Celebrities and BMX bikes

Recommended Posts

i've found a couple pics on my computer and thought it'd make for a cool thread.  

 

people famous for something (actor, athlete, musician, singer, rapper, artist...etc), other than BMX, that you wouldn't expect to be collectors or BMX enthusiasts.

i know Slash of Guns N Roses was an old bmx racer and is known to have a few old school rides.   There's a few Hip Hop artists too.    

post up pics of anyone you know...

 

 

here's Slash of Gun N Roses fame.

This probably won't mean much to most of you on here but this is Robbie Williams, a British pop star and former member of the boy band Take That.

Saw this picture around 2003 and thought she looks awesome on that bike!  What also attracted me was her stage name Jem as she is a singer from Wales.  Always thought that would be a great name if I ever got married and had a girl.  2005 finally got married but it took seven years until we finally received our "Gem/Jem" and named her Jemma.  Oh, we never had to look through books of children's names as my wife loved it immediately!  Jemma also loves to BMX and wants to be like Alise Post.

Time for a bit of royalty - a very young-looking Prince Charles riding a Healing Industries bike on a trip Down Under!

I'm glad someone posted a picture of this.  I saw the ESPN clip where he was riding around on an SE and I bugged out and instantly thought of this thread.

 

Nice work Truly...!
