Re: Score!! Rare Ultramax Cranks

I gotta say I'm not familiar with those suginos tubular - but I always said my interest window ends in 84.
But also that design was sorta passé by then - as so many other companies had come in with they're own inferior copies and killed the buzz - I remember seeing so many sr turbox set with they're pins ripped off an cracked or twisted procraft sets - the tiubular thing was over ... 3pc lead the market by 85

Re: Score!! Rare Ultramax Cranks

Don't get me wrong I still rode a bit into the f/s era, but I didn't follow as close since my interest in the sport was sorta fading - and my interest level grew in the sk8ing realm

Re: Score!! Rare Ultramax Cranks

Oh and Scott - I've owned mine for a short time (purchased on this site a yr or so ago) - I had always been in the market, but always came up short with oddball sizes I couldn't use in any of my applications...
Any who, ended up with a clean set of 175 2nd gen with the attached solid pin (like yours I believe) - serial 638 - to be seen shortly on my newest edition, if I can manage to find a straight post

Bump for the loveliness


The battery is discharging, the oil temperature is very high, the oil pressure is very low, water temperature is off the chart and I am running out of petrol...but the clock is correct.

Same question I had.
OP may have just deleted his account with Photobucket.

Re: Score!! Rare Ultramax Cranks

I absolutely love the story of Ultramax and Don Parscale.

I also love that over the years a thread will start about his stuff and go off the rails with mis-information, then Don himself swoops in, makes all necessary corrections and moves on to never be heard from again.

Long live Ultramax!

There's big 18 wheeler trailer. Wonder what's in it? And the remnants of a BMX track at the address.
