Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!

Not sure.  They came off of a 92 supposedly.


Threadless isn't "old school", sorry lol.  Thank you Linn Kastan, Scott Breithaupt, Bob Haro, Eddie Fiola, Martin Aparijo, Kevin Hull, Jose Yanez, Matt Hoffman & the rest for leading the way & keeping the flame lit.  Without you guys we'd have nothing.  (And one more thing; WHATS IT MADE OUT OF?!?! Aluminum? Hi-ten? Cro-mo? Titanium? PUT IT IN THE DESCRIPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!

OK. when I get my stuff squared, I'll see f this has been answered.  If not, I'll measure mine.


planetbicycle@yahoo.com

Would love to find my old Dirt Bike.  It was stolen in Pompano Beach, Florida in about 1996.  It's a '92 with the block graphics on a Green frame.  Pitchforks, Slam bars, King Headset, GT (DK-style) stem and GT/Profile cranks.  Superlace hubs.  Would really love to put this back in my collection.

Robinson collectors, I need a favor.  Could anyone please measure your factory stock Robinson cromo forks and tell me what the leg diameters are?  Looking for anything from say 88-92.  Trying to differentiate between something I have here.  Thanks!
I have 25.37mm's on mine.

My Robinsons jump from 1987 to 1994, nothing in the years you are looking for.  I could measure them if you want.

Yes, I'll take the 87's measurement, as I'm sure the threadless forks were always beefier.  (is that a correct assumption?)

Re: Lets Get A Robinson Thread Going!

Fellas, need some advice for my first build. I got the bug to build a old school bmx. Found 2 Robinson F/F combo in my price range.

1) late 91 Pro
2) 85 Robison JR with L&S fork 

I have tried to familiar myself with the brand as much as I can but not familiar with the JR model. Any info will help....Thanks in advance....
