Couple old DB parts for my next build

Hi all,

Just bout finished my GT and have the next build lined up. A DB senior Pro....

The frame, forks and bars are on their way and they are pretty special. I'll get some pics when it arrives....

But in the meantime I have been looking for parts and have managed to find some. Lately I have been trying for as much OG stuff as I can and have also been displaying a jersey with my bikes....which can be very hard to find....

So here are two bits of kit for my next build.....

The Rad Pads in black/silver have been quite hard to find but finally got them..... studs all stamped like they should be...

And for just a little more authenticity, even the foam is stamped...I never knew they did this!!! yikes

And here's a couple of my builds with my recent jersey fetish big_smile  .....

Wow dude...I'm not personally into bikes I can no longer fit well on but those bikes are beautiful! I've never seen a red Harry Leary Turbo before cool


Old School BMX bike collecting is a hobby and New School Retro BMX bike riding is a hobby. Respect the part of the hobby I enjoy and I'll promise to respect and even compliment the part of the hobby you enjoy. Disrespect what I like and I'll disrespect you...simple enough right?

Re: Couple old DB parts for my next build

Very nice!   Just a suggestion would be to change the number on the Turbo to 25, which is Leary's old NBL number


If it has tits or tires, it's gonna give you problems.

Re: Couple old DB parts for my next build

Hi All,

This is what my next build is being based on.....

http://www.os-db.net//reference/Team%20DB/Eddy%20King.png

I was unsure of a couple of parts and thought I'd try my luck and hit up Eddy on Facebook.

Not only did he reply overnight, but he couldn't recall what grips were on the bike and did some research for ME to get the right info!!!

What a champion bloke!!!

Anyway I'm still away for work for another week, but I have this pic stuck on the wall above my desk and just stare at it.

I haven't been this excited about a build for AGES!!!!!

Re: Couple old DB parts for my next build

Ok, so to finish off the parts for this build, I still need:

NOS SR Clamp (all black or black/silver)

NOS Nagaoka fluted seat post

Sunshine Pro-am 36 holes hubs

NOS Oakley F1's in Black/Grey



(Hopefully putting a WTB ad in a Build thread isn't against the rules.....I just figured this thread may get a few more views big_smile )

Re: Couple old DB parts for my next build

Ok, here's a bit of an update. Been busy as with work and family stuff and am only now satrting to get close to being able to build.

Apart from the Phil Spider (and the cranks which need to be painted) everything is NOS or that close it doesn't matter.

I thought about just leaving it as a kit and displaying it, but I like building so I'm doing it!!

Anyway, here's the latest pics. I have some OG Comp III's lined up (fingers crossed) and I know a reasonably short gentleman that just scored the Black/Grey F1's that I need too.......
