1981 Repco X-Gusset Hotfoot

An old find - Repco Hotfoot  made in good old oz

1981 20" BMX made by Giant Bikes for Repco in Australia
In the process of restoring with original clean bits,
I have 2 Hotfoot frames, the Hotfoot 1 and a Giant Super MX
The Hotfoot 2 had the better option parts on it back in the early 80's
Im following the original colours - blue, yellow and gold with some chrome
With update pics as I go along....
Serial No - G0981
.
G is for Giant, '09 is for September, and the last 2 digits are the year, 1981
81 was the first year of x-gusset Hotties, so that's pretty cool, and this one has just celebrated its 30th birthday
Great info on Giants and Hotfoots - http://www.bloggingadeadhorse.com/hotfoot.php

Haha, cheers bigkev... they will become an iconic bike I think, very cool x-gusset... if you can find one that hasn't been abused these days
Did you see the giant super mx I had as well, same frame but later, came up good for original paint
