i do know a rumor of a trailboss frame thats been dumped in a garden local to me

waiting to find out exactly where so i can go make a offer :wink:

your best bet is ebay, www.radbmx.co.uk and most likely place to find one will be www.bmxmuseum.com

there was a complete sta on ebay for £350 the other day!

oh and the bike u pictured was darksunday's on rad, although i think he sold it on

@ its_kirby:

i've got a chrome standard sta for sale, don't know the year when i got him, late 90's i suppose., I bought the bike from my first "real" job, and how things goes: when you got a job, there's not much time for riding. so it's used, but not as often as i would have liked. :? I rode only / mostly half pipe at the time, which is a bit easier on the frame than dirt jumping or street riding. so frame is used, but not abused



its got blue g sport hubs on 48 spoked alex rims (got to check that out)
profile 3 pc cranck. forks and bars are also sta. decals are also blue,
primo seat, hofman straight seat post, and a crap 3 bolt mongoose seat collar.

got a dia compe u brake at the rear, and a u brake up front on a removable base plate. forks are to short for a rotor, but will include it in the sale.

I rode only / mostly half pipe at the time, which is a bit easier on the frame than dirt jumping or street riding. so frame is used, but not abused

mins: the moron at my lbs took the rear sprocket once off with a grinder, so he made a cut in the sprocket tread on the rear axle,
However, the axle works fine and you can't see the cut with the sprocket fitted
the current fitted sprocket is broken, so the sprocket needs to be replaced.

Intersted? looking for £500 or make me an sensible offer.

Wow, that 125 looks sweet, I don't remember it having a u brake though as I always thought it came with Vs as it was a race bike.

How much are you looking at price wise ?

I have got a frame which I'm hopefully going to build up 97/98 period correct (I still use the 1997 Profile cranks and Pitchforks that were on it!)

Semi tempted to sell it but I know the Mk1 Trailboss was quite a rare and sought after frame and I'd probably regret it the moment I let it go! I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I do see or hear of one for sale.

Know what you mean about the STA, was just slightly too burly compared to the Trailboss!
