Re: Laguna build for my brother Kenny

Those are both very beautiful! BMX(building/riding) has helped me and a couple friends through some rough patches. Buried both of my younger brothers ('98 & '08), my best friend most of my life in ('13) and last week the guy I would consider an equal to the 3. We spent a lot of time in the garage the last few years. His daughter was muderered at 19, right after his wife left him and we could relate and to each other in many ways. Life throws it at you & you try to clean it up best you can. I think you're on point sir. Keep pushing!


I really have BMX bikes....I swear....

Re: Laguna build for my brother Kenny

The perfect addition to a perfect ride. I've been back to your thread a few times now and I truly believe finding this bike was one of those rare,special 'meant to be' moments in life.

Re: Laguna build for my brother Kenny

This bike should be "on the museum" in the Laguna section. It's so awesome.
