Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Yes the last early S&S frame and fork I saw sold for $750.00.Think it was an 80 or 82 not sure.They have a cult following being they make the after market Harley parts now.Rare frame set.Grab it if it's cheap and the real deal.

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Don't think that is a S&S serial number.

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

99% sure that is not a S&S. Chain guard tab and kick stand plate. Two things you do not see on any S&S's that I know of.

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

I have a frame and fork that looks like an S&S 26".  I have been told it was made by TBC. Taiwan Bicycle Co.  There is one in the museum.  May be a match for yours.I

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Can any S&S owners chime in on a serial verification?

I remember seeing an old ad for them and they had chain guards on in the pic.

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Don't remember serial number on my chrome S&S but is on inside of drop.  Also no chainguard tabs or kickstand mount.  My knockoff S&S., I don't remember the location of serial but also has chainguard and kickstand mounts.  Was told that TBC made these frames for a variety of different brands.  I believe the very damaged headtube sticker on the knockoff S&S reads B&B. 

Here are some photos of the knockoff S&S.

I only have one photo of the real S&S.  It doesn't show much detail but here it is.  Chrome.  No tabs.  Both top tubes are curved.

U sure its not a 26"?


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

If the price is right, I'd go 4 it. You can always remove the tabs and kickstand mount.

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

I don't think it's S&S, maybe TBC like danthrift said...

Fork is Akisu...or Wald. Same as the Red knockoff above.

My S&S Newport also has a 5 digit serial and the chainstay "kickstand" bridge behind the BB is a different design.


Wanted: black Takagi Cr-Mo 180x24 crank, Mint Suntour 42 chainring in blue, Cook Bros original fork & flag decals

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Looks like the seat stays on yours are more straight than the ones on mine. Also, your headtube looks to be 7" tall and mine was about 5-5.5? Pretty close though!

Is it heavy like mild steel or light like chromoly?

Re: S&S cruiser 24"

Pretty sure that wasn't an S&S but, a 24" strandie for the right price would have been fun.  Tuffs and Grab-ons and such-n-such.   Keep looking, they're out there.  I picked-up a Laguna cruiser off CL for crazy cheap.  Dude was convinced it was an Emory.
