Here is mine with some bitd and current pics.  I built the bike back up for my nephew a few months ago, and he is riding the heck out of it.

Wow... Some Really Awesome Pits in here.....

Brian, lets see some flatland action on your Q-barred Performer 16'

Yellow99.... Those are stunning builds. I lobe the Day Glow Pink custom with the front 990 mounts.  The mini Sport will rule!

Caleb, That Jad is just crazy cool....Very exotic. Can i ask? What are those big aluminum disc brackets on the top tube for? (Besides being a cable guide) They look serious! smile

Re: who has a rad pit bike ?? post it

Yup.... the kid is obsessed with spiderman.   He didn't really like the bike much when I gave it to him, but now he is loving it.  He is bombing his steep driveway.  I think the numberplate added some good protection from parked cars smile  I need to find him some jumps.

Re: who has a rad pit bike ?? post it

Just picked this one up 2 weeks ago and I am having a hard time deciding where I want to go with it. I wanted a f'f that I could do some welding and cutting on to make a  91-93 S&M Dirtbike pit bike. This is a perfect one to use as a base model, with a little fab work it could look pretty close to one. The big problem is that this one is too nice to start cutting on, so now I guess this one is going to get a few tweeks, some paint on some parts and a set of 3pc cranks. I already put the bars and seat/post combo to get a feel for the ride height.

Re: who has a rad pit bike ?? post it

Local junkyard find. This is what i started on some 30 years ago. It's got twin top tube AND downtubes. Vintage all the way. Too bad i'm too big now to actually pedal it. "Pit bike" or not, i love it.

Re: who has a rad pit bike ?? post it

well small mortorcycles were riden around in the pit area to go back and forth from cars to bathrooms etc.  so small BMX adpoted the term pit bike.  at least that's what i always thought.
