Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

Yeah all of my interactions with the people here have been awesome so far : ) I really like this place.

I'm going to document the build and post a ton of pictures when it's done (aiming for mid september) so keep an eye out. I've made some pretty good progress so far. Just need some stickers for the number plate, the tires, and the chainring. Everything else I either have, or have some good leads on...so we'll see how that goes.

Thanks for the encouragement : )

few more pics for the night:

For those that never saw Atherton race, he was the king of the gate. Always the first one out....not always the holesot, but first outta the gate.

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

I read a story on one of the forums where someone said he got called for jumping the gate once because he was so far in front they assumed he must have, but he didn't lol


Joey, he doesn't even own a bmx bike sad When he goes on the 4130 rides he has to borrow a bike. That's why the sting I'm building is so important : )

No I'm in berkeley working in a lab for a professor big_smile It's making this a little easier to do up here. I wish I could go on one of those rides with him...that'd be pretty cool. One of these days I'll be down there for it.

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

Evan,

Here's what Dave Christensen and I look like now.  We still ride and Dave is competitively racing for the last two years.  I just practice with him and keep him aware that guys with flatties can go just as fast or faster AND able to swoop in the corners...it's all great fun riding like we did as kids!

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

On your picture, notice how your dads leathers the WIN in Schwinn is in in different colors.

This picture is from BMX Plus! covering an early 1980 National.

That's so awesome. Thanks for posting that. I've never seen that picture. That's pretty cool with the WIN...i never noticed that :-P I can never tell what the sticker in the upper left is on that plate. Any ideas? I might have this one recreated.

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

Thanks for posting that last pic of Evan.  Your Dad got me into Schwinns(along with Mike Poulson, a Utah native), I became a Harry Leay/DB fan because he is of smaller stature like me, and an Eddy King fan becasue he as such an awesome rider,and rode on DB with Harry

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

Ok the BB logo cleaned up. You could probably just make the sticker at Kinkos. Just ask pops what color it was (probably black or blue).
Then just guess the size.

That's pretty cool to hear : )

Racer: Thanks for the pic! Anyone know a good sticker guy? I wanna get it done right.

I can't ask my dad because it's a surprise :-P Black is pretty safe it seems.

Thanks for the help : )

Try Planet X if you can afford him. He can do the whole plate for you.

Re: Atherton pics from the photo album

Thanks JT...will do : ) I posted that pic on facebook and asked my dad. I didn't think it would give anything away. He said that's where he got all his bikes dialed in by Pippin. He also said in some pictures you can see one on the seatpost downtube at the bottom bracket.

speaking of Mike Carruth....he posted this picture a long time ago of his mom and my dad that I came across and it always makes me laugh:

http://i924.photobucket.com/albums/ad90/boshwan527/BMX/dadlol.jpg

Edit: He already got back to me and he said he'll send me some : ) and some t-shirts too! awesome guy. Now to sort out the color issue lol...though looking at that pic up there a little closer I'm starting to think it was blue

oh and I still have to find a couple of those red schwinn chainstay stickers for the plates if anyone has any :-P
