The Bill Allen Signature Bike

Pretty Cool new bike..made by GAry Turner..
http://billallenbikes.com/bill-allen-signature-bike/

After years of trying, I am now able to bring a signature bike to fans. This bike is the result of decades of expertise behind the designers and builders, and believe me it is RAD.

Most folks who know me, it’s because of a bike themed movie I did in the 80’s and now that I am riding myself, I wanted to offer a bike that would satisfy both old school and modern freestyle riders, and here it is.

The Bill Allen signature bike was designed by someone who not only is a world champion BMX freestyler, but a designer of iconic bikes through the decades. Hall of famer, Martin Aparijo, has been a dominant force in BMX since the early eighties and continues to be an ambassador of
the sport. not only that, his biking skills have never been better, His expertise in the world of
BMX make him uniquely qualified not only as my teacher in all things BMX, but a great
proponent of the sport.

Martin and I have been planning something special for the hardcore old school bmx fans, who know quality when the see it. So who did Martin turn to build the bike once he designed it, with me and my fans in mind? He turned to someone whose name is synonymous with BMX, Craig Turner.

Craig Turner has got Chromemoly in his blood. Son of iconic builder Gary Turner (GT bikes) Craig knows about as much as building quality bikes as anyone alive.

Gary wanted to build a great bike for his son Craig, and that became a brand went on to dominate the industry. So the Turners only know about quality bikes, and now they run Gary Turner Bikes, where my signature bike was born. Quite the pedigree if you ask me.

Built in the US, with 4130 chromemoly, this is a dream for those who demand quality and deserve it. I feel that this is something that will be appreciated by fans for generations.

Price: $700 plus $60 shipping (Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery.)

760 is way too much for the frame and fork. Heck even complete is too much!

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

Wonder if it comes with a roll of yellow electrical tape?
Price does seem a little high..Cool idea...

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

I don't poo poo anything that brings someone joy and have nothing but respect for Bill. He does his weekly rides and treats the fans well.
But for that kind of money you could build a legit OG Cru Allen bike. As an indie offering a complete isn't feasible, but it'd make sense if it came with a pad set or a signed plate or something.

But I hope they do well for him. cool

all the Gary Turner stuff is expensive, seems like they do small runs of stuff mostly geared towards collectors, which is who this bike is aimed for. not my thing but i'm sure the people it is intended for will go for it

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

Don't see anything special about that set & the price is absurd. I mean the  frame doesn't have any similarities to the one from the movie & bill is not a ripper who's skills merit him having a model so.... whats the point?

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

$700 for a custom built in the US frame and fork by a bmx icon is cheap.S&M,Standard and FBM want more than that just for a frame.

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

It's a little out of my price range for a FF if was the whole bike pictured I'd be contemplating it. I really like it, and Bill Allen seems like an OK guy.

Does Craig Turner make these by hand? I think the chrome looks top notch.

You and I live in Canada.A decent aftermarket frame and fork cost more than $700 after tax.

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

Looks like a generic new frame and forks . Weird too there is not even a good picture of it and the complete looks a bike you would see for sale on craigslist. Could be at least advertised better and at least maybe even get some custom decals made. Doesn't look like he put much effort at all into this project for that price .I am just a average collector and I have custom decals made all the time and he could easily have a cool padset even made .  Kinda seems like a fail


I like studs ,brake studs that is .

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

I find myself confused by the seat guts. I understand it's a throwback, and that would explain the plate on a freestyle bike... or a gyro and front brake on a race bike. but there are obvious modern touches. Removable gyro tabs, 990mounts, 1 1/8 head tube all scream new school but the lack of a pivitol, or tripod seem like a cost saving measure more than image.

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

I just don't get why you would rush to post a picture representing your name with out at least building a bad ass bike to post on to promote sales .  I mean its got a mix of robbed parts off a bike Gary prob had just sitting at his shop and it has a water bottle holding it up so you can be sure it prob fell over right after the picture . These guys a history in the bmx world but in a nostalgic capacity so why make some weird hodge podge of features without one retro part . Like somebody is really going to buy that to take to the skatepark lol. He could have sold them easier making them replica completes of the original bike with a few minor tweaks and hell sell them with a limited number and signed shirt or something sad

The bike definitely doesn't look like a 750$ bike. This will probably end up like the iconix. (Bob Haro)

How much do those companies now charge for a custom frame? I know it's not cheap.

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

So it's a modern freestyle bike that imitates a race bike from a 30 year old movie?  If you ride it without the plate and pads(which don't seem to be included), would anyone even know what it's supposed to be??

Re: The Bill Allen Signature Bike

Hmm, Well..
What constitutes a custom frame? I enjoy riding bikes that Pro riders spend years developing myself.

S & M frames go for upto $449  http://www.sandmbikes.com/products/hardgoods/frames/

FBM has an excellent page: http://www.fbmbmx.com/products/frames/custom-frames.php
The price of your custom frame will start at $535.00 plus shipping with a non-refundable 50% deposit due before we start production; depending on which options you choose, your frame may cost more. The balance plus shipping are due prior to shipping your frame. It will take approximately 6-8 weeks from confirmation of your design until your frame will be ready to ship.  If you need help designing your custom frame, you can check the current FBM production frames or contact John at 607-257-3480 or john@lastcalldistro.com.

I did haveStandard Bykes build me a custom 24 version of the Hutch Judge.
They did it for $600, custom looptail frame to my specs and forks, in candy red..

http://bmxmuseum.com/image/side1_copy58_lg.jpg
http://bmxmuseum.com/image/dscn17625716f5fa26_lg.jpg

So really lots of custom options..just saying..

you're smokin dope dude. Customs can go up to that sure, but cheap? nope. And this isn't a custom in that sense, it is a run of pre-designed frame sets.

Angles? Top tube length? Fork rake? Decals, no decals?

And really? 2 month wait?? Come on now.

Yes people love Cru and a replica of his looptail, straight fork dropout bike with modern improvements would be cool ... Bill may be a great dude but most people don't care what bike he is riding right now.

Has he ever even become a member on any of the main sites? I think it is ballsy to assume this would fly.
