  1. Today
  2. I really need to focus. I suck at keeping my word. I was reading through just the last page of this thread and it has taken 3 F'ing years to get this far. Damn! So sticking with some Bob Osborn stories and photos.... this is from a photo shoot at Yarnell for the side hack interview in the second issue of BMXA. This falls into the "I wish I could see all the photos Bob took that were not good enough for the magazine". He went through rolls of film at every shoot. This particular jump was one of those "Dennis, could you do that one more time?" We must have pushed the hack up the hill and hit this jump at least a dozen times. He told me what he was attempting to capture. A normal panning shot, like the one Windy took of us at Corona's first turn, where the photographer follows the subject going by and captures a crisp image with a blurred background giving the concept of speed. Bob told me he was trying to do the same thing with us coming directly at him. He said he had to zoom, focus and shoot at the same time. He told me later he was not able to achieve the affect he wanted but I would love to see what his version of 'not good enough' was. I can only imagine....
  3. Yesterday
  4. Definitely would like to see any of his history.
  5. I am sitting with Emo now eating dinner. He says he wishes he was at 412 McClay like the old days. He is looking for Friday, John George, and anyone else who used to be on his team! All of the team actually! He says he misses you all! He asked that if you wanna get in touch, to respond to me here.

  10. Last week
  11. I’m after a set of those bar mounts. Any chance to buy a pair?
  12. I think everything is working now with the database. Try it out.
  13. Well other then the pedals she is together for now and let me tell ya she is a heavyweight! Now a few questions for the cats that know (because I don’t) the rear swing arm looks home madeish with some sloop worlds and the frame has been sprayed a few times as I see silver and blue under red. The triple tree looks homemade as well but again I don’t know. The crank arms are stamped 75 and what is this tension thing for the chain ? Has any else seen one or have one? The guy shipped all the dust and dirt with the bike when packed like a picnic lunch lol. Here are more and better pics of the monster. Oh the grips are both the same side haha
  14. Thanks, I hear that stuff is real good. The grips have no markings on them. I was hunting them on visual alone based on catalog pictures. Then these popped up for sale as 1993 gt interceptor grips. They were a perfect match to the picture in the catalog. I still haven’t seen another pair for sale, and it’s been a couple of years.
  15. what brand are the grips? here's a good chrome polish.
