1996 Dirtwerx 24

The Peak of Mid-School

Behold! A Leary Dirtwerx Cruiser
Ive always wanted one of these ever since I saw Harry Leary ripping at the ABA Canyon Country, Ca track on this bike. Then the Snap magazine article came out, and that sealed its fate on my must have list. I got this NOS in 2011. This thing is 4130 with box chain stays, a low stance, and light weight. Oh, and did I mention its made by Boss, Livermore, USA? The finish is a 10. It has the rare forks, and the super rare "painkiller" chain guide. Its pretty much my grail.


Can anyone help me get some Boss cranks, and Dirtwerx chain tensioners????

I doubt it on the decals, and I doubt Ill ever find cruiser bars.

But, I may be able to get you a fork and chain guide. Im looking for some resonably priced 175 Boss cranks.

Yeah I dont think they did. It be kinda weird to make that style in a low rise.

Re: 1996 Dirtwerx 24

Love this ride....I always come back to check this one out one more time. I should have bought the DW 24 that came up on the bay a few months ago, it had the matching fork and rare cruiser bar too. It was just missing the painkiller guide.
