1998 Gary Fisher Cake

1998 Gary Fisher Cake

Sweetest and Most Rare of late Mid-School bikes  -at least I think so.

I wanted this one too -but couldn't find one in the US to buy.  They seem to show up for sale in Australia on a pretty regular basis, but never here.
Finally, saw one on CL -but in Miami.  Great Props to BMXerPete in West Palm for picking this up, sitting on it for two months, and bringing it up to the 2010 Spring Fling to deliver it to me!  Great guy!
********************
Feb 2011 - Got some New parts -and Some New Decals!
Gary Fisher threadless pro fork.  Long steer tube that I don't want to cut -so I also switched to a Bontrager 3 bolt Stem.
Black alloy Odyssey INTAC seat post and new raw and machined seat post clamp
Tektro Red brakes that I got on the museum and seperately bought the really cool Red and Yellow lever
New Michelin Mambo BMX tires -really fat suckers.
Black Widows, Dan's Comp, FMF, Wahoo's Fish Tacos, and some cool COOP devil girl 1999 stickers.
Sweet Gary Fisher BMX seat.... Uber rare aftermarket part.
///////////
This frame is the Cake -which was what I believe to be the first of these frames for GF.  He basically worked in tandem with the Trek people, the parent company, who were coming out with the TEAM ISSUE bikes -the Y frame -and he cut the seat tube like the Specialized Fatboy.  They had this same frame but in a pearl white that they called the Dolph, and later this was in Gray and called the PRO Issue.  Maybe they were just different part packages since they all seem to be the same time frame.   Curiously, I got the original receipt from the seller of this bike -and it says Dolph on it -not Cake.
Finally Complete -8/1/2010 -updated parts below:
Gary Fisher Cake Aluminum 6061 T-6 frame with large ovalized tubes.
American BB, 1 1/8" threadless HS
27.2 seat post (will have to verify that)

Specialized black alloy 44t chainwheel for 110BCD
Gary Fisher pro sized chromoly handlebars
Black ODI Lock-on handlebars with Red SE bar ends for color
6 bolt black threadless stem (no heavier than others -maybe Odyssey?)
Raw alloy double wall Sun B.F.R. 36h rim to rear hub -asymetrical black alloy, sealed mechanism -bontrager

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

The frame looks like the Specialized Fatgirl. Except the rear dropouts.

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

I have this bike and I am from Australia. I am looking at selling it. No one really cares for it over here or knows much about it. Do you think this would be a good sight to sell this on even though its in Australia.

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

Funny you say that.  These were MUCH more popular in Australia than here in the US.

Regardless of worth, they are rare!

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

The wade boots -wasn't that a Trek frame though?  Chrome? on an aluminum bike?  You need to post that one up asap!

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

I really need this seat. So if you ever sell the bike. Let me know and maybe we can work a deal out on the seat. This is what I had on my pro issue, can't find one at all.

Sweet ride.

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

$300.  Seriously, that's the lowest I would consider for this seat.

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

p.s.
i would have thought that kickbacks were more sought after....


It's like the man says, there's no problems...only solutions.

Sorry,  missed this question.
I put those on... I got the fork with no decals on it, and I love Coop stuff.
Right era, right colors, these are perfect on there.

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

Hi there,  came across this site when I was doing a search for Cakes. Wondering the value on one? I have a complete bike with different quality parts from my old racing days.  Thanks!

Re: 1998 Gary Fisher Cake

Hi, This is my first day as a member of The BMX Museum, and the 98' Gary Fisher Cake is the bike that brought me here. My name is Chris, I'm 25 years old. November 1998 I unknowingly am about to receive the best gift I will receive in my life. I never knew there was such thing as a golden birthday, but my newly wedded parents sure did. Saturday November 7th, my dad brought me to an old buddy of his house. Let me tell ya, this wasn't an ordinary house. When we walked in the house, there was bikes all over the place, to the point that getting the the living room was a task it self. Of course the first thing I need to do is take a leak, cause that's what kids do lol. There were even bikes the bathtub/shower. My dad is in just as much awe as I am at this point that, he opens the door to the garage and I kid you not there were bikes from the floor to the rafters was nothing but bikes 100s of them, there had to be 1000 plus on the property. At this point I still have no idea why we are at this magical place. The king of this castle leads us in to the living room, where this beautiful bright yellow and red fat framed BMX bike showcased on the love seat. First thing the guy says is, "Wanna ride it?" as I already have it have way to the front door. It took one turn of the crank on those mint bear claws to know it was the bike for me. When we left the house I never would've thought I'd be riding the same bike at 25 years old. Tires, tubes, grips, brakes, peddles, a chain and a seat are the only things replaced in 19 years and 1000's of miles.

With that being said I needs a makeover real bad. If anyone has some extra decals, or anything that would look great on a cake, please email me at wiisanen123@yahoo.com
