Topics I've Started
Posted 2 May 2008Hello,
Just wanted to share with everyone that I'm doing very well now. The daily, weekly doctor visits are now 3 and 6 months apart. I have gone through a hell of a ride and wish it on nobody. I will no longer let my personal health take a back seat to everything else….. it will be a priority. Another note on this then I will get off my soap box...... for any of you out there if a doctor tells you “you have to do or take something” and it makes you feel bad/ sick, ask questions and seek a second opinion.....PLEASE!!! Do it for yourself and your family.
Now for the real important stuff, I have missed you guys so much!! I am back to full tilt in the shop and have been doing my best to play catch up. Thank you for all you that stuck by me you are the best!! And to those that feel I let them down I truly apologize with all my heart.
I know it's hell when you want your stuff done and you want it for a show. I am right now trying to put in place a few things here in the shop (tools and machines) that will help me expedite your projects. I know I'm not the only guy doing the repairs and not the fastest but I will always promise you top quality and will stand behind my work 110%
Again thank you all.... lots of love to my BMX family!!!
Posted 28 Jan 2008First off I want to thank you all for your well wishes and total understanding while I have been going through a very tough time with my health. I will not go into great detail right now but I will tell you I'm on my way back to a full and total recovery!
I have been ill in my life but never down like I have been the past 5 months. Some it may have been my fault but the rest of my problems rested with my doctor. I will, as most of you should, get a second opinion from now on. Wrong, med's + no treatment for the REAL problem = a mess of my health and a lot of loss of $$$$$$$
Now for the better news, I did go out in the shop the past 2 weeks trying to get cranked up on repairs. I'm not real quick right now but I feel that will improve with time. Some will say I never been quick, but the truth is I have been going through this illness for a long time it just took this long to totally shut me down.
I ask that everybody does not flood me with "is my frame done yet" emails. I promise I will get them out and in the quality you will be proud of.
Again thank you all for your well wishes and support!!
Posted 4 Sep 2007Hey guys,
I have been doing my best to communicate with everyone but there are a few that I need to get back to on your projects, I will you have my word. I want to thank you all for your support and in being good friends through the good and tough times.
A few of you know but I wanted to communicate to the rest of my extended BMX family here. I have been very ill for the past 3 to 4 weeks. Some of you may have noticed at Rockford my legs were red, swelled and looked rough. Well they were getting better till a few weeks ago and then blew up like balloons and were VERY red and VERY hot. They felt like they were on fire on the inside! After a few blood tests and many other tests they still have no idea what’s going on.
The doctor has made me keep off my feet for the last couple of weeks and take it easy. They gave me something to get rid of the redness, which was an infection, and much of the swelling is down also due to them giving me some lasic (pills that make you P...lol.
My feet still have some swelling so it has been tough to do much work here in the shop. As for what is complete I will start boxing up tonight and ship out tomorrow. Some of my repair work can be done sitting but it is slow going that way.
Although slow I am feeling much better now. I will keep pushing forward on everybody’s projects so please bare with me for the next week or so. Again thank you all for your understand and support.
Posted 5 Aug 2006I finally have a 26" cruiser after 30 years in BMX. I need to know a bit about Prodyne. Very JMC in all the details right down to the top of the seat tube mast.

Pretty cool old ride, I am changing it back to as raced status. This bike can be seen in action in the jock's jag DVD Indy worlds 1981 rider Richard (Rick) Moore. Rick was one of my sponsors back in the day, he hooked me up with Kuwahara and my racing took off from there. Great guy and a great racer of motorcycles, flat track and road race and in his later years some BMX.
