Nov 10 2005, 09:46 PM
If I guess correctly, most of you dudes on here don't have wives??? That's my excuse. LOL.
Nov 10 2005, 09:47 PM
Front-end loader has big Cheng-Shin Knobbies ;-)
Nov 10 2005, 09:49 PM
I was given the choice "Bikes or girlfriend"
So, i'm single with a load of bikes ;-)
Nov 10 2005, 09:53 PM
PIX for Martin-bike ;-)
Nov 10 2005, 09:54 PM
Yeah, me too. Lots of bikes and not much common sense.
Nov 10 2005, 09:56 PM
Noooooooooo!!! Mr.BMX, you're cruel dude!
Nov 10 2005, 09:57 PM
Martin i have a profile head tube stickers with the clear backing if you need one
Nov 10 2005, 10:00 PM
I have a wife and kid..... but will swap for a mint looptail quad and a pair of NOS graphites ha ha ha
Nov 10 2005, 10:01 PM
Chris, yes please. I may do my own set of repros based on these.
I have a spare set of Santa Anna GT decals from Biagio if you want those? Not quite an even swap so maybe you can throw in that garbage gusseted early 80s chrome Robinson. Or we can sort it out with the 24" Ukai?
Nov 10 2005, 10:02 PM
lol...you can just have it..
Nov 10 2005, 10:03 PM
Nov 10 2005, 10:05 PM
Holy cow, what are you guys trying to do to me???
Dugga, can you post pics of your wife and kid?
Nov 10 2005, 10:15 PM
OK, here's the kid....
Nov 10 2005, 10:16 PM
OK, it's my 2,000th post so I thought I'd post a pic of my GHP cause that was my first build.
(it's changed a little since this pic) [ November 10, 2005, 11:17 PM: Message edited by: AndyDiamond ]

Nov 10 2005, 10:27 PM

Nov 10 2005, 10:28 PM
no got some today thanks anyway lolhehe
Nov 10 2005, 10:33 PM
here they are profile cranks hehehe
Nov 10 2005, 10:35 PM
so iam pretty sure i dont need cranks andy
Nov 10 2005, 10:36 PM
thanks for asking bud
Nov 10 2005, 10:59 PM
Ok - what do you mean by bits?
Stems are pretty hard to find unless you get those ones that come up on ebay all the time (not old school so not correct for an old school build).
Likewise Profile hubs horseshoe pedals etc.
Repop decals for those crank arms are easy to get.
Nov 10 2005, 11:00 PM
so what profile stuff do you need then Jas
Nov 10 2005, 11:24 PM
i think that was the best bit that i got with my NOS profile kit was NOS profile hubs..
Nov 10 2005, 11:29 PM
Awesome GHP Andy. Greg would be proud!
On the topic of Profiles . . . still looking for the black Champ Pro test from an Aussie mag. Thanks Mr.BMX for searching.
Is it true that Profile produced Hutch frame sets? Frame is the same other than the extra bar. Some fork models are the same also.
Nov 10 2005, 11:57 PM
Um - one of the Hutch guys would be able to fill you in on that Marty - there is some kind of tie in.
Thruster = Hutch etc....
Pofile made the Hucth Aerospeed arms etc...
Yeah, Greg Hill himself siad it was sweet - a nice compliment indeed.
Just gotta pop some NOS Hutch cages on the pedals and change the PPP chainwheel out for a power disc set up.
Nov 11 2005, 12:11 AM
Yes it is true. Here's a link to the unofficial history of Hutch.http://www.hutch-bikes.com/hutch_history.htm
Nov 11 2005, 12:15 AM
Johnny Ringo . . . cool name. A bike with that name would sell like hot cakes!
Nov 11 2005, 12:17 AM
I hope some-one is documenting all the decal options for current model bikes so in 25 year's time there will be a database that says, "the clear back Santa Ana goes on a ...."
Martin, I think I might move into risk management consulting as you must have far too much money. I bought a Diamond Back V-Link back in about '96 and I think GT was producing their first i-drives about then weren't they? Memory is not good but I remember admiring them but thinking they were soooo expensive. I nearly went with a GT Zaskar hardtail but decided on the full suspension.
Nov 11 2005, 12:32 AM
I've got every model class GT MTB made since 1996. Including a carbon i-drive and a carbon STS. I also have a Zaskar Team. I rode all of them but not anymore. All the frames will be framed on a wall one day . . . when I settle down in one country.
Waiting for my new Santa Cruz Nomad to arrive. Would love to post pics but Mr.BMX and Freestyler will spit chips! LOL
Nov 11 2005, 12:39 AM
Hey Martin, Love the GT frame before. I rode an I -drive (2004) last week for the first time. I couldnt believe how light they are.
Nov 11 2005, 12:47 AM
See Mr.BMX and Freestyler, there are others here that care. Mountain biking is just an extension of BMX. Many of the top pros were BMX racers from BITD.
Take Brian Lopes for example. That guy has been racing since he was a little kid. He's an awesome rider now and consistently wins 4X and previously, downhill.
Difference is you can ride in the most far out of places - places you can't get to by car or would take days to trek to. It's still got that "boys toys" allure about it - you know, tinkering with technology and grease. Plus it's healthy.
Also cool is being challenged by very scary bone breaking, blood letting stuff. Sometimes you stop and walk, sometimes you try, fail, crash and get hurt . . . but sometimes you try and you make it. It's a great feeling overcoming your fears with the bike skills you learnt as a kid riding BMX!
Nov 11 2005, 12:53 AM
ok i need for my nos profile xl champ
horse shoe profile pedals
profile seat clamp
1x diacomp in red eno mx 1000s
1x dx or sx levers in red eno
padset in the colour white or silver iam not fussy there lol
can any one help with any of this gear
Nov 11 2005, 12:54 AM
I think most mtb'ers are nuts. Some of the things they pull off are amazing. Then again people said that about me bitd!
Nov 11 2005, 12:55 AM
Don't worry, I won't post any more pics of MTBs here. Going riding tomorrow so will get my fix then.
So, anybody selling an Aero plate?
And . . . has somebody here done some repro decals recently? I was told that after the show, we'd be able to know. Please reveal . . .
Nov 11 2005, 01:04 AM
Ahh BMX rules
Here is GT I got this week
I'm not into freestyle at all, but I think you are allowed to have one of everything ?
Oh by the way its a mid 80's GT performer jr 16"
My little fella turn 3 next year so i think i'll be riding it for now ????
Nov 11 2005, 01:05 AM
Freestyler, don't you have a Champ Pro? What's an XL Champ - is this a later model?
Coastvl, mountain biking is fun! That's where martin-bike came from, a pun on the sound of mountain bike. LOL
Nov 11 2005, 01:06 AM
good luck on the horse shoe profile pedals Jas they go for BIG $$$ if they are for sale...
Nov 11 2005, 01:08 AM
Wow cool, I didn't even know they made 16" freestyle bikes. Now I want a kid so I've got an excuse to build more bikes.
Nov 11 2005, 01:09 AM
Champ pro has a 19inch tt and a champ pro XL has a 20inch tt..

Nov 11 2005, 01:15 AM
No and there is no serial no#
Nov 11 2005, 01:15 AM
The 83-85 do not have S# the rest do....i think thats right
Nov 11 2005, 01:17 AM
I was told it was 84 but the top tube is slanted at the back ?
I thought that was a Huntington thing
Nov 11 2005, 01:27 AM
so does that mean that my NOS champ pro is worth more money, lol
Nov 11 2005, 01:29 AM
Martin dose your Profile champ pro have a S#..??
