Hi Jas Not only did Chris give the Eagles plenty of advice he lent us the floodlights from Wheels for our 'famous'race in the November mud.
You guys are making me feel a really old lady but stirring up great memories especially of Derby champs 1983,Sorry Dale. Berta.

Never mind you feeling old Berta, the last time I saw some of these riders they were smaler than my kids are now! I do remember camping on the car park at Derby that year, the club had a good weekend with Derick and Lloyd winning. Sound like an old man now,

Ok Jas I do sort of remember some mates of Steve's, I did see his face a while back now :roll: :wink: and that brought back memories of him from the team and the track, do you speak to him or not ?

rare frames

Postby chriskelley » 06 Apr 2005, 04:54

I have what I believe to be the only ssp stryker left. They were made in Evansville IN. in I think 1981. they made only a few and they were made of aluminum and they had problems with them breaking. So we bought I think the last one and had it heat treated and I raced it for 2 years. it has a 70# weight limit

Rare Frames.what you got?

THOMBSIE wrote:does anyone remember the frames that were made up at birmingham wheels?not sure if they were for general sale or they just made a batch for team riders,be intersted to know if any of them were still knocking about.had a couple of the mini frames but there long gone now.

Just to let you guys know i put a Birmingham Wheels frame and forks on ebay at the start of the week it ends on wednesday i think!

They were available to the public. I can remember a bike test in Racer and Freestyler when they rated the frame and forks quite highly.

Most famous team member was Anthony Sewel American Pro.
Raced for Wheels on the Kelloges and a season of proclass.

My Frame and Forks were also raced on the Kelloges by a Girl who rode for Wheels, Need to watch the video again to refresh the old brain as i can't remember her name.
Bike was brought from her at the Children in need race at Sennlys Park. 87 ish?

Hey - sorry to open up an old thread... has anybody got any more information on the Birmingham Wheels frames by any chance? (...or any stashed away that they might like to sell?)

I'm after size info more than anything else. I believe they did a Mini, Standard, Long and XL. I am trying to work out which frame i have as i have one that i am restoring currently. There is very little info out there on them. I believe there is an advert in the programme for the 83 Euro's at Brum Wheels if anybody has a copy of that? Bit of a long-shot i know....

Cheers - any info or contacts appreciated 8)
