  10. Hey guys. I am by no means the last word on collecting and old school parts. Many of you are much more on top of that stuff. But I will tell you this, I rode bmx and freestyle from the late 70's. I knew Lyle Addicks. In fact, Andy Patterson, David Ruz and Jimmy Garrett and myself used to hang out at his little shop in the late 70's and early 80's right next to John Anderson Ford Park in Bell Gardens, CA. I always thought Lyle was an older dude when I was a kid, but I actually talked to him a couple years ago. I bumped into him while he was selling his house here in Downey and moving to Texas. His house ended up not selling, but he did buy a golf course in Texas and was real excited about relocating. So I had to ask him, "how old were you when you were making those parts back in the day?" and he said he was around 21 or 22 years old. He also told me that he lived in China for a while and was doing engineering or something like that. But he sounded really good and he was so happy to reconnect and I gave him Andy's number and they talked for hours. And the funniest part, I have to say it, is that I could tell he couldn't quite remember me until I told him I was the real scrawny, ugly kid, with long black hair. Then he laughed and said, "Oh yeah!" LOL! But the point I wanted to mention is that I had one of these stems, he gave it to me at the time. There was always shit laying around and he'd give us stuff that wasn't absolutely perfect. I had one of these stems well before 82. I can't remember exactly, but I quit riding after the 82 king of the skateparks contest, and I know it was before that because I'd been running tuff necks before then and I remember having that long before I got out of riding all the time. So it might have been patented in 82, but I know they were around before that.Maybe I'll try to check in with him. I just looked for his number in my phone, and it wasn't there. I'll have to dig a little when I have time.
