~~ SURVIVOR BMX BIKES (1995 & Earlier) ~~



In addition to the above general rules for BOTY 2010, the Survivor Class has other special guidelines as follows:


Bikes eligible for participation in this class are solely: complete survivors - bikes that are just as they were at the cut off date of Dec. 31, 1995. Minor non original and realistic part changes are allowed... such as tires, maybe grips... suppose an otherwise complete survivor was found with all original 25 or 30 year old parts, except a seat that was much later, or something like that. Bringing one or maybe two small accessories back to "era correct alignment with the rest of the build is acceptable. Please don't over do it. Please have integrity and honor the spirit of the survivor class. No refinished (powder/paint/anodizing/chrome etc.) parts and absolutely nothing repopped, i.e. no reproduction pads or stickers.

Any bike in this category ought to have parts that fall in their entirety within a 5 year period of era correctness. In other words... an 80 survivor should have no part later than 85 on it. This provision is made in order to accommodate the fact that people might realistically have kept a bike but added upgrades over the years.



A NOTE ON THE RULE CHANGE IMPLEMENTED IN 2009: At one time, we allowed more latitude with the definition of survivor so that even "survivor builds" were allowed. At this point, we seem to have enough true survivor bikes of great quality that we can drop this concession. Please put "survivor builds" made from all original parts in to the appropriate bike and era class. Duly note the status of your OG parts. The true connoisseurs will no doubt reward you with appreciation.


2010 Addendum:
Life time owners can enter their survivors as long as they meet these conditions:


1) the bike meets all the other criteria of the survivor class
2) the bike has never been entered in the BOTY in previous years
* life time owners will be defined as 20 or more years of ownership for a bike from the 70's or 80's.

This bike was found on Craigs list in Wisconsin USA earlier this year, I was lucky enough to become the recipient.I have changed nothing on this bike aside from the tires and given it a clean up. When Craig (vettefan) posted me about this bike, he kept raving about the condition of it. from the before pics ,which was what I had, it looked pretty rough to me with a lot of oxidisation. it was devided into two packs to post when the first pack got to me, I was shocked to see that what I thought was oxidisation was a nice protective film of oil and dust.

THE ONLY THING THAT HAS BEEN DONE TO THIS BIKE HAS BEEN WITH WINDEX AND A RAG AND A LITTLE WAX TO PROTECT THE PAINT. THERE WAS NO OXALIC, POLISHING, ETC. THE FILM OF OIL AND DUST DID IT'S JOB WELL.

THANK YOU AGAIN CRAIG!

hope you like her..............

1985 Kuwahara Nova Titlist
Heres one to make up the numbers. I have had this bike sometime but havent really made much of a fuss about it. Back in 2006 me and waza cleaned out a local bike shop. While he was crawling through the roof I was digging through this pile of old repairs. Once I dug through to the wall I find a row of 80's bmx and family bikes which had been stored since the 80's but never made the shop floor! To my surprise I found this complete with 20+ years of dust. I bought it home and took pics of it exactly as I found it. All I had to do was install the pedals, pump the tyres up, install a chain and wipe off the dust. The tyres even have the flat spot where they had been sitting all that time!

1986 Haro Master Survivor

The first freestyle bike I ever saw was an 86 Haro Master in Green. I remember it because I had never seen freestyle before, and I was wondering what all those standers were... needless to say, I was amazed, and became obsessed with Haro, and freestyle from then on. Though my heart is with most of the 87/88 freestyle bikes, this was the one that I saw first. Love the wear on the forks near the forkstanders, DK stem Lock, the more rare tapered 86 Haro Bars, and the beautiful Haro Group 1 Cranks. I bought this from its original owner this year, and have kept it pretty much the way I got it. I've only replaced the grips, cables, pedals and brake pads. Very cool 1986 Haro Ramp Riders decal that was put on there in 86 at a contest in Minneapolis. This bike was purchased at a local bike shop in MN, and will stay in MN for the rest of it's life. I'm very proud to own this.

Frame - 86 Haro Master
Fork - 86 Haro Master
Fork Standers - 86 Haro Master (Anlun)
Bars - 86 Haro (Tapered)
Stem - Haro Group 1
Headset - Hatta
Headset Lock - DK
Levers - Dia Compe Tech 5
Grips - Odi Signature (Ron Wilkerson)
Brakes - Dia Compe Nippon
Seat - Dominator
Seat Post - 85/86 Haro Fluted
Seat Post Clamp - Dia Compe Hinged (Stamped DC)
Cranks - Haro Group 1 (Original Decals)
Pedals - Victor (Replaced, when I received the bike, it had no pedals)
Wheels - Ukai made Peregrine 48's (Stamped Ukai)
Tires - Tioga Comp ST

1977 JMC SHORT #JMC 5 AC

My name is Adam Cox, I have owned this bike since it was new and I was present when it was fabricated at JM cyclery in April of 1977 by Jim Melton, Larry Barker(Prodyne) and George Aerheart. It is the 5th JMC production frame built. The serial # was stamped on the bottom bracket by me after the welding was completed. The "AC" that follows the "JMC 5" are my initials.

The hand brush lettering on the frame and number plate were done by Jim Melton's son, Dave "Pete" Melton (R.I.P.) in the summer of 1977 while he was out for a visit. He also did a helmet and visor for me and Harry Leary at the time. We had our own "Von Dutch" in house! I still have what's left of the visor, it reads, "PINEAPPLE EXPRESS", I'm Hawaiian....

The forks are Two Wheeler pro forks. They were a gift from Marshall Wheeler prior to being released to the public. In 1977 JMC only produced frames and bike stands. We didn't produce forks until 1978.

The JMC bike stand is the original stand that has always been with this bike.

JMC 5 AC was disassembled and stored by my father in late 1978 when I moved up to a JMC long frame, JMC 21, which I also still have.

The Araya 7B rims, though they appear new, were built by me in 1978. I put 1 race on them before switching to C&G Super Pro's with Bullseye hubs, courtesy of Everything Bicycles.

The Grips and tires are what I originally ran on the bike back in 1977 although they are NOS and were purchased within the last 10 years.

This is the same bike I am racing in my avatar to the left. The shot was taken at La Mirada in 1977. I'm also wearing the Premier helmet and Preston Petty visor that Jim's son painted for me.

This bike is like a best friend or family member to me. It has been with me for 33+ years. It is truely a time machine that represents family, friends, travel and some of the best times and experiences of my life. If only it could talk, the stories it could tell..... :cheers:

Frame: JMC Short #JMC5AC (original paint and decals)
fork: Two Wheeler Pro (JMC didn't make forks at this time)
Bars: FMF gold bars (JMC didn't make bars at this time)
Stem: Superbyke Tuf-Neck 3rd gen.
seat: Unicanitor
Post: 6061 Aluminum tubing. (JMC didn't make posts at this time)
Post clamp: Generic steel
cranks: Shimano Dura-Ace
BB: Teledyne titanium spindle, Sugino cups, Campagnolo balls
pedals: Union
chain ring: Addicks 1st gen.
chain: HKK
Freewheel: Regina
Rims: Araya 7B 1st gen.
Hubs: Campagnolo Record, high flange, track axles.
Spokes: 60/80 gage chrome
Brakes: Dia Compe
Brake pads: Mathauser
Grips: Preston Petty G.P.
Tires: Raleigh Red Dot (JMC secret weapon)
Pads: Orig. vinyl
Stand: JMC Pit Stand (original paint & decals)
Decals: All decals are Original to the bike and stand: 1st gen. JMC chrome shields, 1st gen. JMC/BMX, 1st gen. JM Cyclery chrome shop decals,'77 Mongoose Grand National participant decal, "Don't mess with it" decal(Harry had the X rated version), Orig. Bill Walters Leathers decal on frame pad.(the first team leathers were BW's), 1st gen. LRV prism. My friend Todd Denind rode for LRV and use to slap stickers on my bike when I wasn't looking.....

1st_race_JMC-WSA-1-1.jpg
This shot was taken at Western Sports Arama in '77, it was my first race as a factory rider. Jim's son lettered my name on the front of that helmet weeks before painting the one in my avatar. I still have the helmet that is in this picture and the jersey. My dad layed out the graphics on this helmet and ironically it looks alot like the JMC team helmets that were later the standard.

It is such a nice survivor, that I decided not to wash and polish it previous to B.O.T.Y. . Real 1988 dirt !!!

Schwinn scrambler 36/36

Growing up in a small town in Wisconsin i dreamed of the California sun and bmx tracks. In the summer of 81 i was able to buy a used Schwinn scrambler 36/36 from my neighbor. After riding nothing but broken down huffy's and other crap i was in heaven with the Schwinn. Fast forward to 99, i got the internet and discovered ROOSTbmx.com I still had the old 36/36 and felt i should restore it. Long story short it never happened and i ended up misplacing it. So after years of stingrays and all the bmx i wanted from the heyday i decided to find a very nice survivor 36/36. Much to my suprise it didn't take but one phone call and some small talk with Craig aka "vettefan" who had this in his basement.


So here's my entry, a bone stock Cardinal red 36/36 just like i had back in 81. This thing must never had been ridden. Even has the damn reflectors on it. Bike is bone stock and is presented in it's all og form. It may not be much but means the world to me. My journey from dreaming of California and bmx will come full circle next June when i attend the show in Bellflower

82 Huffy Pro Lightning Nitro
Only the grips and tires have been replaced, as the ones which were on the bike were not correct but had been on the bike for a while. They were replaced with what whould have been originally on the bike. Only the chain and pedals are not original. The chain is an Izumi which was also on the bike. The pedals were also on the bike and are labeled on the end caps, Officially Licensed Product of the National Bicycle League. Everything else is original. Nothing has been refinished, it was only wiped down as I like the patina it has as is.

It was missing the chaingaurd (I wonder why) and would have been near impossible to replace, so a big THANK YOU to Bmx Bandit for hooking me up with it. The chaingaurd is the correct Huffy one which would have been on the bike in 82.

This is the bike I dreamt about as a kid. I remember sitting on it at Kmart, hoping I could take it home. It never happened. I also remember cutting the picture out from the their ad flyer and keeping it, which is likely in my mom’s house somewhere. I just love the look of the bike. The shape of the tubing, the semi-flat finish and decals. The number plate with the bolt through it (go Chargers! lol). And you can never go wrong with the black and gold combo.

I waited a long time for one to come up for sale and was not expecting it in this condition.

Yes, it is a Huffy but it was well equiped, especially for 1982.
The following are a few highlights.
