1996 S&M Holmes

One "HARDCORE" S&M.  I call it "Johnny"...  LOL wink

I have been telling my buddy Perry (Kcdirtbro54) for a few years now that when I figured out what I wanted, I was going to do a mid-school build.  But I wasn't sure what direction to go as it's a bit out of my era.  Then last year at our Old School BMX Ride my wife showed up with Tracy Rice (owner and the manufacture of Hardcore Machine Works BITD) and gave me a NOS 1-1/8" Hardcore mid-school brick stem for my birthday.  I was floored (she earned a lot of "cool points" that day, lol).  I also had a set of NOS Hardcore axle nuts and NOS Hardcore seat guts I had picked up.   A short time after that my local buddy Mike (Da Missle) hooked me up with a Hardcore seat clamp on a trade deal of sorts (thanks bro) as well as hooked it up on some PMC Hubs.  Now I had enough parts to seriously consider a build.  After chatting with Tracy about what he used to ride BITD, he mentioned a Holmes he had so I thought that might be a fitting platform to "hang" all these parts on - plus the long TT was appealing for a tall guy like myself.  The hunt was on and after about 6 months, this is what I ended up with. 
I kinda fell in love with this beast while I was building it.  It comes in at just under 30 lbs. and is a total mid school BEAST.   It looked naked without the pads, so they HAD to go on.  It rides crazy smooth and is ready for a bit of trail action.  Hope my mid school homies can enjoy it.

Another fine build. I have a retro Holmes with threaded headset but your set up with Hardcore bits really sets it off.

thanks dude.  this thing is ROCK solid and rides super smooth.  there's a couple small things i want to change, but i'm loving how it came out.  and we do love the Hardcore parts around these here parts.  lol smile   this whole bike was essentially built up around that HC stem.

Re: 1996 S&M Holmes

So I went up to the Old School Race and Bike Show in Topeka last weekend and the Holmes snagged best of show.  Which was pretty awesome.
But the icing on the cake was the Trophy.  A Van Halen themed 88 Mongoose Stylist that the track had restored.

I have some white spinner pegs that would work on that, but they probably aren't minty enough for that sucker.  Looks wicked clean...

dude i was poking around for some the other day.  lol 
i put a white seat post in it yesterday (laid back) and it looks much better.  i bet i have tried to give that Pacific freestyle post to 20 people and haven't had any takers yet.
and oddly, if you flip the post upside down and pit it in backwards, it will hold a beer can. lol
