Does anybody know the make of this frame? I can find no markings. The bike has some nice components on it. I was thinking of parting it out unless the frame has some value. Photo

That's not supposed to have gears, and the rear mech has been bodged on.

The components look original to me. The rims, front brake and brake cables are all the same color.

They could've been changed at any time. Those mechs aren't supposed to be fitted like that, it's at completely the wrong angle

I'm looking for identification of the frame. If any one knows.

Back in the 90s I bought a second hand Boss Racing frame which I believe was from the late 80s/early 90s. It was a good quality frame for the time. Aspects of this bike here remind me of it, not saying it's definitely a Boss though...?

Have a browse here and see if you turn anything up. Your bike's got a reasonably distinctive rear section just behind the bottom bracket, so if it is a Boss, it shouldn't be too hard to narrow down.

It is very similar to the Boss and Panda 26" frames. I did not see an exact match . Photo

I found out it is a Mongoose Kos Kruiser .

Confirm by sending the serial number to Mongoose via email and ask them. They will be able to let you know for sure.

funny cause the rear end, and the brace that is holding the chainstay to the BB looks like mid/late 80's era Mongoose, but I couldn't tell if it was a knock-off or not...

Someone clued me in. Looks like 1981 from the serial numbers.
