UPDATED:  Just Picked Her Up Today After A Professional Cleaning and Polish.  Frame weighs 3 lbs 13 oz.

The only other Loncarevich I have ever seen is in Jeff Haney's collection.

Re: Coming Soon To A BMX Museum Near You - Loncarevich Racing Products

Actually pre CW...from what I've gathered, LRP was a company Pete and his father started in early 1983.  This matches the serial stamp on the frame.  In late '83, Pete jumped to Shadow Racing which was the precursor to CW.  At that time, CW made it a clause of sponsorship for the Loncarevich family to shut down their business, Loncarevich Racing Products.  Very short lived company

Pistol Pete! That guy was so freaking fast....

Any idea who made the frames for them or how many might have been made? Absolutely nobody raced one of those in my home state, BITD. I only recall seeing one of them, maybe in Florida in 83 or 84?

Re: Coming Soon To A BMX Museum Near You - Loncarevich Racing Products

Thanks!  TT is a standard 17.5.  I would have thought it might be longer, but no such luck. 

The only other LRP product I have seen are some pretty funky cranks.

No idea on how many might have been produced or who manufactured.  I do know the frame design shares a history with TW.  His father's business partners ran TW.  The TW frame is identical except no gusset and in not a looptail design.  LRP was in business from Mid February 1983-November 1983 as I've read.  If the serial number are sequential, this is #38

Looks like one of the fork decals was put on wrong. Bummer because I bet they are rare as hen's teeth.

Re: Coming Soon To A BMX Museum Near You - Loncarevich Racing Products

Well hashing up a bendable seatpost shouldn't be that big a task considering you mustered up a near nonexistant frameset...

Pete was riding for DB at the time he started LRP distributing - that's how Leary was photographed with son•lite hubs which were a product they sold... Pete left DB and soon after picked up the cw colors.
To be honest LRP products were kinda kitschy and never caught on - pedal cage extenders were already passé, bendable seatposts (really ?) and though they never saw production, the cranks woulda bombed had they ever came to fruwition - another stolen idea from a French road bike company (PMP) from the early seventies. That bombed the first time around.

Shadow didn't come into play till much later in the cw history - Pete rode for cw for sometime before the switch - the design they stole for the shadow project frames were Dale racing designs and they were available 84 - shadow was formed at the time of the spinoffs with the revcore line - revcore made the cut, shadow didn't, believe that wasn't till 88 or a little after - some 4/5 yrs after Dale racing was no longer available.

That frame was on E bay about a month or so ago. It had a cracked and repaired top tube didn't it? Looks like it has been smoothed and polished. Wish I woulda bid more aggressively.


SWEET!
