A lot of you guys have been asking about my STA frame i have so i decided over the next couple weeks i'm gonna rebuild it...this build is for you guys.
I got this frame in 1994 for Christmas (i was 9) and I've had it ever since. I've rebuilt it twice over the last 18 years and this time i'm gonna rebuild it and hang it up in my mancave once it's finished being built.
Right now it's a frame with a OG S&M seat post, FSA Pig headset, Profile bottom bracket and honestly i have no idea what forks but they're getting trashed and replaced with some Standard Bash forks if i can find them. I'll be looking for an old Standard stem too that came on the bike when i got it, so if anyone has any idea where to get one just let me know. I have some S&M Butler bars (from 1998) and then the rest will be replaced with anything from those years that i can find.
Here's a few pics, consider it day 0 of my build.
Back before Standard used 14mm dropouts, back in the day when 14mm became a huge success i wanted a 14mm rear axle and they told me if i sent it to them and had them machine it that they'd still warranty my frame...but I called them 2 years ago and they told me i better not touch that frame and keep it all original.
Today I'm gonna strip the frame and try to find some Gunmetal Grey (the color it was in 1994), i'll have it powdercoated and not painted (which back then it was painted).
keep any eye on this thread guys
