BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

NICOLE KIDMAN’S 1983 MALVERN STAR
SUPERMAX BUILD!


http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/bmx.jpg

So I’ve decided for my next bike build I’ll be doing, yep, another SuperMaX. This time around I’m going to be replicating Judy’s (Nicole Kidman) Malvern Star SuperMaX from Brian Trenchard-Smith’s 1983 classic BMX BANDITS. I’ve seen quite a few great replicas of Goose and PJ’s Diamondback and Supergoose on the museum, but I haven’t yet seen an accurate SuperMaX, which I think is un-Australian! So I thought I’d give it a burl and see what I can come up with.
Here’s a short clip from the flick that for the best part shows Judy’s SuperMaX in action!

http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/th_39255357.jpg

So far I’ve been able to snap up a few parts for the build with more arriving every week, from pretty much all corners of the globe. There’s a couple of items I might need a bit of help sourcing, namely the NOS chrome WIN v-bars, Yellow Kashimax Aero, seat clamp (I am still unsure whether it is the original Tange clamp, or if it is a Suntour one) and of course the ½��  DX pedals. I’ve put up a couple of wanted posts already and have been pretty darn successful so far, but I thought it might be easier if I consolidate it here, so to say “putting all my eggs in one basket�� , making it much easier to manage.

Don’t get me wrong this is a build thread and it will be logging the progress of the build, not just begging you all for scraps. If you can contribute to that progress I’d be stoked! Or just let me know what you think. I’d love to have it all nipped up in time for the next Knox show n’ shine, when is it again, November? Better get crackin’.

So here’s where I’m at. So far I’ve collected:
NOS Nitto MX-2 (Big thanks to FluckaDuck!)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/IMG_6902.jpg
NOS Grab On MX-3 (Big thanks to BMX Racer 83)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/GrabOnMX3.jpg
NOS Shimano Tourneys (Big thanks to RadPad!)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/ShimanoTourneys.jpg
NOS Shimano DX Levers (Big thanks to Rocket )
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/ShimanoDXTriggers.jpg
NOS Takagi cranks (Big thanks to Cuckoo)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/KGrHqJpIE-z7CyBeIBQDGMwS2Tg60_57.jpg
Chain-wheel and Guard (pulled of my MaXi – free!)
NOS SuperMaX frame (eBay score!)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/sprmx.jpg
NOS SuperMaX Pads (eBay score!)
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/pads-1.jpg

Still need to track down these:
NOS WIN chrome v-bars
NOS/Mint Black Tange TX1200’s
Mint Kashimax Aero (I need some gas money right?)
NOS Clamp (can anyone confirm this, with evidence?)
Mint DX Pedals (let’s be honest, I can’t afford NOS DXs)
NOS Rad Pad Stem Pad

I think I can pretty much sort out the rest with a few trawls of good ‘ol eBay, I reckon. Stay tuned, I’ll post some new pics as parts arrive. Enjoy!

Re: BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

Yep, that's her alright. She's the frizzy haired one in the middle. Gawk as you will:

http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w366/HotfootHero/Nicolebook.jpg

I got the mongoose Maurice pad and the tange forks in the mail today thanks to Gav, so I decided to take a few snaps to share how the build's progressing with all you guys. I'm still waiting on a couple of parts in the post, namely the tange seat clamp (which is sadly red) and the Redline V-bars which have yet to turn up along with a few goodies for my PK. So once everything turns up all that's left will be the yellow NOS Kashimax Aero saddle, NOS chrome NITTO post and the dreaded NOS DX pedals. I'll also have to get the decals printed out too and I've now completed the artwork  for the complete set and they look killer! Enjoy:

Re: BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

Well the build is going great so far. I've managed to get ahold of a NOS yelliw Kashimax Aero and gold Tange clamp and I'm still waiting on the NOS Redline bars in the mail. I'll be posting more pics as they arrive. I guess I must have forgotten to post this one.

As you can see from this screen grab the stem pad used on Nicole's original BMX was actually a mongoose BMX products Maurice pad. cool

Re: BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

Thanks Bugs! Well the day I've been awaiting most of all has arrived, the NOS WIN bars turned up in the post today. They look absolutely sensational! Thanks Yan! I decided to grab all the bits and bobs that I had lying around and set up the bars very loosely for a gander and it looks awsome! It's really starting to resemble a bike. Enjoy:

Now I'll be waiting on the Kashimax and Tange seat-clamp very eagerly. Cheers Pete.

Re: BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

Send it to her. I think she will like it. That is if someone else is not doing her Twitter for her. They are apparently soooo "busy" that they would probably hire someone to repond to all the thousands of twitter messages.

Re: BMX Bandits Nicole Kidman build.

Couldn't really give two shits if she "liked' it or not, personally. The fact is I like it. I like it a lot. cool
I don't have a twitter feed so I can't actually do it, but I think it's a great idea so I just might actually do it. But I'd wait 'till it's finished before I went and did any of that shit.

Still waiting on a few more things to roll in. I'll keep you posted with the build.
