26″ Morales flatland frame…I kid you not

2 06 2016

Well, this seems like one from left field…

A 26″ Morales flatland frame.

Yes, you read that right.

A frame just like the one Jesse Puente is riding on this 90s-era cover of Ride magazinebut in a 26″ model!

A BMX Museum member named GTeaser posted it up yesterday on one of the Museum’s forums.

According to GTeaser,

This frame was custom built by Craig Turner of Gary Turner BMX (GT Bicycles) and I must say, they did a flawless job. Craig is also currently constructing a 26″ Kore replica, zero offset, flatland fork to complete the frameset. I even had an ORIGINAL Morales cable hanger welded in that came from Bob’s warehouse. The frame/fork are 100% 4130 Chro-mo.

If the next thought you have after reading the above paragraph is,

“I wonder what Bob Morales thinks about this?”

Well, then my friend we are on the same wavelength.

But not to worry — at least according to GTeaser — Bob has given his blessing:

The project has had the full support of Bob Morales himself. I have been in contact with him during the entirety of the project and he expressly warranted me permission to use the Morales name. To the best of my knowledge this is the only 26″ Morales out there. This is a cruiser with cruiser geometry and is obviously not a purpose built flatland frame.

Pretty interesting.

Would love to see someone like Joe Cicman trying some modern-day flatland moves on this thing.

Looking forward to seeing this once it’s back from the chrome shop and all built up.

[…] You might also recall that I prefaced it with “I kid you not”…that’s because it was a 26″ Morales Flatland frame! […]
