1992 Boss 24

chrome.

I bought in 92, and have loved it since. Easily the best riding cruiser I've ever owned (besting my PL-24, Floval Flyer, Elf, and Free Agent).  The 1st race pic is from the NBL Regional/National in Jacksonville Florida, 1995, 25-29 cruiser class.  The second is from a Homestead, Fl. state race in 95.  For some reason there always seems to be a Cyclecraft in the background.  Oh, yeah, that's right.  I live in Florida...
Frame:  Boss cruiser, chrome.  Modified to run 990s
Fork:  SE Landing Gear, chrome
Bars: S&M Gay Bars, chrome (which I'm still running on my Standard)
Stem: DK XL Invert
Post: Unknown brand Layback micro adjust crmo, chrome
Seat:  SRP
Cranks:  Boss, 180mm, chrome (still running on my Standard)
Spider: Boss
Chainwheel: Proneck, 40t, black
Wheels:  24x1.5 chrome Sun Chinooks laced by John Kovachi to a set of 1st gen Phil Wood hubs with stainless double butted spokes
Tires: 24x1.75 Comp III front, 24x1.5 Primo VTrack rear
Grips: Jive Handles
Brakes: Dia Compe 990s with Brake plate, mounted behind the BB.  This setup not only stopped on a dime, but did wonderful things for the center of gravity.

Awesome race pic - I don't know much about cruisers, but you look fast on it!

Re: 1992 Boss 24

Thanks.  Yeah, that was me BITD.  I had the destinction of being the fastest short guy in my class.  Everyone who was consistantly faster than I was was over 200 lbs. and 6' tall. (I'm 5'7" and about 160 there), fortunately I had skills on the bike, so I always made up ground in the rythm sections...

This bike popped up on the museum opener, and I just had to post again.  I love those old school track pics.  I think you added the head-on shot - good stuff.

I put the OG stickers (which it came with) back on after I gave it an oxy bath.  The 90's stickers had crappy glue on them and didn't last very long.

Re: 1992 Boss 24

The parts list you have for this bike, was that for 'back in the day'? 
I see from you last post that you sold it. How does that work if the person who bought it wants to put in on the museum, can there be 2 bikes in the museum with the same serial number?hmm


looking for first gen bullseye pedals, reissued OK, or Bob Reedy 2007 reissued pedals by helix.
