2018 Supercross 450Z

Beastliest Race Rig Ever.

Bill Ryan (such a rad guy to say the least) sent me this frame out of nowhere in 2018. My plan was to build it as my next race bike that would stay in California instead of always taking apart/shipping my 2013 450Z Prototype from Maui. Well a couple big injuries on top of other variables that happened from 2019-2021 kept me from racing so I wasn’t in a huge rush to build it. But , as I always am with my bmx builds… I am VERY particular with the parts. But what always happens is in searching for certain parts , other parts find me that makes the bike seem to build itself. And on this occasion , I made some of the parts (1 you can see , two you can’t). Thank you Bill Ryan to sparking the life of Supercross BMX , this specific build , and to everyone who made it possible for these parts find each other to now call this beautiful beast their home.
Parts list is as follows :2018 Supercross XXL 450Z Race Inc.
