What Bike did you start BMX with

I started in the late 70s with a Schwinn Stingray with the banana seat and the ape hanger bars.

after that one it was a Huffy till I bent the frame

next was a Schwinn Predator (did not keep this one long, traded for the Torker F/F)

then a Torker Mx I road this one up till 1988 when I sold it to a pawn shop (sniff sniff WISH I HAD IT BACK NOW)

'74 Yamaha Moto- Bike, what a tank that was. Must be why I ended up on an alloy Race inc.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Huffy.  You know the one.  Flat black with a cantilever frame and a "4" numberplate.  The frame, fork, bars, and fenders are still in my basement.  Will be assembled someday.  That bike ws stripped of its seat and fenders.  Bars were repaced by some Redline V's on a Mongoose stem (long gone).  Picked up a frame I can't remember with a Matthews girder fork (!) and matching plate steel bars out of someone's trash(!!).

First 'real' BMX I built from scratch was an older Torker back in 85 or so.  Cracked that, but it's still in my basement and on its way back too.  From there the list snowballs.  Working in bike shops had its advantages.


Please don't let me buy any bikes from you.  I have an addiction.  You wouldn't want to be an enabler, would you?

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

My first bike was a shock bike in '74.It had yellow fenders and tank,but not quite a Yamaha.That's what I learned to ride on.Got a couple Huffy and Murrays along the way,and got my first real bike in '79,a blue Mongoose Motomag.That one stuck with me 'til it got stolen in '84.By then it was tricked out with the usual,Kashimax,Tuf Nneck,Z rims,CW bars,etc.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Savoy was my first remembered bmx.  Apparently, it was made for and sold by a local auto parts store (TSS) here in NYC.  Not sure if it was sold anywhere else...I have a picture of me on it on Christmas morning.  I would pay well for anyone that can locate this bike btw.

I then graduated to various huffys.  Sigmas and whatnot.  A few 2nd hand Mongooses (mongeese?) followed.  Then, around the age of 12 (1989) I got my first GT.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Early 70's, I converted a 1965(?) Murray Wildcat to BMX.  Recently scored a complete off of CL Detroit for $15. big_smile


Always looking for "t" gusset Takaras- Frames, frame sets, or completes.  Also any Odyssey 2000 brakes/parts(the cross-drilled ones)-Sets, orphan handles and calipers, just about anything.
