    We (As the BMX Society) have an "affiliate" relationship now with Rail the Berm. Shortly after the BMX Society / Valley Relics show last spring, I did a podcast episode with the Rail the Berm guys, which was the segue into a relationship rooted in mutual promotion. These Rail the Berm dudes are cool - not really collectors, they are more core racing dudes. It's a good show by dudes who are passionate about BMX racing and race culture. Let's support them by giving a listen and share. They are doing the same for us.

    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.

    Rick Twomey of Rick's Bike Shop fame's birthday is a holiday for us... the man had such an impact on BMX, this site and indeed... Rick continues to have a deep impact on my life personally - and that may sound melodramatic, but I assure you - it is literally true. Where I live and what I do for a living now... all of it is connected to my relationship to Rick. This is not lost on me. Forever grateful and with deep respect... Happy Birthday Rick

    Well folks, I've been pretty scarce around the site since we got everything fixed and the new site up in the beginning of August. The reason is that SO MUCH changed in my life last month. You see... I know longer live in Long Beach, CA. I moved to Oregon. In the very beginning of August, I was literally driving up to Oregon on a scouting mission for places to move to, and work, as I was getting messages from the web developers who fixed the cluster fuck that I'd gotten into with the new server etc. That all worked out that afternoon with the website after months of obstacles. It was the beginning of a whole new period, in fact, of things working out for me. I had become used to shit not going my way. It's been a struggle the last few years. I don't want to dwell on that at this point. So, here's the deal: I live in Eagle Point, Oregon now. It's a little town in Southern Oregon My wife and I both work for Jim Belushi. I grow cannabis and she is in the packaging department most of the time. We work at Jim's farm. My boss is BMX hall of famer and Rick's Bike Shop alumni, Thom Lund. Best manager I EVER had. Thom is the man. This is my dream job. It's been a LONG time since I could honestly say, "I love my job". But I can say that now... and mean it. I was made for this shit. I freaking love it. Also... life in a small town - haven't done that for a very long time, arguably never as an adult. So far, so good! Takes me about 8-10 minutes to get to work at the farm. My commute in Los Angeles was NEVER less than an hour and 20 minutes... often two hours etc. Fuck that. It's soul crushing. I love living in Oregon. Zero regrets... the only bad thing is that a handful of homies are far away now. Especially my neighborhood partner in crime, LBshane... he doesn't know it yet, but he will move to Oregon too.

    About 9-10 years ago, the OM said he had a hat for me. Never got it from him but still a cool gesture. On October of this year, Scoty Jr. saw a drawing I posted on the Society's Facebook page where Scot signed the drawing off to "Radical Rick. He contacted me and asked me if his dad called me Radical Rick and if he "owed" me a hat. I told him that I was pretty certain that he called a few people that including Damian. He said he was going to send me the hat nevertheless. I told him I could not really say that was the one for me but he said it was all good. Put a tear in my eye. Scot was so good at making even the lowest moto-filler special. He's still doing from the great beyond.

    Well just before Christmas this popped up in the bay with a bin or best. Well it had posted about 20 minutes Priorso I made an offer and got it. Well I sent my phone number and the guy called me and I found out he raced this bike as a kid down in Texas in the 80’s so I asked if he had any other “Bmx stuff” and he had his helmet, old rad gloves,his plate and a nos Black and yellow Hot plate that he tossed in on the deal. Any rate she needs a good cleaning and I hole I can save the CW bars (rusty). But what I thought was pretty cool was the 180mm full wrap set up. Some how mounted a odd ball spider lol.

    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 as I do on a regular basis I posted that old “looking for old BMX” listing and yesterday I got a text with this. Guy was asking $50 for it so you know the rest. Picked it up this morning and man she’s a beauty. Really only needs a good wipe down and some air in the tires and done. And I love the shop sticker as I use to go to the shop bitd.

    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...

    So a wile back I was contacted by a guy with this frame and story is this. His brother was the biggest Torker Distributor in California in the mid to late 70s it was very good friends with the Johnson family. One day his older brother owner of Winkel wheels asked him if you wanted to go to the factory with him and of course he said yes was introduced to Steve in the office with all sorts of Torker stuff hanging behind them on the wall, Steve went on to ask what frame he raced And he replied my sister’s Pk right after he said that Steve responded not anymore and handed him this frame and fork with stem off the wall and said now you ride Torker. And as a young lad he peeled the red candy coat off the frame that was also fitted with the original lightning bolt torker decal set. And put the decals on it that you see today. Raced/rode it for many years And once he got a car you put it up until the day he contacted me through Facebook. Told me the story it was hard to believe that he actually called me and I’ve been talking to him ever since. Hell he told me he comes from a large family of 15 brothers and sisters !! Any way this is where I am at with it as of today still waiting for the wheel set to be built (Phil woods on Arya 7b with red stripe) and I can’t wait to finish it. The frame was the original frame to set the jigs for all lp’s to follow. SN is T1PL and came with 1st gen gold Six bolt and I’m drilled forks.I have added the dura ace cranks,kkt rats and my go with some old v-bars. As this is how I was told he rode it bitd. I will post more pics as she gets built.

    So I feel I need to chime in on this subject... As for the quality of the packing job, only the best "tools" were used including Shiner Bock, a bottle opener and some trap music, maybe a crescent wrench and pretty close to the correct size sockets and a handful of old towels and free T-shirts thrown in each box. So yeah, shits gravy. On a side note, will this be the year that you duplicate the Christmas morning photo? Can I suggest replacing the actual tree with another 6 foot crop from the farm? I can't wait to see that card taped on my refrigerator!!

    Pffft, Oregon. Yeah, well growing weed with Jim Belushi could be cool.... if that's your thing. I just want to take this opportunity to announce that I have a recent opening on the LB Peninsula Bench if any parties are interested, PM me your application. Must have vast knowledge of early SE Racing and S&M and also the ability to kill an 18-pack of Tecate is a must!! Oh and congrats I guess too (peace sign emoji, etc.)

    Got these form Linn Kastan last week via email. Looking at the forks for the squareback I'm guessing 75 since he didn't say a year. Just thought it was cool to see and share. The prices!!!! If only.

    So after looking at the MX and seeing some others out there I dropped the rear brake & swapped out the spokes to a og set of Moto 1’s I have. And man I tell ya I really like it. You know simple is sometimes better as some have said about this frame the coaster was meant for it. Any rate I dig the look and can’t wait to ride it. Going to pop a blue chain rating on it and call it done.

    Rick personally sent me a shirt through this site a few years back. I wore it a lot and then retired it to the bike room (left of the window). He didn't know me from Adam at first but more than once he and I had some good BMX talks on Facebook years back. He always was so kind to me. Steve, I never made the connection until you just commented about your job but yes he DEFINITELY has had a huge impact on you and your life choices. I'm sure he's smiling now. Happy Birthday, Rick.

    Send it to me. As a former professional art handler, I will evaluate your packing job. If I find it up to snuff, I'll let you know that it is safe to leave all of the other bikes in their boxes for long term storage. If the pack job does not pass, I will ask you to unpack the other bikes immediately, and I will hold on to the GT to make sure it is never improperly packed again. Actually, either way I'll hold on to the bike, because awesome bikes do not belong in boxes!

    This thing is so nice. I honestly wasn’t expecting much. I saw it in a garage sale ad yesterday. I really tried to unsee it, figuring it would be gone quick. I thought it was a laguna, but all I could see was the rear triangle. This morning I figured what the hell and messaged the poster to see if he still had it. Yup. Well damn. Had to drive up to the lake to get it but it was a pleasant surprise. Scorpion bars Araya steel rims Goodyear tires Normandy hubs tourney brakes all I had to add was a seatpost. They wrecked the original removing it.
