Re: New Zealand

Old-school bmx racing in Christchurch 13th May 07. North Avon BMX track, Bexley Reserve, Pages RD. Pre 1989 bmx bikes only. I rang Malcolm at Linwood Cycles today and he told me about it. 10am rego. Im taking my HMX 500 along to race. I dont know what it costs to enter but I dont care, Im racing regardless smile Ive got a race number plate coming and im looking forward to some 'hussin'! Great fun. I hope the HMX will handle a race or two without breaking. I will be in the PushBikes shop van so come say Gday!

Re: New Zealand

I am just starting on this restoration of a 1981 Supermax..

Its exactly like the first BMX I ever rode, my best friends back in 1981.. I like to think it could be the exact same bike

Its been repainted at some stage, & the decals are not in the right place..

Anyone have a set of Supermax decals >?.. or know who can reproduce ?

Cool bike dave. Looks reasonably straight and original. A good starting point for a resto.

Try Cycle Trading Co in Christchurch for some snakebellies! They still have some old-school stuff floating around. I have tried some suppliers at work and they havnt had them for years. 03 366 3760.
