Re: What bikes have you owned?

Murray 19?? (with blue Skyway tuff wheels)
Diamond Back 1986
Torker 198?  (Araya rims, redline stem and bars)
?? Some say the frame is a "Blazer", some say it's a Robinson.  Includes CW bars, Redline stem, Tange forks, Ukai Rims (red), Team Schwinn Cranks (red).  The rims and cranks were from an early Schwinn Sting.
Just bought a Schwinn Brian Foster Super Stock One with Perigrine 48 spoke rims, slam bars, and Specialized cranks.  Not for sure of the year.  Think it's an '01.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

Blazer was  a short lived Texas company. I have no doubt someone (like Robinson) made their frames for them.  Look in an old ABA paper to see a Blazer add, i forgot what they looked like.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

The Hyper Metro, I got the name for the bike after I was stuck in trafffic on the 10 freeway behind a Metro bus. Look at a Metro bus logo sometime then at the Hyper Metro sticker smile You'll see the inspiration for sure.
Do you remember the model we offered before the Metro? Only 25 were ever built of our first model. You can see a picture of the bike and me and my partner in an old BMX Plus ('91-92 issue I cant remember month)

Re: What bikes have you owned?

Yep it was the HPR 20, a two piece frame. I hope you liked our Green and Purple uniforms, I was behind those also. Carter and the Blue Falcon looked great in them. But getting those two to ride for us was all my partners (Clay Goldsmid) doing. He raced against Eric and they became freinds.
I had a set of Hyper Hubs on my Boss cruiser but the bike got stolen.
The Hyper Hubs were made for us by TNT and were simply the Revolvers before they got milled out.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

Thats so cool, even I dont have one of those anymore or my Hyper helmet if you remember those. I lived with Clay for one year to get Hyper going, so i got to ride his backyard and go lake jumping. Good times.  I was on the same Bike Shop team with him (Action Wheels, I designed that jersey also) and originally Hyper was gonna be a Software company. Then I moved out west and we found a frame builder. Hyper starterd going well and I moved in with Clay for a year to pump it even more. The rest is history.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

Haro FST (trimoly sport frame)
GT aggressor
Mongoose decade
Gt vertigo(bolt on bash guard)
Dyno compe
mongoose expert
Robinson pro(early 90's)
mongoose solution
ELF double cross(my all time fav)
I think that's about it in order. Started on freestyle frames moved to lighter racing frames set up for street. Spike Jones(rider come director) was my inspiration I remeber pictures of him riding street comps on a robinson.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

What bikes have I *owned*? Uhh..., o-k. Lemme see...

1963 Custom Stingray (owned it, got rid of it, got it back, lol)
1978 Schwinn (It was yellow and black. Had a fake black gas tank. Stingray of some sort)
1979 Mongoose Motomag
1980 Mongoose Blue Max
1980 Diamond Back (can't remember what model it was)
1982 Diamond Back Silver Streak
1985 Haro Sport
1986 Haro Master
1987 Hutch Windstyler
1987 Huffy Sigma
1987 GT Pro Performer
1988 Schwinn Predator
1988 Huffy XR 1000

There were more, but I cannot remeber right now. I do have a ton more now though, lol. NOTE: In case anyone wants to know (I usually never admit it, but) the bike I miss most was my 1988 Huffy XR 1000. Yeah I know, jus' a Huffy to most, but it was my favorite. I hope someone is taking care of it and loves it as much as I did/do... No, I didn't sell it, it was stolen back in 1995. sad
