1986 Phase 2
1986 Phase 2 titanium pro
I just bought this frame and fork set of a friend of mine the other day and quickly built it using some parts I had laying around.
I do not know the history associated with this frame set however what I do know is it was purchased from a family here in Perth WA. Now back around 1987 there were three Phase 2 sponsored riders from Perth.
They were Lyndal Ellement, Anthony Pymm and Andrew Robinson. Andrew rode a pro Phase 2 like this one. Darryn Hill also had a phase two Pro which he had sent from the US even before the other three riders were picked up by Phase 2. Darryn's and Andrew's Phase 2 Pro's were the the only known Pro's in Australia back then and thirty odd years later I own one found here in WA and another friend of mine has the other one.

Ive been after one of these frames now for thirty years and now I finally have one.
Not a lot is known about Phase 2 other than it used to be called SRP (Stanley Racing Products) but 1n 1985/6 was bought buy a guy names Ernie Smith who's son used to race in the NBL on mini race bikes. He changed the name to Phase 2 and the rest is history. What I find interesting is they had six different sizes of Titanium frames available however they also made 4130 Chromolly frame and forks too. From what I have seen over the years it appears that the 4130 frames use a USA bottom bracket where as all the titanium frames including the pro frames use a euro bottom bracket. I don't know if this is the case with every frame made but from what I've seen it sure looks that way.
