Re: why are you in the hobby

I'm here for you


planetbicycle@yahoo.com

Would love to find my old Dirt Bike.  It was stolen in Pompano Beach, Florida in about 1996.  It's a '92 with the block graphics on a Green frame.  Pitchforks, Slam bars, King Headset, GT (DK-style) stem and GT/Profile cranks.  Superlace hubs.  Would really love to put this back in my collection.

I joined up to research a bike I was interested in. Then I bought it, then I modified it, then I got sucked into another bike, and another . . .

I'm here for the same reason(s) I started riding BMX 40 years ago. BMX in general just fascinates me.

Re: why are you in the hobby

Good question, definitely not the money, probably trying to relive one of the most important parts of my youth.  I don't find a lot of BMX bikes though I've found a few and really enjoy cleaning them up and occasionally riding them, I never part them them though I do on occasion part with them!
