To quote the company itself, Bone Deth specialises in ‘creepo slime babes, depraved sexplotation flicks, BMX films and BMX bikes’. The brainchild of infamous street daredevil Sean Burns and a group of his closest (and maddest) East Coast friends, the company is into wild designs and imagery on an eclectic range of frames, parts and clothing.
It has a great line-up of team riders, including Burns himself, plus Colt Fake, Albie Bennett, Lee Hopkins, Kert Petersel, Chris Crawford, Jay Wilson, Dirt Ron, Waffle, Joci Budai, Dean Dickinson, Arnaud Malthieu and Bungay. Many starred in the frankly nuts ‘Rotten’ video, which also featured full sections from Tom Molyneux, Eric Holladay, Team Shralp, Shajn Raines, Pat Quinn and Erick Carment.
The Sean Burns signature frame is the ‘Motorbone’, made from 4130 Sanko chromoly with double-butted down tube, and with a 74.5 degree heat-treated, CNC-machined head tube drilled for gyro tabs, as well as low profile, removable brake mounts. The ‘Motorbone’ comes in two colours, ‘matte dead black’ or ‘transexual Goldy Hawn’. Also available is the Bone Deth team frame, the ‘BSTRD’, designed to take some serious riding abuse.
The Bone Deth range of parts encompasses two handlebars, – the Burns signature ‘Deadman’ and the ‘Bomber’ – plus stems, cranks, grips, seats and posts, sprockets, hubs, rims and pegs. There is also a fork called the ‘Bottom Feeder’, strong enough for all of the Bone Deth crew with 4130 Sanko chromoly fluted, butted and tapered tubing, and given 100% heat treatment after welding.
