He came up and started talking to me about my OM Flyer, and we got to chatting and I asked his name, and he says, "Danny Hanebrink". I was taken back... told him there were a bunch of us on this site that were big admirer's of his innovative BMX legacy.
Jake... I told him we'd be in touch for an interview. Let's make it happen.
He makes these high end electric bikes now. Wild stuff.

His daughter Amy was just out with her family last Friday night.
They're still very involved in bmx.
I posted this over on gravitybike.com back in April of this year:
So, I'm at the track (Perris) Friday night, practicing and racing $5 cruiser night, when after the second moto, a guy walks up and starts looking at my bike. He starts to ask me some questions about "todays bmx" equipment. As he starts to introduce himself, I stop him, and tell him, "We had lunch together once, after a Hulda Crooks mtb race, probably about 1991. In fact we used see each other all the time at various mtb races."
The man was none other than the legend himself, Dan Hanebrink.
He's busy with another "ahead of his time" racing project:
Bicycle hybrid (pedal and electric motor) supermoto racing.
We also talked about mtb's, 50cc CR racing, and of course, gravity bikes.
The Hutch GPV 1988, Jared rode this in the 2000 X-Games

but he pretty much took the fun out of the GPV thing for everyone. Took it to a level no one else wanted to go.
You mean with this?
Heavily modified Mountain Cycles San Andreas, around $5000 if my memory is good.
