Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New
Late 1980 DG introduced a limited run of 16" Pit bike frame and forks as this became a trend with manufactures to promote their products. Windy Osborn helped DG with her beautiful pose on Byron Friday's Pit.
With the sale of DG to Ed Smith I'm not sure on the exact numbers made but keep hearing 50 or less.
The bike features NOS DG handlebars, NOS DG Grips, DG pads, rare DG seat post, and super rare NOS Haro DG Factory Plate in the bag.
The rest of the parts are all era correct.
