1995 S&M Holmes

sweet mid school badass

I got this from a buddy from work who rode it as his main bike through his childhood. He just used it as a bike, he isn’t into bikes like most of us on here are. He moved to a new house a few years ago and I hadn’t stopped by yet. So one day I’m out on my Harley for a ride and I just popped in. On my tour around the place I saw a gt pedal sticking up out of a ripped up tarp behind his shop. I lifted the tarp a bit and saw profile cranks and then I saw the Holmes sticker! I was like dude you have a Holmes just laying here like this?!! He was like yeah so? I couldn’t believe it, so I asked to buy it and he didn’t hesitate.  I won’t say what I paid for it but I just had to rescue her. It was in such rough shape the cranks were seized and the pedals wouldn’t spin. It sat in mud gravel on its side for a long time. I wasn’t even sure if I could make it presentable but it was worth a shot. I think it turned out pretty nice. I saved as much that he had in it that I could. I don’t want a show winner just a nice period correct bike. He is mind blown at the way it looks now and is very happy to see it in good hands.

Re: 1995 S&M Holmes

Thank you so much! I wish I took before pictures omg it was in bad shape. It took a long time working on it off and on. My eleven year old son loves it and gets compliments on it when he rides it. My love for vintage things has rubbed off on him and that warms my heart. He likes patina and originality on all things and likes to think of the history behind the lives of cars and motorcycles and even bikes etc… when I describe how bmx was in the 80’s he lights up. I show him you tube videos and it’s like To him I was a rock star to grow up in that era lol.
