Webco BMX History

Recommended Posts

Hey Montser! Yes those black Redline forks are the mild steel model and they are NOS! I am saving them for a mild steel NOS FMF frame! Here is a pic of the frame which by the way, along with those forks were part of the historic haul of 2006!

thought i would chime into this awesome thread as a webco lover myself with the 1 and only score my wife has ever Scored for me and i mean SCORE! rewind to the last local community yard sale locally here in so cal, the old lady and me split up into 2 cars to cover more ground cause it was an entire city thing , well it was about 2:30 pm and all i have found was a car port for $100, what a waste of a day, my cell was dead, i was hungry and bummed. anyway i get home around 3 pm, and the old lady wasn't home yet , and i wondered what was going on, cause i'm starvin, at about 4:15pm she comes pulling up and a big shit eatin grin on her face, i said what are you so happy about, and said close your eyes i'll be back in a minute!!! so she comes rolling up with this bad ass webco replica total survivor 1 owner bike, she said on the last street before she was gonna call it quits, she stopped at a house that had an old beach cruiser with chrome forks, ashe thought chrome forks, wow must be something, as she was looking around, i have obviously taught her well LOL, she spotted red bars in the dudes open garage hanging upside down, she asks the guy if it is for sale and he hesitantly says , i dont know , what are you willing to pay for it, and she says $20, WOW i can't believe she said $20, and the guy says no way!!! but if you want it for $50 you can take it, YAHOOOO! it turns out the guy bought the bike brand new locally here in burbank ca., and used it a handfull of times, and it's been hangin in the rafters since about the very early 80's, hasn't changed a thing as how he had it, and the condition is flat out beautifull, all the red anno parts are perfect, i Love this bike, because he she found it for me... still has all the dust on it from the years, i dont even want to clean it. hope you guys enjoy sharing the joy of it with me....

I think there is still some unrealized potential in this thread... here's hoping some of you will help us realize it.

I'd love to know more about the key players who started the Webco BMX division from Webco Motorcycle Parts and worked with Rick Twomey in the very early stages.

 

In fact, if anyone could ever get a hold of one of those guys and do a short interview here, it would be THE BOMB.

 

First question: WTF is up with the Webco serial numbers?
