1976 G-Boy

1976 G-Boy

Formerly owned by Tim Millman (the kid that the first ever G-Boy was made for) this is the 20th G-Boy ever made as seen in Classic BMX mag. I am honoured to own this bike.

G-Boy  frame 76-020
G-Boy  decals (were NOS)

G-Boy girder   fork (were NOS)
Cook Bros stem clamps
Honda Bars
Shimano brakes
Oakley 1 grips
Addicks chainwheel
KKT pedals
Chen Shin tires
Araya 7B rims
Phil Wood hubs
Suntour seat clamp
Hunt Wilde plate

I have built this bike to keep with it's "agricultural" 70's roots, the seat stay had to be repaired and you can see the welds are crude which is typical of the early G boys, I love this bike it's truly my favourite. B-MX in the early days.
I hope you like it.

Re: 1976 G-Boy

I just picked up a 76 frame with the larger diameter seat post tube. What size and kind of seat post did you use on your g-boy? Thanks

Re: 1976 G-Boy

Such a sick bike. I have a huge seat from the 60's that has the same seat gut design. I'm going to put it on a rat rod type build. Its going to have parts from the 60's , 70's , 80's , 90's , all the way to 2011/12 or 13. So far I have a 77-79 Motomag frame , Motomag II front wheel , the front tire is off of a '76 Huffy Bandit (look it up its awesomely hideous), early 90's GT invert stem , 80's Landing Gear copy forks ,  Odyssey T-1000 back rim (red flames/36 hole) and thats it for now. The Motomag II front wheel never had guts put in it so Im going to machine a spacer and get some sealed bearings for it (bearing size is: 22mm tall , 10mm ID , 6mm wide) Bearing # is 6900. The thickness of the hub shim would need to be 3.25mm or around 1/8" thick in between the outside of the bearing and the inside of the hub. The outer dia. of the shim would be 28.5mm.


Looking for : Bomber #'s , NOS/good condition white (red ,white and blue decals) 50's Seiss bike light , Huffy Bandit tire , Camel Supercross stuff , maybe a 20" rear suspension frame.
