1997 Unknown

my 2nd bike I planned to build. started as a bare frame found at a bike shop.

I found this unknown bare frame at a local bike shop for $25. I posted pics of it in the forum here rite after I got it & have checked several makes posted here every time I think I have a clue of who made it. But so far nada. I didn't have the cash when I saw it at the shop so I didn't get much of a look at it. I told my wife about it & the next day she picked it up for my b day gift. Pretty awesome surprise when I got home from work! What wasn't awesome was the condition of it once I actually had a chance to inspect it. For starters the head tube has a few gouges and there are a few dents here & there. Not a big deal....after all it's an unknown frame for $25 I didn't expect it to be perfect. However what I didn't expect was to find "bmx mafia" engraved all over it. But what the hell its chrome,rides nice,and it was cheap. The 1st build was with rims,forks, & 3pcs cranks from a vertical and bars/stem from a Mongoose Villain. I've made a few changes as I've picked up a few bikes but kept the Mongoose bars. I'll post pics of it together as soon as I finish its current rebuild.

That IS cool... cool


You know who you are.
Always looking for old promo bikes: rc cola, sprite, slush puppy, 7-11 etc. Dept store bikes as well.  Iso: schwinn 2pc drive shaft/ Western Flyer Freedom 2!
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Hoe's never close, they're open like hallways!
