bmxbert's right, I had a Screamer and I'm sure the dropouts were the same.
Very nice frame, neat welds and strong as you like, worth £40 in new condition.

I remember those heavy tools which were similar to the Shorty(didn't they have a bend in the seatstay?) but I also have a faint memory of a shop selling standard copy frames in the old Ride mags, maybe try finding some 95ish mags and check the shop ads? I reckon they were sold as "shorty copy" frames...someone have a flick through yer old mid 90s Ride mags and check!

cheers all.  Anyone ever ride a shorty?  I had one for a month or so - bought it off a mate to sell on, but I thought I'd see what they were like to ride.  They were really short, 360s were far too easy on them ;D .  Nice to ride, but eye, well short.

the cyclesport sold shorty copies  caused problems in the late 90s as they got stickered up as shortys tut tut
dragonfly also did a similar variation even with the pierced top tube .very similar  the one in the links cyclesport copy.
i think the head stocks the wrong size for most head sets 1" ...jap 1"  strange old size.

Thought I had a clip of me riding the shorty -

scroll down + press play - you might have already seen this in the Ayton thread.  Its like about the 5th rider - cancan, table, 360 then a nofooted manual to some kind of daft no handed ride off, haha  :P (who said riders had no style in the 90s)  Some clips of Ayton on it - mid school action and bikes.  I'm also on my chrome sta + dirt bike - filmed over 4 years or so I think.

Hi,

If you're still interested in this frame, give bmxcity a call, they're the ones selling it. Its always the same guy that answers the phone, he's a good guy, very helpful!

just some info on these i bought one other week from bmx city and they sent the wrong frame

which turned out to be a heavy tools ruler :O   and a full stickerset was sent to me after as an apology, i kept it anyway and they sent me the "shorty "one for a cheaper price to compensate!

anyway   once that arrived i compared it to my genuine standard shorty copy and there are a few differances which made me think this has to be a "heavy tools screamer!

looked at the serial number underneath and first two letters just to left of the number are a   H AND T       so that 99% me its a screamer!

they have a couple left if anyone still wants one and a ruler too with full decal set ready to stick on    :D

Heavy tools weren't the only company to copy standards. The xposure ox was based on the lengthy. And I don't think the dmr trigger was too far away either.

Testament to how good standards are!

i have 3 of these frames from bmx city/cycle sport and they all have codes beneath the Bottom bracket saying     HT 01  , HT 02  or  HT 03    followed by a serial number

too much of a coincidence NOT to be heavy tools surely???

Sorry to resurrect an ancient thread, but I was doing some Heavy Tools Ruler research........thought I'd chip in with my HT Ruler having "HT - B01" on the bottom bracket.

I have various platform frames from various manufacturers that all have a massive nod towards Standards of the time.

They are all for sale if anyone's interested. 

For anyone who doesn't know my story, my collection went through the fire at Rom a couple of years ago so these pieces do now have some interesting patina...
