Yeah I've seen that pic and those decals on them but never seen them on a real persons forks. LOL I've seen the three in my pic earlier.
I think Jeff is a friend of greyboy. His brother is on Facebook.
Volcano
...working out a possible new build/colour combo....SLA frame (in OG factory orange) with Alloy Tange Mity Lite forks, Win NOS bars, Shimano 600 cranks, Nitto stem, Shimano brakes & black Z-rims...

pr200
Looks good Mick....

Its a mini yeh?

B
Brisben
Mick I reckon maybe some alloy bars and post - the rest is perfect

I particularly like the choice of a black cable to tie it all together

Are you aiming for around 83ish?
Volcano
Yep....around 1982-83 (Tange Mitylite forks are 1982)
Alloy bars could be on the cards mate....and a 13/16th alloy seatpost too......and as Glenn suggested, a black Tange seatclamp.


Its a mini...Ben.............Mark (Mr SuperLA) says its one of the only known Original orange painted frames from his Dad known to surface up on the forums (unless someone else has one hiding in their stash...lol)
COASTY
The pedals are cool pedals but a lot of minis had MKS or KKT alloys. DX were more a pedal for the bigger kids. I dunno, just thinking out loud.
Volcano
I have a set of KKT's in alloy....I agree, the DX are too big for the build. good3.gif
DAVEGT96
HEY GUYS, WHATS HAPPENING? IV GOT A MATE WHO HAS ACQUIRED A CECIL WALKER RACER BIKE, LOOKS LIKE '70S OR '80S, DOES ANYONE KNOW MUCH ABOUT THESE BIKES? ANY INFO WOULD BE APPRECIATED, CHEERS.
Volcano
Not sure Dave....is it a VBMX or roadbike?


Jarvi - I reckon u need a Hattori 1982 Trials BMX....... biggrin.gif




Jarvi
Cecil Walker is a bike shop in the Melbourne CDB. Other than that I don't know anything about them.

I wonder about the people bike companies get to build their bikes for adverts. Surely some-one would have looked at the seat angle and said, "that doesn't look right."
OldSkoolRoy
Hattori???? Is that pro sight? COOL.....didn't realise that. smile.gif

Yeah rito, nice man. Just had a look, very interesting. Sounds like an interesting bit of gear. Thanks for that. Cheers man.
Volcano
Woohoo! NOS 1980 Large Pro arrived today...(with USA issue blue prismatic stickers)

Has dual dropout forks too.

Big thanks to Waz & Rick C. biggrin.gif

very nice Mick!!

Thanks mate good2.gif
(did u get the FMF pic I sent you?)
ACGTO
Very cool Mick.
Volcano
Thanks Adam..............(did u see Donny Schatz race at Speedway the other night? - he won at Archerfield)

I love the blue decal look Mick, can't say I've seen that before.
Good pick up.
Kurt.
Awesome Mick.

Blue decals only seemed to turn up in the states during 1980. Have seen a few survivors though so they were definitely official, just rare. Mind blowingly rare when NOS!
COASTY
Love it. The blue suits the frame nicely.
ACGTO
Hey Mick. Jaxon noticed those results. He's hooked on the sprintcars as well now.

We've got the Presidents cup here on wednesday night, then the Classic at Warrnambool this weekend so we'll get our fix over the next week.
broke L345
yes I did Mick, now I just need the FMF.
Lewis
Hmmm nice DB. But never heard Sandy RIP. or Ramon ever mentioning those decals there were red lettering fonts too BITD but found out they were a UK addition and nothing to do with DB.
Kurt.
Quite a few US survivor bikes have turned up with those decals Lew.

I have no doubt they were available from new for a while in 1980 on some frames. Whether they were actually officially made by Centurion/Western States Imports/Diamond Back is of course another issue.

Very cool though nonetheless - especially NOS.
Lewis
Yes I'm with ya on that prob not official but nice all the same.
Volcano
Lewis
What a lovely sight.
Lewis
Lewis
And the UK take DB red decals not official DB release.
Jarvi
I never realised the Diamond Back seats had the holes in a diamond shape. Kind of makes sense I suppose.

Lewis, a good time for you to post the photos of your DB line up again.
Lewis
Dont need to be asked twice LOL.

Jarvi
Was never much of a DB fan back in the day, however, the vinyl pads have to be the best looking ones around.
Lewis
yeah they were nice. I could never find a NOS set of the black/silver. And reprops were never going to be an option.
Lewis
.
pr200
Wow, sweet DB's!!!!!

And a SENSATIONAL Frameset Mick....Congrats on acquiring that one....

I am a sponge for old school BMX knowledge, love to learn new stuff but am a little confused, are the blue prism decals on Micks frame an after market product or similar or are they a factory option?

There needs to be a BMXPEDIA for reference so I can continue to learn...lol

Its been a bit slow around here lately, surely a few peeps have the odd cracker on the go..........show me please!!!

B

ps: Adam I am looking at you....bike porn please!~
Kurt.
Well, so long as we are on DB porn. Here's that NOS black silver set you couldn't find, and some other goodies.





















Plus lots of stems, frames and forks that I cbf pulling out of the shed to photograph!
COASTY
beautiful stuff Kurt. I do like a DB. Just never thought of having one! Like Kuwaharas. I want one of them too.

For now I'm playing with a Hotfoot cruiser. I will tidy it up and ride it to work.
Jarvi
Classic Harry Leary, I love it.

Anyone been following Warnie's run in with a cyclist? It's all right for him to whinge and moan on Twitter however when the cyclist presents his side of the story Warnie says 'whatever' and 'time to move on'. What a tosser.

So how are we supposed to describe a female dog? Surely honey badger is not the correct way... The mind boggles.
Kurt.
Yeah following it casually James.

Warne is a dead set tool.
Lewis
Nice pics and stuff of DB must call in and see your collection Kurt.
Volcano

Shane has had his day in the sun and finds it hard to let go of, a brilliant cricket mind on the pitch but away from it he is a tad loose.

I am a huge cricket fan (and that did include SW) but was so over his self promoting and airing of all his laundry that i "un-followed" him on twitter, huge task for me as he popped my twitter cherry so to speak, he was the first peep I followed...........bt damn the boy does not give up, drove me nuts!

**RANT OVER**

Love those DBs' . Nice to see the dedication .

On to the overpaid whinger , and as a cyclist that was nearly killed by a car , S. Warne NEVER takes responsibility for his misdeeds . Look at his history , one thing after another , " me mum did it " , " everyone's out to get me " and other tired excuses . If you look real close at his face during the interview , you can tell he is lying .

Dear Aussies,

Which cities and/or tracks in Australia would be the best places to visit to get a feel for the BMX scene in that country? I want to plan a trip around these sites. Any guidance is appreciated.
COASTY
Hey mate. Welcome.
In my opinion the best places would be Brisbane/Gold Coast or Sydney. Both have a great scene and the tracks are world class.
Melbourne also has a good scene. Just remember our weather is all arse about compared to yours too. Bloody hot right now.
Kurt.

The beginning of my 1980 John Crews Redline Proline replica with NOS real deal Haro Lightning Bolt number plate - my grail of grails. I can't bring myself to open the package.

Beautiful frame Martin. Love the plate too.
