1979 Webco Replica. I came to this frame here on BMX Society through member, A_Falcs27. I used as many of the parts that came with the frame as I could. Baring one ebay purchase the rest of the parts used came from of my ever thinning parts stash. I’ve always had a sentimental spot when it comes to Webco. The company headquarters was in my home town so I knew about them early in my experience. In my quest to take some good pictures of this bike I went so far as to take all of the accompanying pics for my entry in front of 218 Main Street in Venice Ca. Webco’s former street address. The location is currently occupied by a gallery selling vintage modern furniture and re purposed furniture as art. Enjoy!
