When I ordered the original set of Sugar Cayne Anniversary frames, I also orders some in Raw. The original plan was to collaborate with some artist and illustrators to make custom designs on the raw frames. Then Covd-19 happened, everything shut down, social distancing and that was that. So I decided to customize the frame designs myself.
When I first thought about doing these custom frames I wanted to make them all unique in their own way. So I started playing around with ideas. I really wanted to make a decal design that’s different than the usual ones you see on BMX frames. The decals are die cut and transferred onto the frame. This process isn’t so easy because if I messed up at any point, I would’ve had to start all over again. And I did….a few time lol.
I wanted a raw industrial look with an elegant contrast. I found this cool red sparkle decal tape and I thought that would be a nice match up. I used the same lettering as on the teal frame but used a pin stripe on the top tube, two “Just Rides” on the seat stays and “Bespoke Series” on the chain stays. I’ll be making a series of these Bespoke designs. This is also a One Of One frame decal design. It’s been a lot of fun doing these custom frames and I’m looking forward to doing many more.
THE SERIAL NUMBER:
My original plan for the serial numbers were to have them go from 1-11 for the painted 20″ and 12-22 for the 24″ then 25-32″ for the raw frames but it didn’t happen that way lol. so the serial numbers are mixed between the raw and painted frames. This frame is SER# SCA004. The SCA stands for Sugar Cayne Anniversary. I made these frames to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of CAC-TV/SugarCayne.com. Yeah I wanted to do something more than just a t-shirt 🙂
Here’s the Prototype frame in action at the trails
The bike can also handle some park action!
