Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New


My '72 Schwinn Stingray was great but wanted a true BMX frame and fork to handle all the abuse of daily riding at "The Track."

Just the basics and man what a indestructible ride!  What is exceptional about this is that the rear dropouts are perfect!  Many Squarebacks are beat but the original quality/finish has lasted after 40 years!

I soon found out that in racing you need a lighter bike unless you are two to three years larger than your age.  Retired the bike in 1978 for racing and moved on toward my "Torker Kid" career coined by my local bike shop that I rode to nearly everyday.  Thanks Dennis for all your help in my BMX days!
