Re: Bassett Racing...let's see em!

The 24" inchers pictured on the previous page are killer!

What are the forks on the red one? Are those Bassett forks?

Thanks Ryan. I've never seen the no offset a la Robinson, Mongoose style of drop out on Basset forks before. The forks pic'd with the gold hubs look like Powerlite style drop outs.

Cool pics and thanks for continually adding to this thread.

No worries. Robinson was only one of many companies that had their bikes made by Bassett/Roger's Mfg back in the day. The story I got from Johnny Severin was that the first Bassett 20" bikes were made from a bunch of Robinson rear ends that Chuck Rogers got stuck with after some bad deal, so it doesn't surprise me that there's similarities in some of the dropouts. I think Severin still has dropouts, parts and jigs for some of the old Bassett stuff.

Nice rides, I remember seeing that Bassett Swooper test and thinking how cool that frame was.

Re: Bassett Racing...let's see em!

I saw a chrome Swooper on San Diego Craigslist recently. I think it had some good parts and wasn't too pricey..

Someone has to. wink

I just wanted to make a place where we can go to reference any old Bassett bmx stuff. There's so little info online about em. Of the 15 current Bassett bikes submitted in the museum, I know that several of them are the same bikes that have been sold and resubmitted. So there's less than 15 actually submitted.

I'm hoping more bikes are found, saved, built, and posted in here. Maybe Woody(freestyl), Severin, or any of the old team riders could post some stories/history too...

The black Bassett 20" is Chris Moeller's old frame. Also a photo of Chris holding his old Bassett and a reposted photo of him racing it at Orange Y back in the day(on the right in the Peddle Power jersey). Dig it!big_smile
