    First new project from me since 2010! This project came about during a random conversation with Dan Goins back in early July of this year. He sent me pictures of this frame and a different Redline fork. It looked fantastic and I was immediately interested. We came to an agreement and the search for cool-looking parts was on.... I really like the way everything turned out. I saw the morning fog yesterday, and I sprung into action....there are NOT many good photo opportunities in Michigan in late November. I hope everyone gets a kick out of it. Nearly 10 years in the making.... FRAME: Dan Gurney Eagle looptail with Cook Brothers gussets FORK: Redline nickel HEADSET: Schwinn STEM: Schwinn HANDLEBARS: Dan Gurney GRIPS: O.G.K. PLATE: old motorcross SEAT CLAMP: 70's SR road stem cut off SEAT POST: solid aluminum SEAT: Selle Italia Grand-Prix CRANKS & BB: Schwinn PEDALS: KKT SPROCKET: Three Arrows CHAIN: Union FRONT HUB: ACS REAR HUB: Bendix Red Band turned down RIMS: Weinmann 2.125 TIRES: Cheng Shin PADS: Vinyl snap

    1977 RA -7 All original except the front tire. Kinda like the Rodney Dangerfield bike. Doesn't get much attention at shows. Only people who know admire it.

    So, the seat post clamp is a very nice piece that I received from Rick G many years ago. Actually, I am reusing it! It made an appearance on a DG Skibel I had back in ‘08 or ‘09...

He said the guy gave him 3 sets of mage for the labor 2 sets of lesters and this set of painted Webco mags spay bombed yellow lol well we worked out a deal on the bits and mags and man I have always wanted a set and with a bit of work I will make this set great again. Thinking satin black to got on my replica(silver and black) hell may even toss the 44t stamped chain ring and head set on it wile I’m at it. now as far as cleaning the pain off I am going to try stripper 1st and go from there. don’t mind the dog hair on the rug lol

    Starting a new thread here because this was buried in another thread with an ambiguous title years ago.. it needs to be easy to access. Thanks to Jeff Haney for reminding me this was buried on the site. RRS always had a cutting edge orientation... concentric bottom bracket, canti brakes, 24 inch cruisers etc etc This was there dalliance with wheel size configurations

    Bill Bastian/ Race Inc. made the alloy frames and Jere Kirkpatrick or one of his employees at Fabrications by Jere in Venice CA made the steel frame.

    I used Bendix red band hubs on most all my race bikes and had no clue they were that thick. Although I was never all that concerned about weight or 'trickness' back then. I just wanted sturdy components. LOL I also do not ever recall that seat post clamp set up. Brilliant!!!!! I'm lovin the time period rust on the seat guts too, very authentic. ;-)

    I never collected at the level most people posting in this thread do/did. But I did collect. I stopped collecting or even hunting vintage bmx a few years back. I still love it. Still love to see other people's bikes. Still love it when a classic rolls into the shop. But I just don't have the interest in chasing stuff any more. I never got burned out by the hobby, although the newer crop of collectors didn't help keep me interested. I really like retro bmx cruisers, I've got 4 and my wife has one too. I don't have the little voice in my head saying "don't fuck this bike up" when I ride it. Also, the proportions make me feel like I'm an 11 year old again on a 20". That's what I'm after. The feeling. Everything else is trinkets and trivia. I got way too caught up in that. It's actually a bit of a relief to have forgotten the exact specs of each bike in the 1987 GT freestyle catalog. I've moved on, at least as a collector. Still 100% enthusiast though. As for switching hobbies... I have a bit of a guitar problem. Vintage bmx is a cheaper hobby, maybe I should try to switch back.

    I think it’s totally understandable to wind it down gracefully from a crescendo, so to speak. The love for it never leaves our brains/hearts and it’s normal to see the physical beginning and end through it’s course. Of course, the end is never really the end. Many of us will always keep a few cherished parts or a bike or two given the opportunity... These mementos or vestigial assets may be a far cry from where we once maxed out in the collection part of the “hobby”, but the lineage cannot be erased. We can always relive our past through positive memories and existing documentation. Notwithstanding the hypothesis above, I wholeheartedly think it’s good to sell off our best assets when we wind it down... I think the reason is logical and humane... Why not let others either cherish, trade, use and abuse anything we no longer covet physically. At the very least , it allows the objects to some how live on in some last and hopefully meaningful way... For they too will one day seize to “live”.

    Sodbuster, I'm glad you are not entirely "leaving" the hobby. I too have taken a big step back from collecting and building bikes. Part of the reason for me is what Brian Hays mentioned. There are just too many people more interested in making money than enjoying the bikes. I feel fortunate to have a couple of my old bikes from the early 80's and purchased a lot of what I have way before people started asking five and ten grand for a bike you could have bought five or ten years ago for probably 5 or 6 hundred bucks. The crazy thing is, there are still deals out there and there are definitely a lot of us here that are in fact in it for the love of bikes and not simply for financial gain. I have bought a couple of complete old school cruisers in the last couple of years for less than $1500 and I have bought many others, JMC, Thruster, GT, Race Inc., etc. all for a similar price. There was even a JMC cruiser posted on the museum recently that some guy was selling for $200, it was completely loaded and the buyer said he offered the guy what he thought was a fair price and the seller ended up actually taking less than the buyer was offering. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is we all need to keep the faith, there are definitely some problems and shady people in the game, but there are also a lot of good people out there keeping it fun and something we can all enjoy.

    Cool lookin' Moose, nice score! I would center the seat just a bit. What seat do you need... Mesinger black, marked Mongoose? P.S. Nice picture too. I would have climbed up and put it at the big guy's feet.

    I remember Toby Henderson on his Raleigh. I had a Rampar for my first "BMX" bike and just seeing a real racer on a Raleigh added a little bit of cred. Not much ~~ but a little.
