I'll paste what I have read on these so far: "There were actually 3 frames available from Thruster when they first started out. The Tim Judge (std length w/ large bb), the Ferdie Garcia (std length, small bb) and the jamie Burroughs (long frame w/ large bb). I believe the Jamie Burroughs, was re-named "Vanishing Point" when Jamie left the team. Later Thrusters were "Tri Power" (same as Vanishing Point but no gusset but a 3 tube front tri angle), "Thruster 2" (considered an expert sized frame), and a Tri Power 24". Speed Unlimited is a Speed Shop located in N.J., they used to build Rocket Cars and Dragsters, as well as BMX."

I also have a Thruster frame, mine is a Tri power XL, in chrome. Actually in very good shape, I have had this since '86. I too would like some information as to how much these are worht, and how common they are. Mine is the only one that I've seen. Has the 3 bars up the middle, and the welds and chrome are top quality.

I know this is a shot in the dark but I am trying to run down some Thruster forks for an old Tri-Power I am tring to restore. If you still have those Thrusters I would be interested in purchasing.

Thanks Derek
