The brake bridge and the chain stay gusset is cool. Did they have two different welders working on that bike at once? Some of the welds look nice... others look like garbage. The dropouts look pretty beefy and that little lightning bolt is cool.

 

Interesting...

The one that is in the museum has a few comments on it.Someone is saying that it was made by BOSS.The down tube is teardrop.The top tube is oval shape.I just checked a Boss bmx that I have and the seat stay connection/design to the seat post/top tube is identical.This thing looks like a REDLINE,SKYWAY and BOSS all made into one frame.

I also saw the Boss influence/styling on the chain stay brace.

If the serial number on the back fork isnt the same on every thunderbird then this is the finished version of this bike.

Nice! Where did you get that? Never heard of the brand before

No way Carlo would have put his name on a bike with welds of that quality. But the single chain stay brace is styled and shaped like the plates Boss used on their double chain stay brace.

real interesting frame.

nobody seems to know anything about them and the serial # looks as if they were making a bunch. probably a foreign company.
