Topics I've Started
Posted 22 Mar 2013I thought this was a pretty rad shot from our ABA BMX archives. It was posted on the BMX Hall of Fame FB page, but I know a lot of you don't go to FB or maybe aren't on the BMX HOF FB page. This shot was of Commander Cody Smart from a Bicycles and Dirt photo shoot. Our intern has been very busy archiving all of our photo from over the years. It will easily be over 500,000 photos and slides when we are all finished. We pretty much have every single event we've held documented and we have tons of video and film as well. If you would like to check out what we have archived so far check the link below!
In the mean time, enjoy this berm buster!!
Posted 2 Feb 2013So I have these bar that came off a 1988 Free Agent Cruiser. The guy siad they are Free Agent Cruiser bars, the faded Free Agent sticker on the bars matches the faded Free Agent sticker on the frame. I just want to make sure they are Free Agent bars. They are 29 inches wide and uncut. The have a nice sweep/bend to them. They are 5.75 inches tall from the top of the crossbar to the bottum on the knurling. Any info would be great. Thanks!
Posted 31 Jan 2013My good buddy gOrk brought this one in the USA BMX office today. It's a -77- Haro signed original. The cool thing about this one is when you flip the drawing over, it was drawn on the back of a '76 NBA GRands poster! Very cool piece. Can you name all the riders in the pic??
