  10. so its an early cruiser then,by the time the 3rd gen 20" frames went to production they doubled the width of the rear dropouts to 4mm I think it was. 1st and 2nd gen 20" frames had thin dropouts,the only difference was the flanged head tube on the 2nd gen compared to straight head tube on 1st gen. the cruisers started coming into production with the 2nd gen 20" as they only made 20" pro,mini and AC interceptor in the 1st gen
  11. how thick are the rear dropouts?

  18. Its not everyday you have the owner of a company contact you and tell you that you have a prototype but that's what happened yesterday I have had a frame and fork in my possession for a number of yrs now and I could never quite figure out exactly what it was. It was suggested it could be a number of brands including RRR,well by a stroke of pure luck,I had a guy come and pick up some pedals,when he spotted it and said,"That's a RRR,I know the guy who used to make them and he gave me his name and told me to contact him,I sent him a msg with pics and he replied with,Yes it is a RRR,but didn't go into detail. It was then suggested I contact Mr Robielle himself,which I did. Russ got back to me last night with some info that made me a very happy boy. He proceeded to tell me I have a RRR prototype that was manufactured in Port Kembla before the manufacturer in Penrith went into production. All these yrs and persistence has paid off for me again. The first pics below are my proto f/f and the pics of the frame with cranks is how they ended up(courtesy of Mr Robielle). And the pic of the gate start,has the guy closest to the camera riding a RRR So I hope you enjoy the info and pics as much as I have solving this little mystery
  19. T/T on this is 19-1/2,the T/T length on the final product was around the 21" mark
  20. I would like to take the opportunity right now to give gratitude and thanks to the following 4 people Rick Ohlson for putting me in touch with the right person Clayton Aussel who confirmed it was a RRR and who's Dad was the manufacturer of RRR and Advantaj in Abel st,Penrith Darren May,who pointed me in the right direction at the right time and to the right person And Mr Robielle himself for taking the time out to reply with the information I was waiting to hear Cheers and Thanks Guys

  22. It takes a 20" wheel mate,you can only run a 1.75 tyre as it just about touches the bb I have been told that when these first appeared,there were some U.S. riders out here and they all rolled around laughing,until they got smashed and couldn't catch them. The RRR rider pictured above apparently had the gates dialled all day and was hauling it home
