U.S Boss is back for 2012

Yes you heard it right,U.s boss is back for 2012 this time with aluminum Boss hogg frames.I just got off the phone with Boss owner about 30 mins ago.These aluminum frames will be american made.Right now the proto type will be back from heat treating this week than adding the paint and decals. The next frame will be serial #2 with 10 being made in the first batch.10 frames will be made at a time as of right now.These are not retro frames but race frames.The cost isnt factored yet but he's thinking $450. I believe 20 inch frame will be in the future. I will post more information as i get it and will post pics when i get them. I will be ordering parts for my frame and will post pics when it done. As a bike dealer im trying to sell these frames.

Thermal count is rising, In perpetual writhing. The primordial ooze, And the sanity they lose. Awakened in the morning, To more air pollution warnings. Still we sleepwalk off to work, While our nervous systems jerk. Pretending not to notice, How history had forebode us. With the green house in effect, Our environment was wrecked. Now, I can only laugh, As I read our epitaph. We end our lives as moles, In the dark of DAWN PATROL

Sorry to thread jack. Boss coming is cool, especially moving forward with a NEW race frame.

Just read through all that. Most assume the JMC will automatically be a retro which is a shame. Just because a name has been around for a while, everyone assumes retro. hmm

Who owns Boss anyway?

Thanks JC82, I just remember Jim saying he had no intentions on making a come back. I guess the son in law has new intentions and Jim has decided to follow. I wish them the best in their new endeavor......

Re: U.S Boss is back for 2012

So just to be sure Boss and L&S are not together right?  I've seen L&S frames on VintageBMX for a while.  I forget the story behind the realtionship but the frames and parts look the same to me
