There's a JT Parts Guide in the stickies that might help.

Based on your vague post it seemed like you hadn't read the JT Parts Guide thread. Read it again. I've bold & italicized the info you seek. Post pics of your frames for more info.

EPS Bottoms/Frames:

Supposedly LE just like the HB parts, but JT seems to have produced quite a bit more EPS bottoms/frames than HB, making them worth roughly half value. There are 5 colors altogether. Although it may seem as if JT repeated the HB colors, but there is a noticeable difference.

Green - More of a Pea Green, compared to the Lime Green of HB.
White - Pearly White compared to the Pastel White of HB.
Pink - More of a Pearl color compared to the Neon Pink of HB.
Teal - No HB comparison
Purple - No HB comparison

Yes. The Flex8 and Revolution came with white frames. They're the same pure white as the 'HB' white parts.

With the release of a ton of spare/leftover parts from the white Revolution Flex after KEE acquired JT a couple yrs back HB white has become more of a description of the color and not necessarily parts from HB '06.

It is kind of hard to tell by those pics, but it looks to be HB. The EPS are a pearl color, which means they have distinctive swirls that you can see in the frames. The HB are just plain white. If your frame has NO SWIRLS in it, then it is HB.

This is the best pic i could find on the intrawebs. This is not my picture, so i hope i don't get in trouble for posting, but here you go.

hmm, for some reason I think you guys are missing the point D-Man was trying to make .. I'm just going out on a limb here and say those are stock white flex 8's. I think common sense needs to come into play a bit - would someone actually replace the stock white frames on a flex 8 or a revo with a white HB frame? and if they did, you'd have a hard time telling the difference. jus sayin

^^^This.

The picture above is a clean White Flex8.

HB White = actual parts bought at HB '06, the rest of those 500 pieces sold elsewhere after the event, white Flex8, and White Revo. They're all the same pure white.


EPS = pearl white.


/my discussion on this.

So HB has come to mean just the color? And these are not part of the first 500, but instead a stock version of the same color.
