2009 Liquor Bikes OG

Liquor Bikes OG frame, 21"tt.  Hand made in Austin, Texas.

This is a Liquor Bikes OG frame, built in 2009.  I picked it up in trade in late 2009, and it's been my daily rider since I first built it up in early 2010.  It's really nicely built but very heavy.  As built the bike weighs in at nearly 33 pounds.  The finish is custom wire brushed raw with clear powder by Liquor.  The OG frames were hand made in Austin, TX, but newer Liquor frames are built by Solid.
*edit*  NEW PICS & PARTS LIST from 5/12/13.  3rd pic is setup from 12/11, last picture is original setup from 3/10.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

Awesome frame!  I had an OG about a year ago, They are a little heavy but indestructible. Great score you will love it.  Post pics when finish with the build.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

Liquor is an Austin based company.  The OG is built super tough stuff, with straight gauge tubing, heavy and built to last forever.  The older frames like mine were hand built, but I understand that the 2011 Light Weight frames are built by Solid now.  They're 4.8 pounds, the OG is over 6.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

I don't know who edited this, but the model was the Liquor  "OG", not "original."  Their abbreviation, not mine.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

Updated parts list.  I changed out the Subrosa Pandora forks, Perfect Ten bars, FBM sprocket, WTP/Hazard Lite wheels, took off TSC pegs, and have replaced most of the wear items more times than I can count.  I love this bike, and it's never felt more dialed.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

They called it the OG, but that was actually the second gen frame that Liquor produced.  The original frame had a much taller standover height and used a normal press fit 1 1/8" headset.  I own one just like yours in 21", and they are really not that heavy for a full on straight gauge frame.  I've never weighed mine, but believe they were advertised as 6 lbs flat.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

Thanks for the info!  I weighed mine before I built it, and if I remember correctly, it was closer to 7 pounds, but that was 4 years ago so I could be wrong.  Either way, I'd rather ride a tank than something I'm worried about breaking, and after years of use this thing has held up perfect.

Re: 2009 Liquor Bikes OG

No problem man.  I might trust you scale more than what was advertised.  That's a bad-ass bike!  Mine was my first (and only) 21" frame, and turned out to be too long for me.  If I had ordered it in 20.6, I would likely still be riding it today.  I consider these frames to be a little bit before their time, with the ultra low stand-over and very short rear ends.
