Hi everyone - this has been a great thread to read through and I'm glad to have found it!  Very cool to get some history and your commentary around it.  I have a 1978 G-Boy and thought it would be cool to share. I've included some recent pics.  Cheers, Dan

nice bike. a few different decades of parts :)

Thanks, Steve - yup it's kind of a mix of what I had to work with!  Since posting here, I added an entry to the bmxmuseum.com forum as well where I went into detail about the history of the bike. It's here, if you're interested: https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=832465

Cheers,

Dan

I have my brothers G-boy. It still has the original chrome plating. He got it from Pete's bike shop (P.P.P.)in Norco around 1980. If I can figure out how to post a pic I upload a couple.
