Very cool. Orig. paperwork is under appreciated I feel. Bikes and parts are kick butt and the magazines ruled, but stuff like that help paint the whole picture of what BMX was.

Thanks for posting.

That drawing reminded me of the old theme park maps,

 

The dogs behind the concession stand are a nice touch.

That was my favorite BMX of all time. I had a blast there: I got third in the jumping contest; got to check out the SE bus (I was on an SE Hot Shop Team); watched Jeff Kosmala make his jump in the jumping contest, which produced a very well known photo; Got to witness the event that led to the Kos having a Tuff wheel in the back and spokes up front in said photo; got a bunch of autographs for my mom's BMXA mag with the double spread photo of a ton of pros; watched the Vans trick team; and most of all, was one of the few National events I went to that my pop got to go.

Great, great memories.

Did you get to go on the roof of the bus to check out the turret?

 

I wonder what happened to that half pipe trailer that Van's had back then?

 

Must have been weird riding that with a clear deck surface.
