Would like lots of bikes but the SE Hauler is one that has a lot of sentimental value to me. Anyone got one?

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

Cool thread!  I've always loved the smoothed out welds on the Cannondales.  Here are three Treks I've restored over the years.  All really nice, well built bikes.

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

There were 2 different versions of the Bontrager BMX bikes. Pre-Trek, and Post-Trek. I remember seeing the early ones in Bontragers booth at Interbike before Trek bought Keith out. They were sweet, with the stepped tubing like his older MTB's. I've never seen one since.

Also Super rare are handbuilt Brodie BMX bikes. They were made in BC by Paul Brodie in the early 90's. I think they were only made on demand, but they did produce both 20 and 24" models
I still sell Brodie's bikes, and have been trying to track one down for years. Brodie themselves don't even have a picture of one. So you BC guy's keep your eyes out for one!!!

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

Think we all forgot one of the big boys. 
Intense were and still are building crazy MTB's. My last race bike was an M1 and it was one of the best around at the time.

Just picked up what appears to be a 1995 B-29 cruiser.  No pix yet -- it's gonna need some work.

I think MTB first on both companies.

1997 Gary Fisher Lush Rush Fuel

I bought this bike new in early 1998 from a bike shop in Tempe AZ. I think it was named bicycle wheelers or something like that. I rode the crap out of this thing, commuting 23 miles a day from home to school. It has travelled with me across the country on numerous occasions. I still own it but it is currently in storage in AZ. Everything is original except the handlebars, seat post and the rear innertube. Yes it still has the original front tube from 1997. Slime works, this thing has romped through the desert plenty.

http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn50/chakuech/bmx%20bikes/garyfisher01_zps8ac32aba.jpg

I picked this one up last weekend for the bars and seat post. Everything on this original except the seat, grips(none), brake lever and rear tire. tubes unknown wink tongue

http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn50/chakuech/bmx%20bikes/20140412_150120_zps740b3b05.jpg

This is one of the best bikes I have ever owned, even to this day, and now im fortunate to own two!!


WANTED:
Hutch Hi-caliber brakes in purple reign!!!
CULT AK V2 pivotal seat in midnight purple!
Shadow Killer cranks in copper!
Less talk, more riding. Unless we're talkin REPOP!!
