Truly odd's Astubula is off the hook, almost looks like military, the most coolest finish ever. That is a winner ....

The FMF is nuts. But then again, it is exactly what you'd expect from Broke's builds.

:bravo:

Great bikes so far!

What's really getting me stoked right now is...

Broke's FMF and GBoy....TrulyOdd's Ashtabula (plus it's #227 which makes me want to call it Jacke'e)....Shawn's 26" Champions...COASTY's MX dragster retro....the Mini Champion.....Joe's blue SE....I haven't got passed those categories yet.

It's gonna be tough voting this year!

When is Larock gonna drop a 70's BMX bomb and crash the website?!?! :power.of.suggestion:

The RRS, Nomura "under the house", the Hutch survivor, and Pat's Profile 24 are all killin' it for me.

I'm hoping to get some pictures taken this weekend and should have a couple posted up this weekend.

And RyanPatridge, I agree, where's Larock? I'm eager to see what he's been up to this year, too. :Cool_LikeThat:

SE666/Pat - it would be great to see better pics of the experimental Phil hubs on your 26" DG. What exactly made them so special? from the pics it looks like the front hub has a special connection the flange? no pics of the rear though. From the pic of the front hub it looks kind of similar to the wheelchair hubs....no?

Just a thought, due to the large interest in here for 70's 20 inch bmx'rs, wouldn't it make sense to split it up either 75" and eralier, then 76 thru 79? Or maybe heavy duty (astubula, a&a, webco) versus light racers (fmf, g-boy, champion, etc)?
Anybody with me??

Yes they were modified wheel chair hubs and were first gen for bmx bicycles maybe 1977? I would have to ask the products guy steve again for the entire story. I brought them there to have the bearings serviced and the allen tubes that go through the center in the rear hub replaced cause it was shot. He bearly got it finished in time for the June show. Apparently, an early prototype of the first gen hub.

My answer to this would be no. Of the three bikes you cite as examples two of them would fall into the '76 and later catagory anyway. Plus ther isn't enough intrest in the pre 1975 stuff, as far fetched as that sounds it's true. As I write this there are 11 entries in the 1979 and older class. 10 of them are 1976 and newer. My A&A is the only one so far that is not. I would be a shoe in if the class was split but I don't care to get a win that way. But that's just me. Posted Image

When I check out the bikes in the competition, I pick the ones I would like to have for myself. (Hmm, maybe I should make stupid offers?)

I am really digging the red mongoose. This is one of my favorite bikes from bitd even though I was never a mongoose guy. Remember Bobby Encinas holding up the blue one in the magazines back then? With those sweet aluminum shimano cranks, 7bs in silver. Now that is just a clean bike. I love the candy with all the silver any components. Plus the black mongoose suede seat. Very cool.

The very early motomag is also an obvious choice in the survivor class, but I think there are some people who are waiting for the last minute to drop the hammer in that class. But that bike is the best one so far, in my very humble opinion.

In the pre-79 class I also very much dig the Rampar that is a replica of Toby Henderson's bike and I am very privvy to the perfect Webco restoration, the blue one in there. That bike is all me, I love that blue color and the original parts all with non-drilled brake bridge and AAA restoration make it very cool.

It is going to be tough voting this year and the pre-79 class is completely out of control.

So enough of my worthless opinion, would like to hear what other guys think...

****
just editing my post to say that I just checked out the 80-87 class and there is not one bike there that I wouldn't like to have !!!

OK, I guess the split up I was thinking was really the light weight race bikes, versus the heavy duty Femco rim/moto mag bikes,as they seem to me to be 2 different animals. (I know, their all basically BMX machines) But, I felt I needed to at least suggest it. So its all good. Like I said, just a suggestion. Its all very cool, and I am not complaining at all, just trying to help. Thanks for the opportuniy that it is. As its all in fun... Good show...

I agree, I look at which bike to vote for much the same way. At a bike show when I'm trying to decide which bike I should vote for I try and look for the bike I'd be willing to trade my own. I also like to think of which bike I would choose if someone offered to let me pick out any one bike to take home with me for free. Either way though, it's still going to be a difficult choice. It always takes me by surprise just how many cool and rare bikes show up for the society's BOTY.
