Re: REPOP VG?

Hey Guys,

The brake hangers were originally designed by Knight in 2005.
Then produced by Super Rat Machine Works back in 2006.

http://www.superratmachine.com/2006/05/ … le-hanger/

Then Von Giese helped make the brake hangers for Knight back in 2007.
Don't know why VG is releasing these as NOS as they probably excess stock or brand new pieces.

Here is some images on parts section of museum for reference:

Shill? lol...Maybe try reading the entire thread before you comment bud.

Not sure what you are doubting....but the 3 levers on ebay that ended on the 29th were real.

Just because there is a thread discussing repop VG parts, doesn't mean all of them are.

The shill he is referring to is the shill bidder you alluded to in your previous post.

Re: REPOP VG?

HAHA, this guy^...OK BUD...You knew what bidding up is I assumed...BUT apparently not...that's called SHILL bidding, I don't honestly care if they were real or not...but at least 2 of the 3 levers sold for Above $220 if I remember correctly. I loved the red one...just not that much.

Re: REPOP VG?

I thought he was calling me a Shill. If not, my bad.

Back on track.

So are these VG parts from 2006/2007 made by knight, maybe in collaboration with Von? If so why has noone seen them until now? We need some more answers from the people selling them.

Yea i know what shill bidding is.

I just read shill and assumed you were referring to me defending the levers, and saying they are real. Misunderstanding, lets move on.

The VG son and dad have different shops.  The son makes the cellphone covers.  The dad made the bmx parts for Knight in 2007.

Re: REPOP VG?

The guy selling the parts at the last swap meet was Judd Kincade. He even had an original banner with the original VG # on it. He said it was New old stock that had been forgotten about. He and i spoke on the phone on monday about me purchasing some more parts he had in his storage. He indicated to me the only parts he had left were some brake levers some spiders and a bunch of bar ends. Im not sure whos who on ebay but i will call him and find out whats going on !
