1982 Profile Racing Champ Pro

1982 Profile Racing Champ Pro

1982 PROFILE CHAMP PRO


At one time, I thought the PROFILE straight blade fork in the Profile add was a 1st generation fork.  However, it was not.  The straight blade fork was made simultaneously with the more common leading edge design that we more commonly see.  The straight blade PROFILE fork has been mistaken for early Robinson forks in the past.   Robinson forks are much broader at the shoulder than the PROFILE fork and have much more rake than the PROFILES.  The PROFILES can stand on end but they do have a very slight rake.
 
UPDATE 3/4/10 THE FOLLOWING info came directly from PROFILE. However, I just found evidence in BMXA that would refute this timeline. Zagar's joined SCORPION in 4/82 BMXA 10/82 pg. 62-63. There is a PROFILE advertisement with these forks in the 4/82 BMXA on pg. 15. ****The way this fork came about was Rich Zagars, a PROFILE factory rider who also rode the famed Double Bar Profile Champ Pro currently owned by Jeff Haney.  He was the impetus for getting these forks designed and made.  **** There were less than 20 sets of forks manufactured and there are only 6 sets that I currently know of.  They were also used/raced up to around 1985.  There are only 2 F/F sets with original chrome, 2 F/F sets with OG stickers, and mine is the only one with original seat stay CHAMP PRO stickers and only the 5th Profile F/F set that I have seen with these stickers. 
 
4 sets are with there original frames
2 forks are separate (1 set of forks is NOS) I have currently been able to count roughly 12-15 sets of these forks so the quoted count of 20 made has to be incorrect-maybe more like 50-100 sets as Jim Alley said they just didn't sell because they weren't liked. (2/07/2012)
 
I didn’t build this bike with the mindset of a BITD build because nobody would build a bike like this nor would a factory team rider.  I built this bike this way as a tribute to PROFILE and all the top quality parts they made.
 
The other funny story about this F/F set is that it is here on OS-BMX  http://www.os-bmx.com/forums/index.php? … =29430&hl= .  Notice just because this gentleman said he bought it in 1984 does not mean it was manufactured in 1984.  I first saw this on Ebay in February 2008 where it sold for $829 for the Frame, fork, LP 125, Chrome Tuf or Pro neck, Chrome DC hinged clamp, and a chrome MX-1000 caliper and it was originally from New Jersey (I have the auction in my archives).  I did not bid because I was not sure I was getting into the hobby at the time and regretted not buying it after realizing what it was and vowed if I ever saw it again I would get it.  One day it popped up again on the bay this past summer and it was in Germany so I contacted the owner and we struck a deal just for the frame, fork and headset for a great price in my eyes.
 
FRAME/FORK- Profile Champ Pro F/F with OG chrome and stickers-This F/F combo is 1 of 6 known to exist and only one of 2 with original chrome and most of it’s stickers and the only 1 of 2 with OG CHAMP PRO Stickers on the seat stays.  The straight drop out fork is 1 of less than 100 built.
HANDLEBARS-Profile 1st Generation PRO bars-Original Chrome and stickers 29 x 8.5
STEM-Profile 2nd Gen Solid Bottom Lockjaw stem-original finish and hardware.
CRANKS-Profile Early 2nd Generation BOX Cranks without drain holes and with the lip for the spider-mine from when I was 12-rechromed arms-all OG hardware and NOS crank stickers.
SPIDER-Profile 130mm Spider-used-mine from when I was 12
BOTTOM BRACKET-Profile stamped bearing cups-some of the earliest they made-only have seen 2 sets (bearings replaced).  NOT made very long.
CHAINRING-TAKAGI NOS 44T
PEDALS-Profile Horse Shoes-NOS
HUBS-Profile High Flange GYROLITE II hubs with optional Titanium axles with Titanium nuts and washers (all Gyrolites were issued with TI hardware)-NOS before being laced (only NOS set Gyrolite II’s I knew of before lacing).
PADS-Profile Chrome pad set ORIGINAL
HEADSET-TANGE LP-125 Original to the F/F set except the locknut and dirt skirt (I changed them)
GRIPS-OAKLEY B-1B’s-NOS with nos Crud plugs
SADDLE-CYCLE PRO Shot Gun II-NOS
SEATPOST-PROFILE Layback seat post
SEAT CLAMP-DIA COMPE 2 Bolt seat clamp-NOS
RIMS-UKAI Speedlines Shiny Sides-SS spokes, gold nipples
TIRES-MITSUBOSHI COMP 2 Tires-Used rear…NOS front
BRAKES-DIA COMPE MX-1000 Dated 1982 TECH 3 lever, 1982 Dated DC Cable
BRAKE SHOES-MATHAUSER curved brake pads-used
NUMBER PLATE-HARO Series One plate-NOS

Re: 1982 Profile Racing Champ Pro

Thanks gents,

This gets ridden but not with the wheelset and the Comp II's and NO snow for this one. :)  I am just glad it is mostly done-still needs a real PROFILE Layback (I have only seen 2) and a set of PRO bars and this money pit is done.

Re: 1982 Profile Racing Champ Pro

I have to post more pix...or have CAPPY take some pix in the Spring.  I just have to figure out how some are posting extra pix in MY BIKES or I will just post in CATCHALL when I get a chance.

Scott - You could resize some to thumbnail size and add them to the details section of your bikes (like I did on some of mine - i.e. the Profile). If you need help with this let me know. I also just add larger photos to the post itself, along with a caption of sorts.

Thanks Matt...Too bad its not done yet. :lol:  Tired of throwing $$$ in it but the thrill of the hunt is fun but this was a very $$$ consuming build.

One less thing PROFILE produced off the list for me. :)

The bike has been fitted with an OG PROFILE Layback seatpost.  Now I just have to find time to update the photos. :rolleyes:

Yup sure do.  The challenge is what I am really trying to accomplish-1 of everything Profile made from 1980-1986...think about it.  A very hard collection to attain and one that I will not be able to finish...but I will try my best to come as close as I can.  I have many members here to thank-to give me the opportunity to buy some of the hardest pieces to find on the planet.
