Big wheelies

Guys,
I can't remember the name of a rider from the early 80s.
Not sure what brand he rode for
What I do know
He was tall I think but the main thing he did was mono for ages WITH NO FRONT WHEEL!
Any ideas??

(markstrong10)
jim paiva  is who you are talking about. he was a local rider . If you ever see the Zeronine decal with the guy riding a wheelie with a thumbs up that was Jim.  He would pull the front wheel off and just ride for day's.

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.
