Been wanting to get another BMX after like 7 years of not riding. I'm 29 so I'm old but still got some riding left in me.

The bike is an 08 Fit Chase Hawk
LHD (I am going to switch it back to RHD)
21 inch top tube
Colony Forks
WTP royal cranks
S&M Grand Slam Bars
Cult grips
Colony Headset
Premium Stem
Demolition Front Hub
Cinema vx Rear Hub 9t Driver
Odyssey Hazard Lite Rear Rim
Flybike 2.15" Tires
Eclat 25t Sprocket
Macneil Seatpost
Redline Seat
KMC Chain
Odyssey Pegs
Odyssey Plastic Pedals

I didn't like the fact that it was LHD but I got this thing for really cheap so it's not a huge deal.
I went to test it out yesterday and boy it was weird getting back on one. However I felt more comfortable after a little while.

I will probably upgrade a few of the parts and do something with the frame. Either powder coat or raw it and do a clear powder coat.

I love it though. It's super solid and at the price I got it I would have spent 3x as much building my own.

Haha thanks.

And I don't feel old but I just meant compared to the average age of a bmx'er. 27 is definitely a good age. I wish I would have never stopped but oh well.

I'm going to go out again a little later today and see if I can get back 180s and 3s

Should take the Animal Sticker off and paint the fork black.

I paid $280 for it.

And I am going to strip the bike down to the frame and media blast it. Then have it powder coated clear.
As far as the fork goes. I'm not in to super bright colors so I'll probably go black with that.

Nice bike dude always cool seeing frames they don't make anymore still popping up


12/14/2014 4:08 AM

DUDE NO! Don't blast that frame! That blue is way too awesome!

If you really want to get rid of the colour of the frame, at least use paint stripper on it to not get rid of the weld marks.

Noooo isn' t that the original colour aswell?


Follow on instagram will follow back.

That blue is raw! I'd say blast the orange off the forks and try to chrome them so you have chrome forks with that sick blue!
