1997 Standard Lengthy

Mt dream bike growing up

This bike has been a round for a little bit, but it came up for sale earlier this year and decided to take it on. I wanted to make this bike as era correct as I possibly could, so I went through and built this thing to about 95% era correct, with the exception being the linear kevlar lined Slic cables, nips and innertubes. I had always wanted a lengthy bitd, because there were two locals that were co sponsored by the SBC with frame and forks so I always wanted one.  This was a really fun build, but as I grew up riding street and trails I really didn't know a lick about how Flatland bikes were setup, until I got into this build.

I was super humbled to win Best Standard at the Midwest BMX Fest this year, even with some other really nice bikes being there... including a 1" Pink Shorty that was freakin awesome.
