Was thinking about buying a frame off Craigslist...its supposed to be the aitken s3.5, but when i asked if it had the trans am bird etching on the headtube he said it just has the fit logo.

So my question is, is it an s3.5 because from what i know they all had the bird etching and ive been looking on bmx museum to make sure and i tried to see if maybe it was an older model but they didn't have an integrated seat clamp and the s4 doesnt have the fit logo on the ht either...so i dont know maybe i missed something


Here a pic he sent me it probably wont help much but I'll ask him for more

Sunday beat me to it. Looks like the same seatpost clamp as well as the standover height. I too think it is a lurch.

Haha laughing

but yeah, and the back end looks really long just like the lurch has. Good frame from what I understand, idk why the seller lied and said it's an S3.5, or maybe he just forgot or got it off someone who didn't know either, or it was stolen. whatever haha I'd say go for it if the price is right
