if boss made a square crank i would have went with them. i tried to match everything to the chainstays, thats why i have those rims, cranks and even the elf bars with rectangle cross bar. anything thats welded by boss is killer.

Re: 1996 Dirtwerx Pro XL Harry Leary

Re: 1996 Dirtwerx Pro XL Harry Leary

I don't believe they ever came as a complete, only frame fork combo.  Here is a test of one and Leary built up the bike for them to test.

Re: 1996 Dirtwerx Pro XL Harry Leary

pjcruiser that is a killer ad, thanks so much. i finally got to ride this bike on the track and its sweet. its really fast down the straights. i just have to get use to the really low frame and seat. my other race bike is an airbourne miss beehaven and its a lot taller then this bike.

Re: 1996 Dirtwerx Pro XL Harry Leary

Dam I had that same magazine back in the late 90's. I love this bike because I like chromoly, and I used to see Harry rip at the Canyon Country track all the time. You have the best DW buddy. I hope to make mine similar to that.


Like most Dirtwerx owners, Im looking for a fork, chain guide and sticker kit as well.


Looking for:  VG cantilever brakes. Boss 175, or 177 cranks, And a Boss seat clamp.
