2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

I picked up this Dyno frame from a local member over a year ago.  I liked it because it had 990 mounts and that classic Dyno top tube.  It has a kickstand mount and some huge beefy dropouts.  The frame is in great shape and looks like it was just stripped then given a light clear coat.  If I didn't already have a retro idea in mind I would probably build it up in it's raw color - it's pretty cool looking and would look nice with some white decals.  I really like the mid-school sized chain and seat stays on this one.

I matched this to a 2002 Gravity Games Dyno here in the museum based on the kickstand mount and original red color still visible inside the bottom bracket.

No respectable freestyler has a kickstand or mount so be off with you.

Much better.

I went back and forth on these dropouts.  Should I trim about a lb of metal off or just keep them as is.  I was going to mod them to look like an 80's dropout but after I started looking at other Dyno's with these, they kind of grew on me.   In the end I just decided to open them up to 14mm.  Just starting the cuts here...

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

The dropouts turned out well and will now fit my 14mm axles.  This time I started the cut with my Dremel then switched to a hack saw.  I got a straighter line and it went quicker too.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-08.jpg

I also filed then sanded the kickstand welds back down to the frame.  Not 100% invisible but good enough to not notice they were ever there.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-09.jpg

The forks and bars I will be using.  Since I want [need] 990's up front I'm going to do the 1" to 1 1/8" conversion using these Haro forks.  The beefy tubes match the mid-school Dyno frame tubing and will look good together once their colors match.  As for as the bars... I'm going to try something fun with them.  If it doesn't work out I have a couple of nice chrome bars to use instead.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-06.jpg

BTW, are these bubble font A'MEs?

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-10.jpg

It's weird how paint stripper works differently on different paint and powder jobs.  These forks started bubbling up within two minutes even though I coated the bars first.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-11.jpg

The paint peeled right off the forks.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-12.jpg

It's coming off the bars too, just not as loose looking as the forks.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-13.jpg

I've got a couple different ideas on posts so I'm reviving these two.  The layback is a Kalin post and the straight has a stamp that says Royal Enfield.  They both had rust so this pic is after the vinegar bath.  Next stop, the buffing wheel to remove some of the scratches.

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

Those are bubble fonts as far as I know. How can bars be anymore fun than pretzels? And if the TT on that is anything like all my other dynos youll want that layback. This is gonna be good!

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

I started on the forks and got them stripped, primed and painted.

Here's where some of the fun started.  I got the paint stripped off and started working on my idea.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l258/GHS_Wired/BMX_Museum_2011/02Dyno-15.jpg

I put the smaller, stiffer wheel in my drill and started getting wired. wink

Call it shiny raw, polished steel or poor man's chrome.  Half way done.

Finished just before a nice thick layer of clear gloss.

I also got these back from the laser engraver today.

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

Only got a little done this week.  I spent hours on some custom decals and just picked them up.  I had to try applying a couple when I got home.

Since I was having a pro do white I threw a few of these on the sheet as well.

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

that poor mans chrome doesnt actually look that bad. Almost like the brushed alloy frames. And as usual decals look top notch.

Re: 2002 Dyno restomod progress (Voelker style)

Glad I found this thread! I just picked up the same complete bike for dirt cheap locally & have been looking for info as to what it is. I originally thought it to be a 2001 Dyno Zone because the frame looks identical, but the bars gave it away as I found an '02 Gravity Games here with the same bars. So, this appears to be what I have.

Any other info on this? Did they make these as a Special Edition using leftover '01 Zone frames by any chance? Is it tensile steel or chromoly?

Sorry to hijack the thread. Yours looks like it's gonna turn out awesome. hopefully I'll get some ideas on what to do with mine. smile

I don't know anything else about it either.  The pic at the top is how I bought it and was just lucky enough to spot the red paint inside the bottom bracket to clue me in.  I wouldn't expect there to be any chromoly in it (unfortunately).  The bars remind me of a Walgoose...
