I have not heard anyone mention Kuwahara (spelling?) I had one in the 80's and it was the so light. Now I have a 24" Specialized Vegas that I cruse every now and again.


Wasn't Kuwahara the featured bike on the ET Extra Terrestrial movie?


I forget which pro's rode in that movie.


Hmm...I recall Bob Haro and Mike Buff doing work on it. Haro said he was the one who knocked the gumball off the cop car.

I raced BMX in the early 80's and before then I built my own bmx bike out of a Schwinn Stingray. I had Ashtabula forks cranks and neck, and I have pics of me jumping it. Very Happy When I got my first Mongoose, in 1979, I raced it and got third in my first race, still have the trophy. We raced La Mirada Regional Park, Azuza BMX track behind the Eagle Lodge, Norco/Corona, and some place way down by Del Mar. Cool I eventually moved up to a full race JMC, try to find one of those these days, big bucks! Very Happy

These pie plates are what you raced with if you didn't have a plate or your number was taken.

This track official's book is awesome with some stuff inside that many folks have never seen.

These are very early bikes I built. The top and right hand pics are a girls bike with double down tubes but I put a cross tube on it and a pad. The left pic is a Stingray with a few mods.

Red, none of your photos are showing up. Could be my confuzer, but if not, I'd love to see them.

I rode freestyle through the 80's. Always on a Haro once I stepped up from dept store bikes. (Murray and Huffy)

Had two Haro FSX's, then a Haro Master. I was never very good, but we had a lot of fun. Friend had Redlines and GT's mostly. I still have some of my old BMX and Freestyle mags. I have a bunch of old Dirtwheels mags, too.

Oh well I guess they got deleted because I had them uploaded on The Samba and that must be illegal. I did just get a nice retro bike to ride but I can't put that pic here either so you can't see it but it is amazing.

Yes, if you posted non-VW stuff in the VW Gallery here it most likely got removed.

Feel free to repost them on imgur.com or another source and edit your post above with the new links
