Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

My first bike ever was a 79 AMF Mag Force with Troxel TrackMasters.  The bike I raced on for the first time was a '77 Redline MX-II that my parents got me in 82.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

It was my first real "good" bike around 1977... a modified Schwinn Stingray with a Troxel seat, rat traps, some Ashtabula bits and a set of knobbies! I gathered all the parts from my buddies in the neighborhood of Saint Clair Shores Michigan. Man, I would love to get that bike back!

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

my Huffy went ghost off a 60 ft cliff when I got my Mongoose in '75.  That got ripped off in '77, and I got my Race Inc later that year - I still have her.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

it was about 1983 but it was 1986 when i got my first "good bike" - before then it was a highly modified Team Murray that I had.  was bone stock, then went to Wald bars (like CWs) tuff neck and misc other parts.  beat the heck out of it.  still had it up till about 4 years ago, then mom ditched it!

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Started out with & finished with a Team Murray from Pep Boys. Came with black mag star wheels that I broke three separate times and cracked the the frame two other times. Mom took it back to Pep Boys each time for on the spot replacement. I guess the warranty on them was good if nothing else. After the third wheel replacements they put gold Arayas on it and never had any problems again.
