Spy photo of Model-C front brake forks

10 08 2010

Bobby Parker from Sunday/Full Factory hinted about these in the comments recently when I posted about missing my front brakes.

Well, now we have a spy photo of the prototype Sunday Model-C forks with 990 mounts that he’s currently testing!

Bobby says they’ve been running great and Eben Krackau also has pair that he’s testing. No word yet on release dates but keep it tuned here for updates.

Sweet custom SE Quadangle cruiser

2 09 2009

Every once in a while you come across something that makes you grin from ear to ear…this is one of those finds. Surfing the web one day, I came across this sweet custom SE Quadangle cruiser in one of Vintage BMX’s forums. Talk about retro-cool!

24in custom quadangle

The owner, who goes by the handle, “rockabillyjay” describes his modifications as follows:

I added 990 mounts, cable stops, turned the forks into “Standing Gear,” clearanced the bottoms for some big pegs  ( I wear a size 13) , made the top tube platform, and of course..a coaster brake tab. I didn’t do the rear frame standers since they always got in my way…and this was a looptail anyway.

To say rockabillyjay did a great job customizing his 24″ Quadangle is such an understatement. I think he may have set the bar for a lot of the new retro-cool builds popping up.

And every time I look at this I get a flashback to that old Freestylin’ cover from the ’80s with Todd Anderson jumping the car full of SE dudes.  Awesome!
