White Profile X-File BMX Chromoly Old Mid-school Racing Bicycle Bike Frame. Appears to be almost brand new.Very light washer marks on the rear dropouts. Looks like somebody just test fit a wheel. Light marks on the seat post area from a seat post clamp that looks like it was test fitted. Not 100% sure if it is original paint or a white powder coat. Either way the paint looks phenomenal. The stickers do look older and aged though. Miniscule cosmetic blemishes here and there.
Most rub right off with your thumb. The marks by the head tube as shown might need a little more manipulation to get off. It's very hard to even get a picture of it.But it is here and there on the frame. This thing is absolutely beautiful in person. You won't be disappointed. Top tube is 20 1/4 center to center. Be sure to check all pictures for any further visual details. I do have some original stickers that I got directly from profile that I'll throw in with it also if I remember. The next paragraphs are all everything I copy and pasted from profiles website.
This listing is strictly only for a white frame. Nothing else is included at all.All the rest is just for informative purposes for a little history lesson. Profile Racing's Legacy: Week 27, 1995. 1995 was the beginning of the uptick in the bmx industry as a whole. Feeling the bounce back, Profile Racing, after retiring from frame production in 1987/1988, decided to make a come back.
Taking some of the Aesthetics of the Iconic, Champ Pro Frame (by using the signature "cross" downtube/toptube bar) and adding Italian, Columbus brand, road style seat and chain-stay tubing, the Profile Racing X-File Frame was created. X-Files were available in 3 sizes and in 4 colors. Named after Corey Alley's favorite TV show at the time, Jim put our crank welders back to work making three variations of this frame from 1995 to 1999. The X-File was available in Pro, Pro-XL and Cruiser styles.
Italian, Columbus tubing was featured on the X-File Seat and Chain Stays as well as the X-File fork legs. An OG "Gen-1" Stem in 65mm. In that year, the Profile "Gen-1" stems were born.Available in Polished (and later, black), in two sizes: 55 and 65mm. 1995 was also the last year (for awhile) that Profile Racing outsourced its production.
After manufacturing US made cranks for GT, Powerlite, and Boss, Haro reached out and asked that we manufacture a small run of cranks for their subsidiary brand: Fusion. Of a few sets we have left: Aftermarket Fusion Cranks were available in 175 and 180mm in chrome only. Based off the tubular design of the after-market Powerlite cranks that we produced, Fusion cranks were available in 175 and 180mm with a Screen Printed logo which, Jim recently stated, was a really expensive, locally outsourced process. The Fusion Cranks took a proprietary 36 splined spindle. Setting them apart from all of our other after-market cranks, the Fusion Cranks offered a 36 Splined Spindle (as opposed to the Classic, Profile 48 Splined design).The item "White Profile X-File BMX Chromoly Old Mid-school Racing Bicycle Bike Frame" is in sale since Tuesday, September 21, 2021.
