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

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.

Andy,

Do you have ties to GHP or just like 'em a lot?

Nice to see some new info on GHP. I had no idea how limited the 1992 production was. These are from an 83 or 84 edition of Super BMX. Charlie Williams dumped Hutch but he stuck with the Aerospeeds.

In case anyone missed these first go around, it seemed appropriate to repost here in this thread.

Greg ,

Cool history in greater detail , thanks :ThumbsUp: .

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 .

Can any of you guys (Greg Hill, or Lee) tell me about this fork???

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. :)

Hmm... I don't think it's an Elf fork and definitely not something of the newer variety. It's not a GHP fork either.

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?)

Matt, that's one of the other Hill models (looks like the decal on the Top Tube says "Street Legal"). Those forks are not original to that frame. The Replica frame looked EXACTLY like a GHP. Take a look on the Museum for the Greg Hill/GHP Replicas. You'll see the forks I'm talking about (no close-ups though).

The Tange forks on the CP frames were aero jobs.

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.

Andy, thats beautiful. Seeing how high the Patterson 24 is going on the bay right now, my focus has shifted to getting a GHP. They were about equal in my head back when. We'll have to see. Its not like any one is more affordable than the other....lol. Unfortunately I live in a very small town that doesn't really have any BMX roots so my access to getting this stuff is primarily ebay. Which makes you all my competitors.....lol. One day I shall find my Patterson or GHP.
Again Andy, thats a great looking bike.

Mike

Cheers.

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.
