Throwback Thursday

It all started here. In 1979 my Dad found Pete’s Bike Shop in Flemington, NJ and the BMX track there. We went there, traded my Raleigh Grifter in for a Mongoose Motomag and a lifelong obsession with BMX began

This photo right here is of my first real BMX bike the way it was the day I brought it home. Mongoose motomag with gold stem, one piece cranks, alloy seat post and alloy bars, grab on grips and Comp II tires. I was in love and my life would never be the same.

For more BMX and brittle crazines pick up my book, “The Average BMXer” available on Kindle, and on Lulu.com in e-pub and Hardcover form.
