Me with my brand new Madison MX-DR Christmas possibly 1983?
Anyway, this was bought for me by my Uncle if I remember correctly, but my Mum and Dad got it for me for a Christmas present.

Sorry about the quality of the pic, it's a pic of a pic (Polaroid no doubt) lol as I don't have a proper scanner.
I'm positive this bmx was stolen the very end of 1984.
It had Tuff 2's on it by then. wink

here's a old-ish shot from 1992 Seatac bmx during one of our Pro Gold Cup mains. Local dude who ran the track and owned a Transmission shop thru in a grand $1k on top of the entry fees and we had Semi's in Pro, so some dough was involved..! I'm in lane 1 #65. Darryl Young is on the yellow bike (kastan ?) in lane 4 for R&C Racing (and w/ a questionable start ? lol). Also in this is JG Garonzik on S&M after his from Hutch and GT days, Big Mike Thomas from Port Angeles, He Man Gary Ayres, Shane Mills, Aaron Hiroshima and Zack Seacrest on Bomber RIP. I believe I got 2nd overall behind DY and I bought some Einkie Rims for my Honda CRX lol..Great times, from 89-96 we had some great local Pro battles in the Northwest ! Pic by Mike Albright.

Terrible pictures taken by one of my friends(circa 1980), still glad I have them as there's not many!
