Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

I've been inspired by some of the builds here so I'm starting to build this frame I just found, a 96 Dyno Compe.  It was spray painted white, hopefully that's not a bad sign.  I have frame, forks, bars, stem, crank and seat post.  I'm trying to use all period parts if I can, and since this bike isn't that valuable I'm trying to do it as cheaply as possible. 

Here's where I'm at ATM, got it yesterday and started working on it

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

Good cleanup so far - you're off to a great start.  I got your PM so here are a few suggestions.  On my first few builds I looked through all the models on the site and copied the one(s) that inspired me the most.  If you do that all the parts fall into place and you'll end up with a bike you're proud of and enjoy riding (or just staring at).  Craigslist will be the best place to save money on the parts you're looking for but you may have to shop for a long time.  Try the For Sale section here or eBay to move a little quicker.  Lastly, use sites like porkchopbmx.com, planetbmx.com and bmxguru.com for new and retro parts.

Good luck and welcome to the museum!

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

It's taking me a while to put together my 95 slammer and I'm still not done, your bars look vfr or something similar...but, right now, I've noticed Dynos are still relatively cheap on Craigslist (except pretzel bars tongue ) and like wired said, here would be your best bet, there's quite a few deals on brakes going on lately!!


I'd go with skyways, or 48's if you can find them...good luck with your build!! Looks great so far!!


Good things wait for people that happen!!

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

Check the serial # because I'm not sure that's a '96.  I've owned two '96 Compe(brand new in 1996 and a survivor I bought last year) and both came with 1" threaded forks and Dyno inverted stem.

The dropouts also look different:

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

The serial number does indicate it's a 97 now that I look at it (S7F) so you're absolutely right Tony

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

You can get a Gyro that works with the threadless headset.  For the brakes, Diacompe Bulldogs would be a correct and inexpensive option.  No set of 3 piece cranks will be cheap but you can find some for around $100 that would go with the bike.  I put spokes on my survivor but I really like the GT Stealth mags that came on Dynos around this time.

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

There's a nice pair of chrome 3-piece cranks with a 19mm bottom bracket for $70 here.  I've never ordered from bmxguru but may soon.

Ordered a few times from bmxguru. Had an issue one of the times and he did whatever he needed to resolve it.

Customer service was great. Highly recommend him.

I have ordered from bmxguru many times, ships really fast and I have never had issues.

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

Just wanted to update with my progress, I put this project off for a really long time and finally started putting it together.  Still needs a few tweaks before it's a good rider.  I'm still trying to find a headset that fits right with the 1 1/8 fork and trying to get the Gyro set up right, but it's coming together with the old school look I was after

I love the decals. The '88 graphics were always my favorite.

Nice ride.  Speaking of retro, can I bring some crates over and help you clear out some space?  Those records need stored vertically, then nothing on top of the crates.

I destroyed my Murray and Huffy bikes as a kid in the 80s while my friends rode nice bikes..  Shitty gear can cause injury and hurt your children. Hurting your children is child abuse...  Don't abuse your children!

Haha.. I actually just rearranged everything and they're vertical now.  Those are just my leftovers and not the "good stuff" if that makes your feel better wink

Re: Starting my first resto - 96 Dyno Compe

It's pretty much finished now.  Added a 2000 Pro Perform fork bought here on the museum, along with Dia-Compe 990 front brake.  Now it's my designated rider

Skyways for show, spokes for go.
