1998 Standard 125 Motocross

125 Motocross one of the best bmx frames ever made.....period

Here’s pretty much my favourite bmx ever, a 1998 Motocross I bought while on Holiday in Florida. I bought it in 2003 from a shop I forget the name of but it was loaded with mid school gold.

Back then the pound was strong and when I enquired about the frame the lad said I could have it for $200 so back then it worked out at about £120!! Any standard frame in the UK was £360 plus back then so to say I was stoked was an understatement.
Although mid school wasn’t a ‘thing’ in 03’ (technically still mid school era!?) I always loved the older standards and preferred them to the current stuff available at the time. This frame was a bit of a game changer for me as my previous bike was a 2001 trls 250 which weighed nearly 7lbs vs the 5lbs or so if the motocross so when I built it the difference it made to my riding was amazing.
At the time the light weight trend was just starting and I didn’t set out to build the bike light it just was due to the frame and fork.
As I already had a 250 this was supposed to be just a ‘sunny day’ bike but the way I could ride that thing compared to the 250 was unreal so I basically rode it solid for the next four years.
It’s the frame I learned to air high on and I have so many good memories of shredding it and learning new stuff. Unfortunately I ended up riding it to death and it snapped, I was gutted.
True to their word standard hooked me up with another frame. It was never going to be like the motocross though.
The bike went through a few changes of wheels and pedals etc before it settled to the spec listed below and shown in the pic of it against the garage door.

Really cool setup. You took pics of the frame before you rode it? (with the card still on the frame).
