Re: Standard, S&M or what?

This was pm'd  to me...  does that serial number say HXL? if so, it will have a 21" top tube, and would probably be a holmes XL. they only made those the first few years, which would make it right around late 2000/2001. after that, from 2002-2003, they just started calling them dirtbike XL's. hope that helps

With the feedback that I have been given, I can say confidently say that this is a 2000'ish Dirt bike / Holmes classic.

Ok, I will settle for an early 2000's Holmes classic.

Re: Standard, S&M or what?

There are a few of these frames in the museum under Dirt bike and Holmes.  I am guessing that the only difference would be the serial#s and length's.

Correct.  Dirt Bikes are 20.5, Holmes are 21".
