1997 2 Hip Big Boy

I had one of these frames back in 97-98, and found another in 2011 thanks to the North New Jersey crew.  I had to build frame/fork up as soon as I got it.

This frame has a weird geometry.  It is more like the 84 to 85 Pro Performers..   The head angle is 71, and feels choppered.  The forks feel bent all the time (compared to a normal 74 head angle).
Most parts are era correct, and some parts I may replace with better condition parts as I find them.
As of Dec 2011:
* Frame 1997 2 Hip Big Boy (original stickers, paint)
* Fork Chrome 2 Hip Big Boy with peg bosses (and.. wow has the stickers still too)with a Bully 990 brake plate
* Bars 2 Hip Juice square tubing bar
* Brakes/levers Dia Compe Tech 77's with lock buttons, Dia Compe 990 brakes F/R with Kool Stop Eagle claw pads
* Detangler SST Oryg
* Grips Animal Edwin (finding something from the time)
* Bar ends plastic (finding something better)
* Stem 2 Hip Vise Stem
* Headset Tioga Beartrap 2
* Seat GT Dropnose padded, destroyed
* Seatpost chromoly, and chrome (finding something better)
* Seat clamp Primo Viking
* Hubs/wheels Peregrine Super Pro 48's in beat up shape, but still look nice
* Chain KMC 410 H
* Freewheel ACS Claws
* Chain Tensioners One generic lollypop
* Crankset Profile 175mm cranks
* Sprocket Profile Tri-Fan 44T
* Pedals Peregrine Freestyle
* Tires Odyssey Frequency G 1.75 skinwall tires F/R
Strange Decals...
