Donnas650 posted a topic in Technical Q and AHi Guys, I apologise in advance for the limited information and may need to provide more as it comes. I am in the process of sourcing a Crisp Junior (frame/fork set only) which I plan to build for my daughter. Once I have it, I will be able to provide more details and am aware that I may not be able to get much assistance until such time as I actually have the frame in my possession. In the interim, my intention is to start building a parts list, so that I can start sourcing them when I can get them at a good price. Any help from those who know what I am trying to build, especially those who either raced in Queensland in the 80s or had kids who raced in QLD in the 80s would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to build a bike that was similar to what was raced back in the mid to late 80s when I raced. I raced a Crisp, but I was about 10 when I started racing whereas my daughter is 2 this Sunday. Now as this bike is for my daughter I am looking to buy items that are new or never used, so am happy to be flexible for something that looks the part, even if not the same brand, etc. I would prefer the same brand were possible. Pedals - Most likely like bear trap pedals - does anyone remember the ones that had the cage on the front and back, but not on the side? Grips - Ame (these will be easy enough) Seat - the tiny white ones that almost all kids used Cranks - Unsure what I used, maybe Shimano Wheels/Rims - Ours were super skinny. My cousin raced for SLA and he had the webbed tubeless tyres and his rims had like an soft arrow shape. Handle bars - the super low bars Sorry for the average description. I have attached a pic (number 55) to give you a bit of an idea of what I am trying to make. Any technical information such as brands, sizes, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt Another pic to give you an idea. Thanks, Matt
Hey guys, I posted this in my newbie post about a week or two ago. Thought you might like to check out this out. It is just over 50 mins. Sorry about the quality. My little brother is on my side hack. I was in the 10 year division. So much fun back in the day and such an awesome track, although I hear it has changed a lot. Awesome stack on sidehacks, plus you have the Cruisers and pit bikes. I have posted the youtube link, but due to some issues, I have also posted to my own domain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqxJpCgDg3E or http://runciman.com.au/bmx.html The interviews are worth the watch especially Dean Crisp and Leah Cheal's. Includes riders such as Dean Crisp, Jason McCallum, Neil Jenkinson, Wayne Knipe, Wade Bootes, Andrew Withers, Ryan Scott, Leah Cheal, Madonna Scott and others. Hope you enjoy, Matt
