  1. The third in the series was this 1976 R&R Supelight model. This particular bike was raced back in the day by Todd Fleming, who was the National Number 2 rider and sponsored by LRV. The 'extra' gusset was welded in by Todd's Dad as these were prone to break with a lot of abuse. The frame has been through a number of 'collectors' hands including Donnie Baird and Jeff Haney before it came to me. I also managed to track down Todd and he confirmed that it is his old race bike from back in the day.
  2. This was the second R&R that i built. 1976 pro gusset model. I got this from Dan Williams and as you can see it was a real basket case, i had to save it. I had a friend cut out the seat post tube and re-weld in a new one in cro-moly. The drop outs also recieved some welding and were massaged back into shape. I couldn't let this one die...
  3. This is the first R&R that i built around 6/7 years ago. 1977 frame/forks rolling on Dale Enterprise MX-60s.
  4. A lot of debate has gone on over the years as to what is the frame that has had the most influence on BMX design. I've always said (rightly or wrongly, just my opinion) that it is the Mongoose. They are just soooo good to ride...:-)
  5. I know, these are my favourite stem of all time. I've ran one on my Champion for around six years and it's survived all the abuse i've ever given it.
  6. MCS six bolt stems by 'Sittiphol' are on Ebay straight outta Thailand...!!!!!!
  7. Ever since Mike posted the pics up on FB i knew this bike was important and potentially the most significant 'find' since i have been involved in the first decade of BMX. I'm absolutely blown away that this bike has been owned by Mike since '77 and he didn't know the importance of what he actually had. Hat's off to you guys on the Society for filling in some of the blanks and providing the history behind #163. Steve
  8. That is actually a very fair comment Steve and one that i will take on board from all you guys. If and when i use any content from the main site, i'll be sure to give the source credit. To be honest BEAR'S isn't even two years old yet and i remember when some of you guys first joined myself and Rupert were getting blasted for not saying who took the photo. We were like "What are we doing wrong". All we did was shared some proper rad photos we were finding on the net. What we had to learn was the protocols of sharing which tbh i am still doing. So i'm happy for constructive criticism. You guys are STILL number one. Steve
  9. Some of you know and some of you do not know that i run BEAR'S BMX from BITD on Facebook. I have happily used content from this thread to spread the word to the masses and it has been very well recieved by everyone that has seen the pictures that have been used so far. I have always given credit to the riders and the photographers (if i know who they are) and various persons have happily chipped in with missing information. BMX Society has always been an inspiration to me as it contains some serious names in the sport/hobby and provides fantastic research material/photos. If you were not there back in the day or have come into the vintage scene later on in life (as i did) then there are not that many resources available to the average guy with no contacts. I feel that BEAR'S has helped in spreading '70s BX/MX/BMX across the globe and i have been honoured to 'meet' the pioneers of this glorious sport/hobby and can happily call some of them friends. But, if using any of the photos from this thread causes that much of an upset i'll stop using them in future. Steve
