1996 Secret Cycles

#1 of 25

This is an updated frame from the 1987 Secret Cycles. I came up with modern day (at the time) changes I wanted and contracted Fabweld from Florida to build 25 f/f's for me. The "NC-17" has a 21" toptube, 1-1/8" threadless headset, canti brakes, and a wishbone seat tube that I first designed in 1989. All of the frames were originally powdercoated in yellow. Eventually I tired of it and had mine repowdered. The bike also has NOS FabWeld Countermeasure cranks, a one-off, cnc'd crossbar, handlebar of my own design (an update to my original bars from 1988). The sprocket is also my own design.

Re: 1996 Secret Cycles

do you have any of those bikes left?   I remember a post of yours awhile back looking for some of these but I didn't look at the bike that closely...it's one of those bikes that looks better and better the more I look at it.   cool bars too.

Re: 1996 Secret Cycles

The one previously posted was the 1987 model, only 6 made. I do have some other of the 1996's. The prototype, 21" tt, 1" threaded (they goofed up, were supposed to be 1-1/8", but '96 was a time when some companies frames were 1", and 1-1/8" was relatively new for bmx), and chainstays that were too wide (so wide my 3pc cranks wouldn't fit, they'd hit), and a complete "Rated-R", and used Rated-R f/f and an nos Rated-R f/f.
Thanks for the compliments. You can't believe how stiff those aluminum bars are! (complaining, not bragging)
