1993 Standard 125 Motocross

This is the 1st BMX Frame EVER to run a 1 1/8" fork & stem !!!!
Robbie Morales personal bike !!!

This is Standard Bicycle Motocross Prototype #001. This frame set was made by Waterford Cycles in 1993 for Rick Moliterno. This frame set is very special in many ways. This frame was years ahead of it`s time since it was the 1`st BMX frame to EVER run a 1 1/8" fork & stem. Another unique feature was that when Waterford Cycles made this frame they used left over tubing from the original Schwinn Sting frames from the 1980`s to build the rear triangle. The brake bridge was another interesting piece, prototype #001 was the only Standard frame ever to have a square brake bridge. The brake bridge was made from a solid piece of steel square stock and then hollowed out to make it lighter. This was alot of work for such a small piece it was just another example of Standards commitment to quality !!! These frames came as a kit when you bought them you got the frame, forks & stem. This frame set has it`s original curved bottom stem of which only a handful are known to still exist. This was Robbie Morales personal bike as he was the test rider. This bike was featured in many videos and magazine ads and it`s original color was Daytona Blue. At some point Rick Moliterno has this frame & fork stripped and cleared probably to check it for cracks and flaws after being test ridden. I have an original NOS set of 1st gen decals that go with this frame which gives me the option of restoring it back to it`s original Daytona Blue if I should decide to recreate Robbie`s old bike. I give Rick Moliterno a huge thanks for creating a BMX frame that changed BMX forever.

Re: 1993 Standard 125 Motocross

Now this is awesome!!!!!!  But Powerlite and GT weren't too far behind, as far as 1-1/8" threadless forks/headsets go.  My 1994 Powerlite Pro AL, which was most likely also manufactured in 1993 (since it has no serial number), was Powerlite's first pro sized frame to use threadless technology cool .  The 1994 GT Fueler was GT's first production frame to require a 1-1/8" headset.

Re: 1993 Standard 125 Motocross

I have seen it stated several times all over the internet that Standard was the first company to come out with the thread-less fork. Cool to finally see the bike that started it all. Where did they find a headset for it, being the first one? Did they have to make that as well?

Re: 1993 Standard 125 Motocross

Thread-less  was being used on Road bikes and mt. bikes years before bmx,  being WaterFord  was making standard stuff as well as mt. bike frames  well,  why not try it.   Same with  GT.


If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.....

Re: 1993 Standard 125 Motocross

I will probably bring it back to it`s former glory at some point. It has to be built as it was in the Standard ad I posted with robbie morales. I love the story about how it was built using original Schwinn Sting tubing and the story about the square brake bridge. I`m glad everyone is enjoying all the early Standard stuff I`m posting. I have worked very hard to make my collection what it is and I`ve done it not to say "Look what I have" I`ve done it to preserve key pieces of BMX history and also to help anyone to answer questions about early Standard Bykes products. I receive pm`s everyday with questions about Standard Bykes and I love it !!! I enjoy helping other people that love Standard Bykes like I do. Rick Moliterno set out in 1991 to build the best bmx bikes money could buy and he succeeded. smile

Re: 1993 Standard 125 Motocross

Awesome frame. What a cool piece of bmx history. Besides the square brake bridge and no canti mounts this frame doesn't look too much different my 2001 125 or the brand new ones. Glad to see that a company can make a killer, well thought out design that is made to last and function well. Keep up the good work Rick!
