1978 CYC Stormer

A recreation of my first bmx racing bike. THIS BIKE IS SOLD!!

I had a 1978 CYC Stormer just like this one back in 1978.  Like many of my bikes, sadly, this one was stolen too (bastards!).  This bike was the first bike I raced at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds near Golden Colorado.  I was in the lead of my first race heading into the final turn, my foot slipped off of the pedal, causing me to go wide right, and i ended up fourth (by a hair!)  The top 3 got trophies.  OOOPS!  I let my friend ride this bike (he did not have a good bike) and he rode it to a first place trophy!  I guess I can't blame the bike! lol  Even though the thing is a tank (you can get ripped if you use the frame for curls!) it brings back a flood of great memories.  I had a blast building it.  I hope you enjoy!  Thanks for looking!
