Yep, the machined BB is the give away as a genuine Pro-class, along with being lighter. I did the same experiments about 10yrs ago with a selection of Pros and Supers and I also noticed that the rear drop-outs on a Pro are thinner than the Supergoose :daumenhoch:

Wish I'd kept my favourite Pro-Class but had a massive speeding fine to pay when I was skint one day, so away it went :'(

hi mate, yes you are  correct about the rear drop outs being thinner, I thought I was seeing things, my proclass is a lot lighter than the goose, and the forks is different too. when I got  it it still had some og colour on it as wasn't stripped right i think. so I sent to mark ralph to  restore it and get the correct colour on, he has done such a great job marks the best. I love the proclass so much as its turned out so good, the supergoose is awesome too. I researched this till I was blue in the face , even the last owner told me it was proclass, and I didn't see the difference first time till I got both bikes apart, now im so chuffed I have both , will never part with them they are to good. cheers brian

This is very interesting and helpful as I have never owned a Pro Class only Supergoose  :daumenhoch:

A Pro class is the better bike but do you think the Supergoose would be stronger as thicker tubing?

Not sure as they were both designed for racing and both had decent welding. Logic says the thicker material would be tougher but I never heard about Pro-Class frames being snapped BITD or even now as restoration projects, so I think they just got the weight down to the minimum safely and got it right IMO

Must say if I admit to regretting selling any bike it would be my '83 Pro-Class and my '78 Team geese........ :uglystupid2:

Would love either of them bikes. Pure class and quality. I got a chance to sit on Andy ruffles pro class back in 83 when he was touring here in n.ireland , but apart from that I have never actually seen another up close.

hi mate,  love both bikes the supergoose is awesome its og chrome its so clean its unreal all welds is great no issues atall , the proclass so far has to be one of my best bikes yet.i must say tho my hutch prostar is lighter than the proclass it the lightest bike ive ever owned.i also am lucky  enough to own to mk1 proburner that is very special indeed. I will never part with the supergoose or the proclass as they are very rare more so when in very good condition. cheers brian
