1979 Robinson

1979 Robinson

Admin Note:  Get a full side shot of the bike.

When I was a kid in Bellevue, Wa., there was a racer who would fly through our neighborhood on a red Robinson. I was enamored with this bike - until seeing it, BMX bikes were heavy looking. Not his - it was lightweight and really trick. Everything about it was new to me. So, I restored my Robinson to match his to the best of my memory. The frame was all original, but badly chipped with a lot of surface rust. The forks were not much better. This frame looks like it never had a serial number. I stripped it to bare metal and had it powdercoated back to it's proper color. The bike it is modeled after had high flange hubs, but I wanted Phils on mine. His has an six-bolt MCS stem. Until I find one of those, I am using a pro-neck. Most of the parts are either NOS or really nice originals. All I need is a Robinson frame pad and this bike is complete. The number plate was found on ebay a couple years ago as you see it. It seems really appropriate, no?

Re: 1979 Robinson

Sweet bike. The first super light BMX bikes I remember seeing were Robinson and Race Inc. I lived in Texas, and there were some locally made frames called Blazer. They weren't very durable though. Later, another locally made frame called Rebel surfaced. They were much nicer than Blazers were, but they broke easily as well. Anyway..I am a huge Robinson fan.
