FOXBAT FREESTYLER INFO??
« on: July 15, 2018, 12:37 PM »
Does anyone have any info regarding the Foxbat Freestyler?? A mate had one as a kid....I think it may have been a catalogue complete. Was it made by MT Racing? the decals kinda look the same as the MT Fox range...and the headtube decals look the same as the Fox4 styler?
I have also seen others with the Tensor name associated with them...I was just wondering what the deal was? I kinda like the look of the frameset....Aero tubing...all Chromo....welds don't look bad although never seen one up close.....Anyone know what they ride like? apart from the Aero tubing ( Tange) just looks like a fairly generic Haro ~gen 1 copy to me..... :-\

I've always fancied a Foxbat from whaen I saw the advert as a kid:



A lot of people thought they were MT but from the advert they are Tensor. I saw a frame & forks at MK a couple of years ago and it was really light. No idea what they ride like though. I think Jono built one at one point.

Foxbat Aero's were made by Tensor Not MT racing or Fox Factor.

Someone asked Del do of some fox factor style decals for a foxbat aero a few years back as the decals on the Tensor Foxbat Aero were garbage & ever since then everyone has copied the idea as they look good but are totally incorrect for the frame ...

Similar to the Falcon prostlyter delcals that look like Vector Decals & the Aero reflex delcals that everyone uses .

(Same scenario), Del made some Vector style decals for them for one guy & everyone likes them & bought them instead of the originals .

Ive built one they feel really short , i'm only 5'9-5'10 & i couldn't ride it comfortably although i loved the look for the bike when it was finished.

It's the only bloody bike i don't have a picture of as i lost my Goddammmmmm  >:( phone ...

It was a classic Chrome & Black combo, DC seat clamp

 black:  tuffs / comp 3's  /suntour stem  /kashimax  / lp440  mx 1000's & tech 3's  / Shimano DX / Ame rounds / Sugino 44t

Chrome / Tuf neck power disc / Tioga Task force crank  / & I'd  put some Chrome CW pro bars on it as the frame was so small the bars needed to be big...   Gutted i dont even  have 1 image ....
