Scored like a rock star today

Ok, more like a bar band drummer which ain't too bad.  Ended up with 3 bikes jammed into a Grand Prix!

Found and oldschool walGoose at lunch.  Has f/r bulldogs and overall not a bad looking bike.  Taiwan s/n no loop, but for 20 leafs of cabbage I figured it was a score

Then, I was feeling frisky on my way home so I stopped at a place where I had been eyeballing a couple of bikes.  One was a craptastic Schwinn Falcon.  But it had Tuffs and decent bars (Hoffman Jumping) and cranks.  Odd stem, with a Standard stem pad (I think?).  I was looking to score it for $50....but then I asked about the other one.  They definitely had parts traded between them, maybe to disguise what they were?  No idea but it looked interesting.

It's a red frame w killer SE-type welds.  I grabbed a tape and measured a 22" tt.  SN is faint but reads K7I0014??  Nice sprocket and ody cranks (powerbites, other??bites?), Hoffman stem and some kick ass feeling bars (Hoffmans maybe?)  D130 hoffman forks.  I think the frame is AL, it's light as heck but I did not do a magnet test yet.  I'm pretty rusty at midschool, so maybe you guys can name the frame?

Oh, and the front rim was from the Falcon mad but the rear is a bulletproof strung to BFR cool

Dude made me a cash deal for both that I couldn't walk away from, but only if I took them with me.  Luckily he threw in a couple wrenches, my daughters 16" was already in the trunk from our trip to the skatepark this weekend, and the 'Goose was crammed into the back seat.  I normally carry a few tools for just such an occurence, but I didn't have em for some reason today.

I will again spout my affection for 90* swing rear doors on the last run of GP's.  Very helpful when scoring for those who don't drive pickups or SUVs.

Pics to come, I was late to my kids skating party so here I am.   But he was cool w it.  big_smile

Post now edited...phone posting made it a garbled mess...sorry fellas.  Pics loading now....I will move a few to the Name It section also.

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: Scored like a rock star today

more pics in "Name It!"

I don't know what half this shit it is lol

The goose was a no brainer, but all I knew on the others was that I wanted the Tuffs and a lot of the parts looked solid.

Then when I measure the TT, I knew I had to have it.

Re: Scored like a rock star today

Yeah they're the newer black widows.  Not sure on the hubs.    Not sure if its an se but the rear chain stay does.

I would say nice score.   What's the length on the cranks.

Re: Scored like a rock star today

175mm, I'll try to get a pic of inside the arms

It looked SE to me too, although not at first.  I bet I've looked at this bike 10x before today and never noticed it had SE lines.

Hubs are 1 cruddy schwinn from the Falcon and one Bulletproof.

If it is....well, I've been wanting a long SE lately so the score got even sweeter.  Like, would have paid double.

Looks like my T1 project may be heading to a FS section near you all very soon.
