    What bike is this?

    Hi gang,

    I bought this bike recently, but have no clue as to what one it is. I think it's a Specialized, but it's been repainted...so the decals are no longer on it.

    Cheers for any insights.

    Don't think it a Specialized, but I could be wrong. Check out www.danscomp.com there are plenty of frames to look at and you may find a match!

    Good Luck!

    Old fogey corner

    Arrrgghhh...

    It's one of those horrible things with little wheels that kids leave lying across the entrances to shops when they're not riding through Faversham without lights...........

    Sorry, it's probably just me getting old...

    Cheers Fubey,

    Yeah, it looks pretty simular...I think this BMX is pre 2000 though. It's difficult, because I haven't actually got the bike in my hands as of yet as I won it on Ebay..should be getting it sometime next week.

    If you look closely, it has Specialized cranks on it, and saddle. Ofcourse, these might be aftermarket parts...I'll have to have a closer look when I get it. Cheers for looking though mate

    Yeah, when I was comparing the two I didn't think yours was the same year, I am guessing 98 or something. But the frame has similar design. Whatever though, congrats on your success at ebay. I may try to get my hands on a BMX bike if I can. Cheers!
    Booyah!!

    actually the truth is, a bike is not a bike. Some huffy from k-mart wont last no hardcore rider more than a week, yet will last a kid that wants to get from school and back forever.

    just depends on the rider

    Well further investigation shows that it's a



    Specialized Fatboy 4130...99 edition. It's either the Pro or the standard...either way, I really like it...

    Cheers
