I kept emailing him to get Genes details which were never forthcoming, then he would just ignore me. He was trying to get a bike for himself, don't know if he ever had any luck.

 

the latset Classic BMX Mag has all the history of G boy in it and a plea for Gene to contact me.

 

we'll see.

I know someone that offered him some forks, they talked one time and then he disappeared.

very interesting read. the history is very deep in bmx lore. strange that in my years i never saw one or heard of one 80 to 85. cool bike though , and a family story even makes it better. i am a g boy fan now.:)

The blue one Brisben bought was mine. I so hated to sell that frame. I was moving across the country and just could not take all my stuff. I want it back now dammit. Oh,well 

 

I sold that G-Boy, a complete 1985 Mongoose Californian, a 1985 Californian frame,fork and bars. A mid 80's ish Dyno frame and fork. A complete GT I can't even remember the year of, and a mountain of parts. And a broken Redline frame I had always meant to repair and refinish.

 

The sad part is most of the scratches and wear on the bike happened after I was old enough to drive and the bike sat around at my parents house. I was super anal about my bikes. That bike was in my bedroom unless I was on it. My little brother and his friends, not so much. But, at 16 ,the bike seemed pretty unimportant.

 

It had a Tuffneck and Araya's on it when I left it. But the time I got it back, what you see is all that could be saved.

It has been a few years since the last reply, and 10 since I posted. My son is now riding my G-boy around the neighborhood...as I wanted, but I am still very anxious every time. Glad to read the history, thank you all for posting over the years!
