1993 Supercross SX-500 24

"Jessica Drew"

Remember the Spider-Woman cartoons of the late '70s?  If you do, you'll understand my inspiration for the name of this build.  Never bothered to discover the original color, but I got her powdercoated in pretty much the same red I got her in.  Authentic downtube decals, repro on the headtube that is so thin that the red of the frame shows through.  Welded by John Sevrin according to my research.  I am so happy with the way she turned out, but I may end up swapping out the bars for some different ones.  Shouldn't be using these crappy cell phone pix, but I didn't want to wait any longer to submit her.  I hope she's got what it takes to hang with those of bg707 and bamf227!
UPDATE 10/5/15 -- I changed the seat, added the pads and threw in some washers to give the seat stays some much needed clearance from the chain.  This baby is one SOLID ride, and (in my opinion) has gotten a little closer to attaining bg707 and bamf227 status!
UPDATE 10/14/15 -- Fittingly, I switched to some Odyssey Black Widow AA Pro pedals.

Re: 1993 Supercross SX-500 24

After some thought, I just realized that this bike rides amazingly, and it's light.  Right up there with my PR Cruiser as far as feel goes, with even less weight.  I think a 21.5" top tube is ideal for me on a 24".

Re: 1993 Supercross SX-500 24

Great bike!
I also have a Supercross cruiser - yellow.
When I was a kid, Ray Luscombe was the fast guy around Colorado.
I remember him and his brother, Ryan, on Titans when I "raced" and then Ray went on to ride for Supercross.  I thought the reinforced seat stays were the coolest thing!
Ray was super muscular and strong for a racer (back in those days anyway) so if the Supercross could withstand him, it could certainly shrug off anything I could do.
Excellent framesets for sure.
