Not BMX but thought this cool cat did capture the vibe of the '70's.

That shot with Stu holding court is amazing. I wonder what bike he is riding, as it looks like Perry is still on a Mongoose frame. But with that said, there is a DB III / IV on the left side as well. Thoughts?

 Lars, if you enlarge the photo quite a bit, you can see that Perry is on a loop tail frame... looks like a PK rear triangle from what we can see.  Also there is another bike that I have circled that is a PK as it has decals... so, I think PK is on a PK probably.

Steve, thanks for clarifying. The calipers on Perry's bike let me to believe it would be Mongoose chain / seat stays. But of course, it wouldn't make any sense at all, seeing the dude to the left with a proper PK. In any case, this image is pure gold. Thanks for sharing.
