If I remember correctly that first pic was at a-1 bikes in westminset cal. I saw that sitting on the case. She has some cool old school bikes and frames on all the walls end to end.

Yes, the bike was in So-Cal. The original owner (Paul) raced in the mid 90's and had an amazing set of bikes built for him back in the day. The Yellow Holmes and the Widowmaker that I currently own were all customized by him. And the Widow you currently own that was stickered as a Holmes originally. You did an amazing job turning that beast into a one of a kind ride!! I had almost purchased all three bikes off him while I was in so-cal that week visiting my brother. Glad it went to a good home!! So my Widow and your Widow are practically brothers!! He also knew the owner of MXR hubs back in the day!! But I've already asked he doesn't have any more sets of the Hubs.sadsad.......coolcool

Re: S&M Widowmaker "My Holy Grail Build"

It was originally sticked Holmes because S&M ran out of decals or they weren't even manufactured yet??? Not sure. In essence a Widowmaker is a Holmes but just the 24 inch version. One of his were stickered Holmes and one Widowmaker. He was going through a divorce and didn't want to sell them in the first place. His Ex was making him liquidate his assets so she could get paid. I didn't want to ask too many questions because you could tell it was a sore subject for him!!!sadsad

I first saw this bike soon after it was discovered at a bike shop and purchased by another collector William (Larock). The bike then would change hands to another collector Jay (Rockabilly Jay) and was later sold to yet another collector Joe (Hboost) who ultimately sold it to me. The bike was rumored to have been stickered with the purple Holmes stickers at the factory because S&M was out of Widowmaker stickers when it was sold. The bike had already changed hands kind of like a wet whore on prom night and needed a new identity.

Re: S&M Widowmaker "My Holy Grail Build"

Perfection!  That is one of nicest S&M race builds I've ever seen.  Top notch, brother.

BTW, IIRC the S&S chainwheel was actually called the Buzzsaw.  I have been looking for one for years.  I bought one at the Steel City Classic in PA back in '92.

Re: S&M Widowmaker "My Holy Grail Build"

So exactly how rare are Widowmakers ?  I don't think I've heard a definitive answer on the number produced..... (Sorry if this has already been discussed).

(And yes, I do have one !!)


20", 22", 24", 26", and 700c !

Re: S&M Widowmaker "My Holy Grail Build"

very nice build looks killer. but I could not help it if it was mine. the number plat would at least have a S&M sticker and a VG sticker. but I still love your build!

Thank you for the update. Are you both sure its a Widow and not a pre Widow S&M Cruiser? Not to doubt you I just want to update my post if it is confirmed.

Thank you,
Stephen
