1972 Rick's Bike Shop Special

1972 Rick's Bike Shop Special

The roots of BMX

72 or early 73. While all the early dinosaurs were riding modified Stingrays, Rick Twomey came out with a radical new design which changed BMX. A design that is still with us this day. The bike was raced by many of the icons of the sports such as Dave Clinton, John Palfreyman, Thom Lund and Doug Takahashi

The frame has been living at Rick Twomey's house for 35 years and he gave me the honor of restoring it to it's old glory

Wow Reilly, you have a literal Smithsonian! I never tire of seeing the classics that built this sport. Thanks for doing this bike and sharing.


The battery is discharging, the oil temperature is very high, the oil pressure is very low, water temperature is off the chart and I am running out of petrol...but the clock is correct.

This bike is just amazing. Definitely one of the most important ones of BMX history. Well done. I would be too nervous to work on it.


NEEDED: Hutch magnesium rear hub; Suntour High Flange rear black hub

Keep it rad bru!!!!
