1987 Zeronine Pro XL

Sweet find!

Found this online in another city, my cousin that lived there went and got it for me and sent it back with his sister who lives near to me. Ended up that my cousin used to ride BMX with and play football with the guy I got this bike from...small world! He got this frame as is from another friend who used to race for Zeronine BITD and used it a few times and then it hung in his parents garage for 15-20 years until I rescued this awesome survivor!

Hey thanks Rastacosta! Yeah it was a pretty sweet find for sure and I felt like I robbed the guy...well not really wink

I'm torn between just cleaning it up and keeping it as a survivor (since it's in such great condition) or actually restoring it...likely start by just cleaning it up and getting it up and running again with some new wheels, some new grease and possibly a 09 plate/pad set. What's your thoughts?!

Re: 1987 Zeronine Pro XL

Cool find !
I recall wanting one of these bitd, baby blue to be exact lol
Very nice condition
What stem is that ? DK XXL ?, and what about the hubs? You should get a parts list up.

Every time I get a new bike I always start out with the intentions of doing a full restoration, after I get them cleaned up I can't bring myself to peel off OG decals and re finish a not to bad OG finish. I guess that's why none of my stuff are carpet queens lol I would clean it and keep it as is, change a few things to your liking, for example those grips and seat.... Just suggesting yikes. lol and ride it.

Have fun with it smile

Welcome to the museum !

They're only original once. Nice bike. Leave it.


If it's got two wheels, jump it.

Re: 1987 Zeronine Pro XL

Hey Knarly, the hubs are Suzue, rims are Pro Series but in rough shape. Not sure about the stem...no name on it, have yet to pull it all apart though. I will get a parts list together soon. I also don't like the seat, new grips already on (odi vans black)...looking for new wheels/gum walls for her and new lay back seat post/seat also need to replace the old Tektro brake. Going for a black on chrome look...also looking for a 09 padset and number plate! I cleaned up the frame/fork/bars with a little soapy water and 0000 steel wool on the tiny amount of rust on the welds etc. pretty stoked about how easy it shined up!! Frame is in mint shape...not even a tiny ding on it can't believe I got this thing for soooo cheap!  I wish I could find some new pro series rims for this so I could keep it as it was...I always liked those light as a feather wheels!

Thanks all for the advise and feedback. Being new to the museum and having been away from the 'game' so long it helps to have peeps to help out and provide valuable input!!

It works great the way it is I cannot wait to see it once you have it redone
