Found a deal on this frame a few months ago on the museum.  I wish this was a complete but it will work for now. Intrigued with the Bill Bastain history this frame has, you can see where Race Inc. got it's start. The bottom tube bend, the frame gussets and the diamond drop-outs.  Even the top "Airfoil" tube, later used on Cycle Pro Foiler's and a few of Bastain's bastard children.  Another detail to be noted: the quality of the welds are not even close (visually) to those later achieved by Race Inc. 

This is a cool part of BMX history. Looking back at the transition from motorcycle looking bicycles and into what would actually be practical in the real world of BMX.
