1976 Trail Mate

1976 Stromco Trailmate, this was my buddies first true BMX bike.His dad bought him this in '76 and he has had it ever since. I just finished cleaning up for him and she looks pretty good for 40 years

For the East Coast riders, this is a part of Florida BMX history. Greg Esser, Byron Friday and Timmy Judge got their starts on this frame. My buddies dad bought him his first complete BMX bike back in '76 and it was a Trailmate frame built up. He loved this bike and race it in NJ when BMX first started back in Millville, NJ. It's a cool piece of BMX history and I enjoyed cleaning her up for him. Hope you guys like it....

Sick! Wonder if that's where Morales got the idea? Sweet frame, Iddon't usually like pre 80's stuff, but I'd definitely be down with building that.


Anything is negotiable.
