My Holy Grail - The one that got away!

1981 GJS - The one that got away

Back in 1981, I purchased my first GJS A frame from a local shop called Advanced Trickery in Glenview Illinois.  I paid slightly over $100  with taxes and was thrilled to have this uniquely designed chrome beauty as my main ride.  On the way home, my Mother decided that $100 was just too much for a frame and she turned the car around and made me return it.  I then purchased my Supergoose for about $15 less and it became my rider for the years to follow.  Since that day, I had always wanted a GJS.  I have seen them available but always felt that the cost was just above what I was willing to pay.  I decided to take a chance and put up a request in the Wanted section on BMX Museum and in May of 2016 my dream came true.  A member offered me a gorgeous chrome A frame at a very agreeable price.  Within a week, she was all mine.  

Since this was "the one that got away" on me.  I decided to build this to the best I could (within reason) and I thing it turned out great!
