Late 50s/Early 60s Ross Super Deluxe Craigslist find. I got it because I could not get over that fender ornament. I seen the photo of that one part in the ad and said "That IS going in my collection...". Overall shape of the bike is pretty good. Mostly original, or so it seems. Only things that don't fit some photos I seen floating around the net are the grips, seat, and pedals. But they flow so well with the bike as a whole, I'm leaving them be. :) Headlights didn't work when I got the bike. Found out later the ground was bad, so I had to rewire the whole system. Works great now. The original bulbs still work.

Its my first 26" tanker. I LOVE it. Its not done yet, but it isn't far either.

Hey Ricky thats a pretty rad cruiser!!

Thanks :).

After seeing the other S.D. up there with the same seat and grips as mine, makes me rethink the "original to the bike" status of those parts. Would be great if they were stock to the bike.

My first real bike 1984 or 1985 Ross Pirahna. It has been at my parents house outside for years. I brought it to my place and cleaned it up, had to replace the wheels. It will be my sons bike when he is old enough, he rides a 16" wheel now.


Kinda small for me now, lol.





1963 Ross

Those may be the original pedals. They are just like the ones on my old Ross, although mine were worn out.
I think your whole bike is original.

Verrrrry little slow progress on the same Ross i posted before , made a custom seat and wheels set with the original front rim , (edit) now with a DIY sprigner fork made with the original fork ;) ...it will most likely end up metalic green just like the original paint , maybe i little darker

1958 CBC [Chain Bicycle Co.] ThunderJet Star Flyte 5 star Deluxe Pre ROSS bicycle. [Gosh thats a mouth full...]

I got this one for a little more than I wanted to pay, but the delta ended up working after some tinkering and it was a pretty smooth ride. Sold it to a local a couple months back for a few dollars more than I payed. Was glad it went to someone who appreciated my slight alterations. [Functionless/Mock tank.]

My first bike was a 66' Ross Barracuda. Last year I picked up this C2C Duster, exactly like an Apollo... Gonna build it in the upcoming MBBO#4

The only thing original here is the frame, but I have found a correct fork...
