Cool shots, Andy.
I 2nd that. Excellent Scans. I have one I need to dig out of Greg getting monster air in a BMXA test of the GHP "ensemble". If anyone else has it scanned already, I'd love to see it here.

Cool shots, Andy. Let's see some Charlie Williams in GHP colors if anybody has pics. I always admired his racing.
I saw Charlie Williams in Hutch somewhere.

Charlie left Hutch for GHP.
Done good too.
Do you have ties to GHP or just like 'em a lot?

Cool history in greater detail , thanks .
I think I read in the history on your other site that GHP was fully operational in August 1983 , would the earliest frames be serial'ed 883*** ? .

I've got an 8/83 - one of the first ones ever made. It had the gusset like the later GHP's had. I think they were Star frames used for GHP.
Cheers for the info Neil , would the first without gusset be 9/83***'s then maybe ? . Are there any 8/83's without gusset around I wonder ......................
I've got a 9/83 , no gusset .

It was bought as a "Greg Hill" fork. Not a GHP fork.
I'm not sure if it was post-Cycle Pro era, or one of the many era's of GHP.
Seems like this would be the thread to confirm it in.

I've heard there were two different forks on the CP GHP Replicas. One was a Tange fork, and the other a Cycle Pro fork. I've never seen visual evidence of the CP fork, so I can't confirm. The Tange's have scalloped ends similar to yours, but the dropouts were unique. They weren't so much a blade as those are (I'll have to take pics of my Tange's). The only Replicas that I've seen including my own (a few have popped up on Museum recently) have the Tange forks.
Keep in mind -- Cycle Pro's were Cycle Pro's and GHP were GHP's. Cycle Pro did not make any official GHP items, only Greg Hill/GHP licensed products of their own.
One possibility is that they came off a GHP Phase 1 (low-budget GHP -- was essentially a re-stickered Redline MX II circa 85). I'll have to see if I can dig up a pic of one to compare.
Edit -- I found a pic of a Phase 1, but it was frame only. Anyone have an ad or other picture of the Phase 1? (Matt, how do you come up with all of these stumpers?)

The Greg Hill Signature CP frame set looked just liek a GHP, not the frame in the pic above.
Phil - that is a great article - I got that Super BMX issue from you I believe - rad shot of Charlie Williams - just how I like my GHPs - in candy red
Mike - the only ties I have to GHP are the $$$ ones I have in my bike - lol
Here's a shot of my one - I don't think you have seen it before.
PS: Neil (Subwax) has the largest collection of GHPs I believe.

Again Andy, thats a great looking bike.

There are more Pattys than GHP 24" out there - lol
I'm lucky enough to have a GHP and a Patty.
I'd love to do a white 84 GHP Pro Long one day and a 24"..... and a mini - lol.
Speaking of minis - check out the pic of Tory Bailey in the SuperBMX article - that is the elusive black chrome colour.
Brett (3rdGear) had a set of Star Bars in that colour.
