BMX BIKES

1982 SE Racing Floval Flyer

When the 24″ cruisers started coming on the scene to replace the 26″ race bikes, I was working at Golden Ring Bicycle Shop in Rosedale, Maryland. My boss Don Leiter got the frameset for me and I built this bike up and raced it in the cruiser classes as well as racing my PK Ripper the 20″ classes. In 1985 I just raced the Cruiser class, and won a Maryland District 1 Championship on this bike. At that point I switched my focus to racing Honda ATC’s, and that was it for my BMX racing. I freshened up this bike, and it has been sitting around since. Here is a brief overview of this piece of BMX history.

1-IMG_3619I cracked the frame and had to have this gusset welded on. It was done by a welder at Martin Marrietta in Essex, MD.

1-IMG_3601Son-Lite Hubs- I think these were one of the first all-billet BMX hubs. I remember seeing them on Harry Leary’s bike on the cover of BMX Action Magazine, and I had to have them!
