Throwback Thursday

Innocence. No jumps. No tricks. No racing. Just that first feeling of “damn, these bikes are cool.” I was about 14 in this photo and this was an upgrade from my motomag goose of the year prior.

This was state of art trickness in 1979-80. Before there is a drive to get better at what you do, there is that spark of “wow, this looks really neat”. This photo is that feeling.

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.
