Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

I am hoping to make it to rockford next year. I love your bike, everything is amazing. Wanted to know if you would look at my first build. Right now the Bullseye cranks are in Arizona getting new bearings and white stickers. I am also replacing the v-bars with SE racing power bars and I have Blue and white Oakley F-1 grips with a blue Shimano DX lever. Again your bike is amazing. Please let me know what you think about the Bobby Encinas replica. Sorry to bother. Thanks, Dan

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Admin : No Serial Number again...I guess this history is going to be deleted also...


In the 80's, I was riding the streets with Eric (Hutch), Jamie (GT), Jody (JMC), & Ronnie (Diamond Back). North Hollywood, CA to The Teen Center in Van Nuys, CA. The best LBS was The Pedal Shop, where I bought my first & only JMC frame, forks, & parts for my very first build...

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Stunning!!!!

Are those Snakebelly tires or are they something else?  Since they don't make Snakebelly anymore and I'm hoping maybe yours isn't snakebelly and I can still get them because I'd love a set for my bike.

All my serial #'s are listed on my application form to the museum. Next to the spot where you fill in the serial # it states:"Not shown on the site"

Thanks Zeekle, those are genuine skinwall Cycle Pro Snakebellys, I bought them about 3 years ago on ebay,(thank god!),,havent seen many since. However, from time to time the gumwall ones do appear and much cheaper if those would be cool with you.

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Yeah, gumwall are cool - I remember that snakebelly pattern well - at the time, snakebelly was the only logical choice since I did most of my riding on the street - they should really start offering that tread again, they'd make their money back.  cool

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Right now, I have a set of Comp III tires on and they complete my build with that great "old school" look.

Unfortunately, I still do all of my riding on the street - for how I ride, Comp III is overkill. hmm

Re: 1978 Cook Bros. Racing

Maybe a tire manufacturer will read this and see the great opportunity in re-issuing old school treads! big_smile

FYI, I'm not a rich guy, yet I've probably spent close to $1000 restoring my "old school ride" this year (2008-2009).  In case you've been living in a cave for the past 2 years, we're in a global recession/depression and I'm selling stuff on ebay just so I can buy more BMX products. 

People who love their old bikes put a high priority on getting them to look just right - and BMX has been a "must have bike" for the past 30 years.

That's my thesis cool

So what are you waiting for?  Drop $30K for an injection mold and start cranking out those snakebellys!

...or I will lol
