Bought this last week from a kid, His brother was big into bmx and gave him this frame to build a bike but he didn't end up doing it, He said it's a cult frame but i have no idea what model. Just threw some old parts i had for now.

Thanks in advance

If it's a cult it will have some cult logo's embossed somewhere, and they usually have the model name stamped into the bottom of the bb shell. The rear end looks like a cult, but no headtube gussets?

I know that's why i'm confused at what frame it is, Must be a older one if it is a cult. Rear end looks exactly like cult but not seen a cult frame on google without headtube gussets

Just took some new pictures, Just took off the paint on the bb with a wire attachment and the number on the bb is screwed up, not sure if it's from being ridden hard or someone has removed it.

I know fbm and solid made the first batch of cult frames. Google image search those and see if they match? Although I think the fbm ones had the serial number stamped into a plate and brazed inside the bb shell. And the solid ones may have not had a frame number at all

Took the crank bearings out today and they are spanish bb if that helps narrow it down

If they're Spanish then it's definitely not a Cult, they've always used Mid

What was the original colour? The brake mounts look like fly

white is the original colour, i've ruled out cult now, sunday frames look similar aswell.

I dont think Sunday made a frame with Spanish bearings either. Damn I've never been so stumped on a frame before. Its completely unremarkable in terms of features or identifiers.

Definitely not a Sunday either, they never used Spanish.

Steve may be right, I was thinking it was a Fly as well. They use Spanish and it kinda looks like a Fly just looking at it. I'll do a little research and see what I can find.

hmmm had a look at fly tierra's and they don't look exactly the same, frame supports at the rear are different

Hope people don't mind me hijacking this thread just didn't see the point making a whole new one. I've just won a bike on eBay for cheap but have no clue what it is other than the obvious. Any ideas? Photo

Hopefully you didn't buy a stolen frame. Looks like they grind off serial# from BB, then repainted.
