Being a hardcore bmx, and then moto guy, I have always dug FMF stuff over all the other crossover brands. I did manage to get a start on build years ago, but didn't like the polished frame. I did out bid Darren Chan for the FMF fork though haha.

I tried to link back to this thread from Facebook, dudes won't leave FB though... they just post their bikes on the thread on FB. That is really bizarre... I'm talking about dudes who are members here in many cases.

I was into Motocross as well as BMX in 76 so I was a fan on both fronts.

That red FMF bicycle is looking good and done right!

Not made by FMF, but an FMF frame is the first thing I think about when I see a Laguna brake bridge.

Cool forks. Did they have any date code stamp or makers mark? Just curious if FMF made them or made for them. I haven’t found any info about it.

I just can't sign off on those small tires (front tire only maybe) on the Tim FMF. Surely a front big was the flavor during that time period, no?

True dat. But besides that, the bike is absolute fire.
