About Me

Heya all ... a little about me...

i was born in 1968 and as a young fella  (about 10 i got in to the new craze at the time bmx...)

my first pushie that i built from parts i brought making money doing a morning paper round was a old dragster reborn with bmx forks,bars and seat... i thought at the time it was the ducks nuts...

i very soon decided that this bike wasnt going to cut it!

my first real bmx was a brand new super max with blue tuff 2s...

i made heaps of changes to the supermax once i started racing..

i was a member of the vbmxa and the nba in the early to mid 80s

as i got better at racing i was aproched by my local bike shop and asked if i wanted to ride for them (bundoora cycles)

i ended up having and racingalot of different brands of bikes and was always given the top parts from the shop

what more could i ask for free parts just for riding my bike and whereing the shops colors...lol

out of all the bikes had at the time my all time was my 81 torker (loved that bike ) there was just somthing magic about it ...

now days im all grown up and run my own screenprinting and signage bisuness

i have a wife (jodie)that has stuck by me for the last 20 years .. also a 18yo son (taylor)

unfortunley hes not into bmx,s like the old man. he went to the dark side and is a skater...(lol)

he does very well with his skating and has picked up a few very good sponsers like v energy drinks and core skate boards just to name a few

he has also competed in the junor x-games a few years ago aswell... he has just recently perfected a full backflip on a skatboard and plans to pull it out when comp season starts up again this year...
