1992 S&M Holmes

Rare "Murray Stay" Holmes with original chrome and decals. My Grail...

This is one of the rare "Murray Stay" Holmes that were only made for one year, and I was lucky enough to find one in original chrome with the original decals. I actually raced one of these in 1992, so this bike has been on my radar for a few years. It has the early un-drilled forks with sandwich dropouts, and the even more rare chainstay brake bridge.
I built this one up with a lot of same type of parts I had BITD. I'm about 90% done, but would love to eventually get an OG 1" Redneck with the Wedgie Jackson, and some OG Slams.
Frame: 1992 Holmes Forks: 1992 Pitchforks (undrilled with sandwich dropouts)Handlebars: Cyclecraft Fred-Z (uncut)Stem: Polished DK Pro XL ShaftedCranks: GT-stamped Profile 180mmPedals: Crupi Squares (titanium spindles)Sprocket: Profile Racing 44tChain: KMC goldSeatpost: Pyramid LaybackSeatpost Clamp: Tioga SingleSeat: S&M Shield SofaHubs: TNT Revolver 36 (sealed bearing)Rims: Odyssey T-1000Tires: Cheng Shin Comp III StyleHeadset: TiogaPadset: S&M ShieldRace Plate: 1994 State Champion by Hot ShoppeBrakes: Odyssey PitbullBrake Pads: Scott MatthauserBrake Lever Odyssey PitbullGrips: A'ME TriFreewheel: Shimano 15t
Extra touches on this build include red anodized spoke nipples, dice caps by Marino, my actual NBL State Champion plate from 1994, high-polished Pitbull brake and lever, high-polished DK stem, completely restored Crupi Squares with titanium spindles and new sealed bearings for the Profile bottom bracket. This build has been one of the most rewarding for me personally, and this has quickly become one of my favorite daily riders. Because of the nature of older metal, I'm a bit more cautious on this one, but it's perfect for ride-outs and casual cruising. Bunnyhops and manuals are awesome with this bike.
