Sandy sent this to me last year with some spokes I got. I always thought it was cool that I got a certificate of authenticity from the original Wheels 'n' Things.
He gave us all so much.
:24: :24: R.I.P Sandy Finkleman.... BMX Legend!
Please make sure to get all the info & post it (If you didn't already) so flowers can be sent.
I'd appreciate it very much.
RIP Sandy, you will be missed.
UN-Fing believable........First Kris Parenteau then Allen Cole and now Sandy? When does it end? My Mother-in-law passed in September and now the Father-in-law is rushed to emergency at 4:30am today in some kind of medical coma or something (but is now actually home, and also has alzheimers (sp). On Sunday, a guy I race cars with from NorCal, is severly injured at Glamis and on life support in SD - I have spent the last two days with his family and friends at the hospital.
Sandy wanted to get this SD reunion together and I tried to rush it, but when I found out about Kris, I lost interest for a while. I kept thinking I should have done this sooner so Kris would be a part of it. Sandy and I played phone tag a few times as I didnt want to leave him a message about Kris (eventually I did). The last time I called I woke him up and he said he would call me back................
I feel like crap now knowing that my lagging will now cause Sandy to miss it...F O C K!
I dont know what to say, except glad to have known him at VBMX sorry I missed him here . Very sad news thoughts go out to his family.
keep DB alive.

Sorry to hear the sad news. R.I.P. Sandy.
i've only been on the internet with regards to Oldschool BMX's since September but i found his posting very informative & helpful, he gave an insight into aspects of our hobby none of us would known otherwise!

RIP Sandy, a great loss to the community/, my thoughts and prayers go to all friends and fmaily at this difficult time,
Sandy had given me enough help and advice over the time I have been a member hear, I saw his post only recently and I thought he was felling better, this has come as a real shock to read this
RIP Sandy- will miss reading your posts man
Not good. really not good.
Your generosity, witt, and vast knowledge will surely be missed around here...
I hear they have him lined up to work the drop gate at a certain track up in heaven.
I can't believe this. I know I have not been on OSBMX very long but I feel I have lost a close friend. After reading all these posts, I'm sure I have. I will treasure our conversations for a very long time to come.
Thank you ROS. God Bless You.
Sad news.I only knew him through his threads that he posted.Lots of respect to him from us British lot on our radbmx site.
Having just lost a parent myself,my thoughts go out to his family and friends.
Wow, this wasn't the way I thought I was going to start the day with reading this. I can't believe we lost Sandy. I loved his posts. He always tried to help out with his knowledge, and if he didn't know he would research it. I will miss him. God Bless you Sandy. We all love you.
Truely is a sad day.
Losing any member of our comuunity from any corner of the world is a dreadful thing, Especially one that was so well regarded in the WORLD of BMX.
Thoughts coming from our side of the pond to all who are involved.
Terrible news. Condolences to all Sandy's family and friends. All the very best to you.
A sad day indeed...Rest In Peace Sandy.
