Hi, just want to see how many people own a spooky. I can proudly say I own two, a Pitboss and Metalhead, love them both equally so i won't offend either one:D I'll post some pics soon of mine when i get my camera back. Really would like to see some nice Darksides and Junebugs, i think my next bike will be a Darkside, but can't find any of them anywhere. Enough of my rambling, post your spooky bike pics!!

Check this one out, can't tell exactly what size, looks big. I emailed him about it, thinking i could get the frame cheap, but he still wants $800. I really wasnt digging the white frame either.

Does anyone know if the Darkside frames were made in a smaller size? Anyone know some more history on these frames, or what colors they were painted?

Lets see some more pictures we can drool over!!:D :D :D

I had the pleasure of going up to the Danburry CT factory and buying mine, meeting the guys and even Frank the welder.

The frames are made out of Eastom Custom Elite tubing, made by Frank the Welder. The stickers wear out like you can't imagine. they ride great though.

I know, that's real steep. I got my never ridden, completly mint pitboss frame for $500 when i called from our shop to another. Which was a pretty good deal. Anyone know what the sizes ran on the Darkside frames? Maybe they are all that big because i've honestly never seen a medium-ish or small one. I could get some pics of my two bikes, but the metalhead doesn't have the front wheel one as i sent it back for Chris King warranty service, so ill take some pictures when i get the wheel back this week. The weather is pretty crappy here, so the pics will probablly be in my cramped garage.

Keep the pics coming!!!

Check out the custom emrbroidered hat i had made. it really came out nice. My friend makes custom print shirts and hats and stuff, so i had him make me some cool shirts and the sweet hat. It's funny when people read it and you hear them say "What's faster than your mom??". Good stuff, keep posting pics!!!:cool: :cool:

Just found this cool pic of a bandwagon frame. Anyone know what the difference is between the bandwagon and a metalhead frame? That sure looks the close to the same as my metalhead frame. And to make it more confusing, which one was the junebug frame??

iirc they were both cheaper versions of the other frames.
junebug = cheaper darkside , bandwagon = cheaper metalhead , the pitboss was an overbuilt darkside(for clydesdales).

baby blue pit boss

gimme two days and I will post pics of my baby blue Pit Boss.

I had one new back in 2000, sold it (for some stupid reason), regretted selling it for 6 years, then found another one exactly the same on ebay and bought it on the spot. my lovely spooky is back.

my friend has an older white Project-X frame, but it was never built up. I think we have it among friends up in Seattle being built up as a sidecar racer.

pics to come...
