1981 BH Meteor

1981 BH Meteor

The first ever BMX bike made in Spain

The Meteor was created by BH, probably, the biggest bike manufacturer of Spain in the early 80's. It was settled in the Basque Country, in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. It was used to start promoting BMX since 1981 (when Barcelona held the first ever BMX race of the country) and on. It was a tough (nothing ever broke) but quite heavy bike. I decided to build a "racing" version of it, using parts from the early 80's (that were later used in other BH models).
