GJS vs SE BUILD OFF (WOSBMX/Bicycle X Change) FEB 23rd 2019

Wichita Old School BMX and Bicycle X Change Present:
BMX Battle Build Off: GJS vs. SE

Last year we did an after hours event at BXC and two museum members (Da Missile and Mastercraft) built up two cruisers, and SE Mauler and a Patterson 24.  They brought them in and did a facebook life as well as facebook voting.  It was awesome, we had a killer time, and NOW it's time for a re-match!

Well, we took it up a notch this year. These guys are going to assemble the bikes AT the event.  The builds will then be judged in person by three local judges who are riders, collectors, builders or in once case a AA Pro!  So we definitely have some well seasoned guys looking these magical builds over. 
These are frame up restores with fresh powder.  And they will NOT disappoint.

You can watch live on facebook the night of the event.  OR if you are in the area, feel free to come to Bicycle X Change and check it out in person.

I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.  We're just the guys to do it.

I'm looking forward to this for sure.  Just need to brush up on my bike building skills and invest in a new pair of vice grips.  Thanks for putting on such a cool event.

Both frames are very nice refinished frames but the "531 Reynolds" decals are wrong on the Quad. This Quad style (1985-1996) are all 4130 Chromoly. The seat stays pass the seat tube and weld to the top tube.  A Reynolds Quad was available from late 82 (83 model) until mid year 85 until SE was ready to introduce your style of frame. The Reynolds frames were where the seat stays welded directly to the seat tube (not going past it like yours). Here's a pic of a Reynolds frame:

And a 4130 chromoly frame like yours (1985-1996)

Hey thanks Brian I'm thinking it will come off before the build.

It’s posted up on Facebook on the WICHITA Old School BMX Ride Facebook page. 
There’s 4 or 5 live video clips of it. 
Do a search on “WICHITA Old School BMX Ride” and you will find it.
