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.

Build your bikes the way you want. Always looking for 85/86 dyno but don't always have money for them.
