Re: 1987 General Osborn Pro

Here's a pic of my OP - just finished her this summer.

It's in the same vein, and obviously "R.L.-inspired", but yours is really a phenomenal recreation of R.L.'s ride, dougattic!

Very nice, love seeing these General's!  Your F/F appears to be in beautiful shape. Where you located at? We could get all three Red Generals in one pic on one of next summers rides. Kmpap and myself keep missing each other to grab a shot of our bikes together.big_smile

Re: 1987 General Osborn Pro

Hi everyone! So I rode professional freestyle back when I was 13-18 years old. In 1987 I had one of the first frames RL Osborn released as one of my sponsors was General and Peregrine (I still have my jersey). So I tricked out my bike from the year 1987-1990 until I stopped riding and went off to college. My little brother took over my bike for a few years and unfortunately took the 100psi tires off of the original concave Preregrine 48's so I replaced with a set of white kenda tires. My bike still has some great rare vintage parts from the 80's still on it; Haro wrap around flip up forks, General finger pad grip seat, Diacomp locking brake set, Hutch seat clamp, Tioga snake seat post, Haro knee saver bars, concave Preregrine 48's, Peregrine 3 piece cranks and Compact Disc sprocket, Odyssey rotor and cables, etc.

I have read it's like the unicorn of vintage BMX Freestyle bikes...but it has been hanging in my garage for 20 years and needs a new home... What is it worth?!?!?! Any idea?!?!
