Perhaps this has already been answered?

Were the steel FMF frames made by the same fabricator as the aluminum units?

Bill Bastian/ Race Inc. made the alloy frames and Jere Kirkpatrick or one of his employees at Fabrications by Jere in Venice CA made the steel frame.

That R&R info is very interesting. The first real-deal BMX frame I had was an R&R, but it was the one that had the teardrop shaped down tube. 

I always thought R&Rs looked very sleek and racey.

Just saw another thread about the R&R... the one I had was called the Smoker. I have some photos somewhere...

Cool forks. Did they have any date code stamp or makers mark? Just curious if FMF made them or made for them. I haven’t found any info about it. 

No makers marks that I recall.

Personally, I think they would have made them in house....but that's a wild guess!
