rockford would be to fly and take a bike with me. Yikes.

Sorry I missed this. Very cool, those frames are so ugly, yet exotic at the same time. Totally feeling the Paul Stop-lite set up. Great build!
