Royce Union Info Thread!

I noticed that the museum seems lacking on info about 90's to 00's royces, so i decided to share my knowledge.

RU was based in Hauppauge, NY, but their bikes where made in taiwan. their frames where steel with 1" headtubes, and 7/8" seatubes. almost all late 90's RU's said FS360 Pro Series, followed by the model, torch, slash, freestyler. around 2000 they started using SHR Pro Series as their model followed by models like, FX760. their 90's bikes where regular platform frame designs, but they started to change from the normal design, to the "fishbone" design on the SLASH (my favorite royce), to the final loop design on the later models. until around 97, they made landing gear rip off forks, then they started making big and thick dropouts to accept pegs. around 98 they started putting SST ORYG stickers on the forks, because they where equipped with gyros. Many components said Husky, sometimes followed by chromoly. i included a photo of some RU components, and then frame design photos. please make this a sticky. big_smile

Re: Royce Union Info Thread!

the orange one is a close match to the "T-18 ADVANCED Freestyle"  what's with the naming?

I thought their whole purpose was to rip-off GT looks for discount price stores.

Not a really bad bike, better quality then most toy/target store bikes I guess. The husky name was wierd? 

Very unique parts design/look sort of royce'sh ...easy to spot.

Re: Royce Union Info Thread!

Is there a website I can go to to find some ORIGINAL parts for my RU fx760, I've been searching and I keep getting the run around. plus, do you think Candy Apple Red would look good with White lettering will look good. Just wanted to ask to see some replies.

Re: Royce Union Info Thread!

I bought this 99 RU Slash F1360 this less wheels, cranks and pedals from Wired. It's pretty sweet. He certainly made it better than it was new.
Here's how he built it, I'm still waiting for parts in the mail so i can finish it off smile

Re: Royce Union Info Thread!

I've got a Royce Union (I thin......hmm)

http://i882.photobucket.com/albums/ac24/pauladiver/KGrHqNmEE3HT2oHCMBN6RZh6Z1w_3.jpg

I'm guessing it's early 1990s, but I agree it's difficult to get info on them.

Re: Royce Union Info Thread!

It took me a while to figure out how to post the pics.
This is my 1999 Royce Union Slash FS. It was my birthday present when I turned 17. just pulled it from under my mom's house and cleaned it up a bit.
