I had a one off titan freestyle bike built by Ken Burleson in 83. My family and his were very close at the time. Man I wish I still had it.
Also, there was one rebel factory mini built by Ken that Brock Bruce still has. (his dad owned rebel) It was built to specs on the rebel factory mini frame I was racing at the time. In fact contrary to popular belief, rebel did not even have a mini frame until 83. I rode for the factory team from 81-83 and running a gt frame with rebel decals. Interesting history
I think Brock said there was more than one of those ti rebels. didn't know Ken made them. makes sense.
Eben has a freestyle mini too.. His was made around the same time as yours. His was a Blacklite. Does it resemble the one I posted above?
I just found some video of the first mention of Blacklite at the '82 Winternationals. Merle Menninga was announcing, mentioned Blacklite in a couple of races, and says something like," I've never heard of them."
I tried posting on here, but it doesn't work. It works ok on the FB Society page. Funny thing about it is one of the riders is on a mini Blazer and has what looks like a GT jersey on.
More than a few factory riders were riding different decals on their other brand frames. The manufacturers had to keep their brand out on the track until the new models or modifications were made.
Blacklite and Blazer were closer than I knew
