That volume 1 issue #1 of freestylin' with Wilkerson on the cover should be worth something to someone.  :)

Whats the difference between "Freestyle" and "Freestylin" ? Both are Wzard Publications.

I think it was just a name change. Obviously Freestylin' came first. Betting you won't find any overlapping issues between the two. Wizard sent out a complementary copy of the first issue of Freestylin' to all BMX Action subscribers. It came with a nice letter from Oz inviting them to subscribe to the new mag too. Oz always a class act!

 

Also that first issue came with a pullout poster. (like it says on the cover.) If your copy still has it, it is worth more.

The BMX Racer mag was the only issue they put out. I still have vol 1 issue 1 bicycles and dirt with my name on it.

That issue of Freestyle was a one issue only name change. They realized the mistake, then changed it back.

 

Awesome tidbit of info there, never noticed that before.

That freestyle crap you speak of is what keeps and kept BMX alive for all these years.  Food for thought?

Dtr, that was total sarcasm. Obviously you dont know me. It was in good fun. I always jab at the freestyle guys.

Thanks Shingle.

Ya, Sod, I was gonna say that I do have issues before and after that and Shingle explained it. I need to look and see if the poster is still intact.

 

I did find an issue of BMX Plus with an article on PK that actually has his autograph in pen along with a couple other guys. Ill get pics. I spent tonight sorting everything by chronilogical date and brand and filing them in order and getting them all put away. Now i need to start going through every issue one at a time. Cant wait. Been alot of work.

Don't you have a big collection of mags you're trying to sell now?
