Clear Peregrine.



Here were some Clear Peregrine Mags found recently by a member on the museum, pretty cool piece of history. There was a bit of a debate on these, but nonetheless, I don't think I've ever seen anything like them... pretty cool!

I remember these from back in the day. They were a semi knockoff of the KimTab Snowflake Magnesium wheels I have on my motorcyle. Now that I am restoring old BMX bikes I'm trying to source a decent deal on a set of MotoMag I's.

Just grabbed these... going to clean them up this week, pretty cool.

I've always liked these GT mags, and I've seen some colors, but definitely not enough. Very excited to clean them up, I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but cool nonetheless.

I believe that Halibrand mags were the first custom wheels for cars and the first ones were magnesium. From that time forward many custom wheels were called mags even though they were steel or aluminum. This is just an assumption by me.


The term Mag stuck with us. But actual Mags went away as aluminum wheels where born. The actual push to change the metal was drag cars with Magnesium rims, or "Mags" found the metal would burn in bad fires, so they switched to aluminum. Which proved more durable. Giving birth to early Centerlines, Cragars, etc...

If you enjoy this thread, as some of you clearly do... why the resistance to using the BMX Society server as the photo host?


Ever looked at an old thread and been disappointed by all the holes in the thread where off-site hosted pics once were?

It's one of the saddest things for a forum and thread that has potential for greatness and education.


We ask repeatedly. I'm curious why some of you won't assist with that issue?


damn...i don't get it either. it's been said tons of times and it still keeps happening.
volcano...whats up??? steve has asked nicely.
you go through more trouble clicking on another site to copy links...when you can just upload them here. what's so difficult?

On the rear - a "Shocking Pink" (as coined by Redline & Peregrine) for their magenta colored Peregrine Master mags.

On the front - an OGK star design mag - which was used by Hutch, Torker 2, and Cycle Pro (and a few other companies) on their mid 80's freestyle bikes.

Both mags manufactured by OGK with the same plastic.
They match. :)

(If anyone has a Peregrine front mag in this color - let me know - I wouldn't mind matching my rear :) )

Please dont flame me. Isnt there an upload limit on here? im sure volcano must have gone over it by now as he has contributed a large portion of this thread?

Maybe he has the same problem as me? I have a very slow internet connection that would take 5-10 mins to upload a single pic. (yes i live in the middle of nowhere) All my pics are hosted on my server and are handy from wherever i am in the world. Its also a backup if my pc fails or is stolen. This makes it easy for me to cut and paste a link, plus i can post a link on other forums, without the upload waiting game!

I understand the problem on both sides, but maybe there is another solution?

Maybe there is a server side app for "IP board" that can automatically download outside image links to the host. Let me check with my web programmer.
