That dropout is from late 1993 to very early 1994 that`s an AWESOME !!!! frame to own and if you look at the frame specs at the bottom of the thread my 1993 Lengthy is the lightest frame out of all of the different versions of the Lengthy. Thanks for posting big_smile
Here is a ad from July 1994 the frame is the same as yours.Magazines were about three months behind when they came out.That would put this frame around April 1994. smile

Re: THE DEFINATIVE GUIDE TO THE STANDARD PLATFROM LENGTHY

im curious to where these frames sit in.

from tajs "to all the bikes ive loved"
"Standard OG prototype. This was the first Standard. The frame weighed like 9lbs because no one knew how thick to make any of the tubes. I hated this bike because I was used to long ass race bikes, but I sure was stoked to get to test it.
Key Points: Lemon juice cleans copper to a wonderful shine.
Also, this is the frame (but not forks) that Jeff Crawn got hurt on. I don’t like this frame."

"Standard Lenghty prototype 2. Again this one was too small for me, but this one was also much lighter. This was Rick Moliterno’s personal frame, but he gave it to me to use on a road trip and I got my first ever interview in both Ride and Dig Mags on that frame.
Key points: At a contest this bike got away from me, bounced 4 or 5 times in long cartwheels and then smashed into a bench and dented the shit out of the top tube. I thought Rick would be angry so I tried to cover the dent with a sticker before returning it."

Re: THE DEFINATIVE GUIDE TO THE STANDARD PLATFROM LENGTHY

That 96 lengthy frame was a thing of dream to me.  Where i live there were two guys who were absolute rippers and both of them rode Standards... one rode a shorty and one rode a lengthy, the shorty was chrome with almost a red candy over that slowly wore away to chrome.  I can't remember what color the lengthy was, but I do remember the double brake lines to bottom mount 990's... absolutely awesome to see one again.

IMHO Standard is one of the most forward thinking company's out there, looking at the size they were making their dropouts even in the very early days tells me they were made by riders for riders.  I rode a Standard STA 500 in 01 and 02... that was another great forward thinking bike with the use of (I think) Reynolds tubing to make that bike substantially lighter than the 40 lb. lugs that some of us were riding on the street.  Now days everyone is making their bikes, while at the same time maintaining strength through better steel... Standard was the first to do it though.

Awesome read, thanks again for putting that together

The copper colored one is Southwick number one rumor has it that's its stashed under the guys bed that got really hurt on it when his non standard forks snapped. The other frame is not a lengthy it's a gardnder built shorty serial number G143 I have pics and access to it and will post pics of it soon. It also wasnt the second lengthy prototype made it was the 43rd Gardner built built frame made and yes Taj dented the crap out of it. lol

Southwick #0002 is the second lengthy prototype ever made I own it and the top tube isn't dented on it. I also have a letter from Rick moliterno talking about loaning Gardner #43 to Taj and getting it back dented which I believe is actually the frame that is referred to as "standard lengthy prototype 2".

Here is the letter from Rick Moliterno about the frame and a picture of the actual frame. smile

This one was ridden first by me then later I loaned it to Taj Mihelich for a time. It is in good condition except for the healthy dent in the down tube (that was Taj-I was smooth smile! ha!!). Let me know if you want any close ups on any of these frame sections.

Re: THE DEFINATIVE GUIDE TO THE STANDARD PLATFROM LENGTHY

Suicidepan,

I just added my old lengthy to the museum.  I believe its a 95, but its one of two that don't have the Standard gusset from back then.  It does have the upper and lower spoon gussets.  And if I recall, the other frame that didn't have the gusset went to Hurlburt. 

Here is a link to the pics of it:  http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/standard_bykes/65102

I'm computer dumb and couldn't get it to attach to this reply....
