April 1981 advertisement

February 3, 2010

Like many adds it appeared over different months. This is from an April 81 advertisement in Super BMX.

-So it is now clear even after the Black Shadow came in Chrome it was still known as the Black Shadow.

-It also points out the weight limit of the 3.1 XL is 110 lbs. It also clear that the 3.1 XL is the same geometry as the Short Standard but with lighter tubing.

-Finally it also clear that the Black Shadow had a much steeper head tube angle then the Long Standard.
