After a short break and now gradually delving back into a hobby I truly love - mainly 1970’s American BMX - I could not help but to re-revisit dozens of historical Topics held within the treasures of this website. One of my favourite topics ever discussed was always the near mythical OG factory finish on the Ashtabula cranks, forks and stems from the original forge. The whole history of the town itself is fascinating... The story of one of America’s worst train derailments in history is also part of Ashtabula, OH. That horrific history and subsequent cover ups and suicides, is the stuff of novels! I kid you not...

All of the above notwithstanding, when I think of the top authority in these parts - meaning these forums, Topics and Websites - who seems to have cleared the most smoke from one of the best subjects in vintage BMX collecting - Ashtabula - is Brian aka Sodbuster. Thank you Sir. I am re-aquatinting myself with all your vital contributions and becoming more and more grateful.
