ECM Bulldozer. 1991

This frame was custom-made for me by ECM (Erik’s Cykel Mekano) in 1991. It was designed by me with some help from Erik. The geometry is the same as the S&M Holmes frame. The front triangle is made of beefy aluminum tubings. The bolt-on rear triangle comes from an Auburn, and it´s made of aluminum. The frame got alot of attention at international races and dirt-contests.

The bike was sold in mid 90´s to Ellus in Källvesta (with other parts compared from what I had). Just some days after he bought it, the bike got stolen when we did some street-riding in downtown Stockholm. Many years later, I got the frame back from Patrik “Döskallen” who had found it.

I have tried to build it up the way I had it back in the days. The decals for the frame is made entirely by hand (exactly like the original decals). The fork and cranks is bought from “Karlsson” (he was one of my old riding buddies. Ex member of “Dirt-busters” and TL-design team).

Some of the parts are my old ones that I’ve saved in my dad’s basement. My old parts have been refurbished and is marked by *** at the list below.

Special thanks goes out to Patrik “Döskallen” Eklund for finding the frame, Timo “2-Fresh” for trading the rare handlebar to me, and to Erik Nordin who made the frame for me!

    Sjukt kul att se Bulldozern igen! Hörde att du varit förbi päronen i älvsjö och köpt en del gamla Bmx prylar! Ska se om det finns något kvar jag kan skänka till dig! Mvh Dirt Buster Carlson

  • De två sista bilderna från Todd och Pistol Pete´s besök kommer jag väl ihåg. Jag, Bjarne och hans chafför Stefan bodde hemma hos Stefan Spjut och vi hookade upp med dig och Robban vid Märsta banan och dagen efter var det Älvsjö. Har ett kort hemma där jag sitter på Todd´s axlar när han cyklar när vi hade en liten session efter tävlingen i Märsta Ha ha!
