Re: 1979 DG Racer

actually..thid bike belonged to Jimmy Buchanan co factory rider late 70's early 80s ...he was the older guy my neighborhood we all chased after when he brought his bike out taught us how to do what we do ...BMX.
long story short i was supposed to buy it for 125 dollars but another neighborhood kid snaked me .well fast forward 26 years guess who got it now.

Re: 1979 DG Racer

Second dibs!! $$$$  just wishful , hopeful , begging.  kidding on the serious side , Nice bike that carries with it very true BMX History. It's really something to have a piece of BMX when it first orginated. That you can relate to  and reminisce with friends the good ol times!!

Re: 1979 DG Racer

Nice DG! Are you sure it is a Racer? I thought I saw this on Vintage and Ben Or stated it was a ZF1.

Re: 1979 DG Racer

I've been scanning those myself.  Simon @ oldschoolmags is the man, and I was just trying to help contribute. I've done about 15 for him so  far.
