Thanks for reading.
Yesterday I picked up this frame from a LBS.
It was sold to me as a '96 Holmes.
Frankly I can not tell the difference between the dirtbike & the holmes.
The serial number is SMD 6772. The "D" leads me to believe it's a Dirtbike but I don't know.
The TT length is 20" and the rear lower stay measures 15" from center of BB to center of rear drop.
TT diameter looks to be 1 1/4" od.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, that is a Dirtbike. Holmes would have a 21" TT and HXL serial number.

Thats a cool find. I think wagonguy is right on. I was only thinking about the chain stay being longer but a holmes should definitly have a longer TT also.

Yep, a Holmes has a longer TT. At the time, it was one of the longest TT in regular production.
