Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

thats a clean frame i must say do you have the decals for it to? mine for my trickfox had to be made by a friend i know. i wish you luck on the build man, i'm glad there's still people like us that keep these old school bikes and are able to restore them with close to original condition...i'll be on the lookout for it when you get this cool bike completed....peace

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

i took the original decals off to scan them and have some made.  i also have a set of plain black pads that i want to get printed, but i don't have a logo to copy.

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

Your pic does not show, if these are aero forks. But I have an old BMX Action equipment guide in front of my eyes (October 1983). There is a Silverfox Model SP, that has exactly the same holes in the gusset and dropouts like yours. Maybe they built it like that over three years?!? Even Spider and Sprocket are similar...I would send you a pic if my damn scanner would work under XP :-(

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

Heh, just had a look at an advertisement in a BMX Action from September 86. There is a MT Racing The Fox. They had triangle holes in the Dropouts this time and no gussets. Further absolutely different spider and sprocket, i bet yours is 83!

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

thanks for the info.  they're akisu forks, and the legs are oval, but have a 1/8 inch flat edge in front and back.  i guessed 86 as the year because the first digit in the s/n is a 6, but i hope it's an 81-83.  i'd love to see those pics if/when you could get them up here.  i just finished putting this together today.  i'll take some new pictures tomorrow.

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

Beautiful job!
Here's mine, which apparently has racing history. It came to me in rough shape on damaged coaster skyways and the big CW type bars, with the original grips still on. I guess the bike was bought new and custom parts fitted straight away. Frame number is an 84, as is the team number.
Just needs a new chain and one The Fox sticker

nope, not the frame.  the forks (akisu) legs are oval with a 1/8" flat spot running the length of the legs, in the front and the back.

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

I just purchased a Lotus frame and fork off the evilbay and it appears to be identical to your MT frame. Brake bridge, dropouts, everything except the lotus is candy blue.


In need a ET Kuwahara decal set.

Re: 1983 MT Racing SilverFox

Can anyone tell me how to test and see whether the frame is Magnanese, CroMo or normal steel?
