1989 Free Agent 24

my current project

I used to ride with Mitch Collins in high school, and when he got picked up by Hutch, the first Trick Star they sent him was baby blue with blue anno and chrome parts.  I fell in love.  I'm still suprised noone's got a T/S with that combo in the museum...

Yup, 10/88 build date, but 3/4" stays make it an 89 model.  I can't wait to see it done either.

Re: 1989 Free Agent 24

funny, that's what I plan on doing to mine

finally found that fork? I sure could use one


I might not deliver when I say I will, but when I do it's always right on time.

I can't claim credit for finding it.  When I was telling bmxerpete about the project at elemenop's birthday party he said he thought he had a set in his attic, which he generously hooked me up with.  The chrome isn't perfect, but it should polish up pretty well.  I may keep the GT forks as riders, as I kinda like the stance with the extended dropouts, and put the Free Agent forks on for shows.  I'll hold off making that decision till I ride it with both.  I may prefer the way it rides with the tighter rake.

Re: 1989 Free Agent 24

Thanks Kevan.  Bill did a gorgeous job.  I'm really happy with how this build is coming along.  It's turning out way nicer than I originally planned.

Re: 1989 Free Agent 24

It's done until I can find some period correct bars with a wider crossbar (my 09 plate won't fit on the S&M bars).  :D

Re: 1989 Free Agent 24

Thanks, Kevan.  More period correct pedals would be nice, but since those are the first part to take a beating when the bike gets laid down, and this DOES get ridden, I decided just to go with something that looks the part at first glance and I won't freak out of the cage gets smashed and scratched.

I had to use a jar opener to put mine on after I cleaned the fork threads...and the headlock was NOS. I guess some of them are just tight

This is a wicked bike.  I can only imagine how it would look with earlier FA script decals...
