So Luis, where is the Hutch stuff?

lol
KOSY-MOTO
Andy: LOL.. hehehe.. coming soon!!.. As I said above.. handling still in progress.. 24's 20's etc.. even though I don't know much about Hutch I maybe looking forward for swaps.. ?... Plus 8-10 more plates.
Jarvi
Good stuff Luis, always wanted one of those Hutch helmets and had to settle for the red version of Stu's Premier helmet.

Redlineoz, hope your boy gets better. Hospital isn't a place for an 11 week old.
Pete Porker
Hi guys, for those of you in Melbourne, my band is playing down there this weekend, on Friday 8th headlining a 12 band bill at the Espy in St Kilda, I'll be onstage at 1am ! Then on Sat there's a huge all ages show at Mooroolbark Community Centre, starting around 3pm, Porkers on at 9.30pm.
Sydney - we're at the Annandale hotel on Dec 29, and then at the BMX Games on Jan 27 !
KOSY-MOTO
Jarvi: Well it could be yours at the right price or trade

Pete Proker: Glad to see you back.. Oh when did this tread become a gig guide? hehehe LOL
Jarvi
If it comes hanging off an Hutch XL24 then I'll get very serious about it.
KOSY-MOTO
hehehe.. and I will be Superman.. hehehe
Kurt.
Hey Fellas.

Brian - that's tough . We had our youngest in for surgery when she was 6 weeks old. Sympathise with you mate - definitely not a place you want to spend a lot of time with a young one. All the best - I'm sure they'll get to the bottom of it. We may complain about the medical system in Oz, but really it leads the world.

On the BMX front fellas. I know the supply of Tioga Comp 3s is drying up around the place, but what about the old imitation comp 3s (Cheng Shin etc) in black with gumwalls?

Are they getting hard to find? I only ask cos' I'm on to about 8 sets (2.125 & 1.75).

Cheers Kurt

Brian, sorry to hear about your little one. My boy is going in next week. He's excited but I'm not at all.
Hope everythings fine buddy.

Kurt, I think they're still around a bit. If the price is right you'll unload them easy enough.
AndyDiamond
You can get the Cheng Shins from Ginny's - US $10 each.
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah $10USD.. plus $66.50 for postage.. which is fair enough hey Andy?

Hey Brian.. hang in there buddy.. those little fellers are pretty tuff!!..

Long time no see www.... martino...
did I mention I collect number plates? hehehe

HowardinOz
Cool score Luis!
You're having some good finds of late.
Hey Brian, he'll be fine. My boy was in an oxygen tent and tubed when about 1 week old. Scary time...can't do anything to help!
He got a bad cold from a mate of mine when he visited. He should have known better than visit when there is a new born around and he had a bad cold! I was pretty annoyed with him for that.
Now, my Son 6 1/2 is about 2" taller than his 9yr old sister!!! I reckon it's the oxygen. Happened to a few others I know also! The oxygenated kids grow up to be pretty big!
I hope all goes well. It's a HAROwing time! Hee! Hee!

Howard
P.S. Yes, I still want it!
Kurt.
Hey thanks fellas - I can get them for $9.99AU with no postage, so I'm thinking they'll make some good OS looking cheap tyres for riders. Not keen at all on those 20" black wall comp 3 style tyres you see everywhere. Had no plans to sell them - but you never know I suppose.
Thanks Kurt
Kurt.
I'm also on to a pair of blue ones with gumwalls for the same price and a handful of genuine Tioga Comp 3s. You guys having trouble finding gumwall Tiogas nowadays?
Kurt.
Hey Howie - what's up - did we have another disappearing thread that so much as featured a picture of a JC Oddangle? ***?!?!? Can't find the VRP thread in Retro anymore?!?

Cool Luis - those Arayas and Son-Lites look the biz.

Is that one of those Profile stems?

Lookin' good mate!
KOSY-MOTO
Thx Kurt-tee.. I have another set on evilBay up for grabs cheap

Checkout the main thread.. YEP killer stem
Jarvi
Looking good Luis. Great cranks aren't they? But heavy as hell. Can i have the wheels please?
KOSY-MOTO
Jarvi: YOU building a 24?... Cranks are oaky...
Jarvi
There might be something in the future ;-) Probably easier to say, "what aren't I building?" It's getting a bit out of hand, not to mention out of storage room as well.
Mr.BMX
son-lite copies on a repco frame .... ;-)

Now the bike's finished, you need to pack the wheels and ship them out to the winning bidder on evilbay huh????

***?.. its a CyclePro.. alot of nevy I see
Mr.BMX
ooops sorry, i just put cyclepro decals on my repco, now i got as cyclepro too hehehehe

Envy?? nope!!!
HowardinOz
Hey Kurt! Yeah...another one bites the dust!
I don't know if it's because of TL and the Ladyboy thing or not. Don't imagine SE publicists and exec's would be really happy about that!
Luckily I copied the entire thread. Just incase this happened and certain people tried to deny it.
I was really disappointed. Although, I had my suspicions! I know we're not all angels...we are human! However, there are many young readers on here and I thought people in the industry were trying to promote BMX as a 'family' sport/activity! Guess it depends on the 'type' of family you stem from huh?!

Luis, great lookin' build bud. Don't care what brand it is OR what stickers it's wearing...looks nice!

Howard
KOSY-MOTO
alot of F_U_Ckd Up envy ppl here in Oz...
bullyhotrod86jh
nice build osamie all ways love a nice set of wheels.

he guys ebaylink
hey is this a realistic price for one of these?
because i have one not nos, but only other issue is it seems to be for the smaller headtube.
as much as i'd never seen one before i wouldn't pick em worth that, or just an bayer with dollar filled eyes.

[ December 06, 2006, 07:39 AM: Message edited by: bullyhotrod86jh ]
COASTY
We all know Repco didn't make them and Tange made frames for a gazillion companies. So why isn't it a Cyclepro??? Huh??
It has a riveted badge on the front and a US guy just said he has one too.
Give it a rest Marty.
I like it.
Mr.BMX
No envy for a repco dude ;-)

If you can't tell the diff between the tange/repco issue and the cyclepro issue, then it's no use arguing with the uninformed.
As for headbadges, and repco's being rebadged to support cyclepro's shortage, i'll leave it for you to investigate deeper.

Anyway, like many other frames that AREN'T what they APPEAR to be, i'm just suggesting not to pass it off as a ridgie-didge, thats all.

Glenn, shutup ;-)
KOSY-MOTO
Yo Marty: OKAY so the Kuwahara 24 which has the same drop outs as the Cyclepro is a Repco too?

DUDE I don't see you posting any builds?.. when was the last time you posted a WOW factor build?...

It just goes to show envy on a top class build

Bully: isnt that proie stuff for sale?... Kuwahara headset not bad
bullyhotrod86jh
yeah supposably waza pm'ed me abut it being prosites.

what's the story behind this cyclecraft, repco. they both built by tange or something, anyone got a link to the story?

this hasn't got anything to do with the one you thought was a diamondback initially has it?

thanks for the support guys, the little tacker is doin ok at the moment, we all getting there. at 4.34am...

cheers brian
no problem howard its here for you
Kurt.
There is no way that's a Repco. The quality of welding and dropouts scream Koizumi Factory, Japan.

Repcos were a Taiwanese build, Cyclepros were Japanese. Granted the geometry is similar but Repco's have a different gusset (with cutout) and the Taiwanese didn't ever use dropouts like that. Even today the low end steel BMX frames out of Taiwan have the dropouts with the triangle cut out.

The Japanese weld as well or better than anyone in the world.

I've got a Repco 24 and Luis' build isn't one. The "DB" is another story.

Very cool Cyclepro build Osamaie.
KOSY-MOTO
Bully if you look at the badge on the CyclePro it's totally different from the Hotfoot/Diamond Back. Even those most 24's that period did have the same drop outs..
KOSY-MOTO
Thanks for the thumbs up Kurt-tee.. YOU know it's a shame when you totally put your heart and soul into a build and make the time to post & share pix with your so-called mates and feel alot of jealous/envious within this group!.. A real shame!

Thanks
