1978 Cook Bros. Racing Mini

Rare 20" mini frame and fork

With "Bobby" Cook racing his Dad, Gary, and uncle Craig designed the mini frame and fork for those little guys before they could graduate to the standard 20."

Notice the frame pad barely fits on the top tube plus the fork will only allow 20 x 1.75 tires.  Features slotted adjustable brake bridge, Cook Bros. special sealed bearing spindle bottom bracket, mini handlebars, and 1st generation stem.
"To put it simply, this is the finest bicycle motocross frame you can buy.  It's light, strong, and thoroughly tested.  This frame is for the serious competitor who wants to be 1st at the finish and 1st in good looking equipment."  From the Cook Bros. catalog.
