WAITING FINALLY PAID OFF......... OBSCURE SCORE :)

This obscure BRACKENS frameset was sitting as a complete with all incorrect era parts on it. My eyes had been set on it for the last two weeks since my buddy Willie D. Pointed it out to me. After a good amount of patience, talking and research, its finally mine.

I'm not sure if the paint is original but it sure looks to be. Im not sure, but the color is old school looking. If it was repainted it would have been a long time ago because of the caked dust on the paint as well as the old school Campagnolo stickers placed on the head tube and down tube.  You can tell they have been there for a long time.... Someone drew circles around the rear drops with a black sharpie to make sure they put it in the same spot. lol

This BRACKENS Serial is on the drive side rear drop out. Serial is C011, very low, I would love to know more info on these. Is this the 11th BRACKENS ever made? I don't really know anything on these BRACKENS, anything would be great.

I hope you enjoy. smile

Cheers,
Sean

They have to be as the drops are the same and the weep holes are in the the same place as mine.
Flip em over and look at the underside of the steer tube, can you see welds where they doubled up the steer tube?

Re: WAITING FINALLY PAID OFF......... OBSCURE SCORE :)

Newer than 87 with the bb gussets, right? Maybe a '90 with the 0?

On second thought, #11 CW-made frame? That's my guess.

Of course, I don't know the difference between my ass and a hole in the ground big_smile

Re: WAITING FINALLY PAID OFF......... OBSCURE SCORE :)

I'm also taking a wild guess here as S and M are made locally in the South Bay Area as well as BRACKENS believe also. Very close to each other. I think Tommy had some of his first forks made from S and M? These are definitely old S and M forks. I also know S and M started in the late 80's as did BRACKENS.

Re: WAITING FINALLY PAID OFF......... OBSCURE SCORE :)

It looks like a cruiser frame to me. Fork is definitely S&M.


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

It is a cruiser frame and fork, the person I got it from had it built with new era cruiser parts and they said they were willing to just sell the frame and fork for a decent amount less then the complete price. So I just grabbed the frame and fork.
