  1. NOS kuwahara grips $125 posted or pick up Melbourne
  2. New to BMX restoration but not new to BMX. MY first bike was a Toowoomba Bicycle CO. Cobra from my olds for chrissy, I remember sponge grips, coaster brake, red, gold rims, heavy and rubbish compared to what I wanted.... so now with age I can indulge.... I found this on Gumtree within 3 hours of it posted - gambled, ad said Kuwahara- good solid bike $XX... top bloke agreed to send it, e-go courier did well, now here. Best of all it shipped with what he said was an almost dead Madison MXDR - and I will post that tomorrow when I make it up , cause she is still pumpin... he packed them really well , but axles and nuts were poking out - - no damage , I was definitely dubious, cynical and doubtful over getting a K for nada - what do you think? I cannot find a SERIAL number match on the websites through the museum up to 1984 - any ideas?
  3. Hi all. After a long sabbatical I've got got my bike back and running. The reason is my daughter is turning 3 soon and I want to start taking her to the BMX track for some balance bike racing, so I figure I needed to be able to join her. Back in the day, I rode a cheap bike over many home made jumps and somehow never did myself any major injuries. Then when I started highschool, everyone had Haro's with the bike racks full of edges and a few group 1's. I pestered the parents long enough and almost talked my way into a diamondback, but in the end I had a new Orion Freestyle for $220, which was much less than the DB or any haro. This lasted a while, with constant slow upgrades as I could afford it. I cracked the bottom tube at one point and my old man welded it back up. It survived well. I scored a chrome mongoose frame for $5 at a garage sale and rode that for a while and I think I sold it to a mate and kept riding the orion. Eventually I saved up enough cash to buy a kuwahara frame cheap from my cousin. I had no idea about the brand, but it looked like a haro and was cooler than my orion so I was happy. It was a bare frame, except for a pair of 990's on the rear. I built it up with the parts I had and continued to upgrade parts, mostly scored 2nd hand from other kids at school. 48 spoke rims, better brakes etc and the bike generally got heavier and heavier. Sometime through uni, it got left sitting for a long time in my fathers shed. The chain got pilfered by my father to fix his mower which didn't help. Fast forward 10 or more years and my father cleaned out his shed and dropped a few things to my place, including my bike. It now has a chain, and I can't work out how I ever managed to ride it, but I'm sure I'll get back into it after a while. I've discovered recently the bike is a Kuwahara Bravo, most likely an 87. The parts are all early 90's stuff like tech 77 levers, acs boa front brake, gyro, torker forks, peregrine disk, peregrine 48 rims (I think) triple traps, home made pegs etc. There are a few things I want to change like I was never able to to in the day, like 3 piece cranks. I also want to swap the one odyssey pitbull lever for another tech 77 one as the odyssey one sucks. I also wouldn't say no to putting a pair of tuffs on it (I had some blue skyways at one point) Yellow tuffs and a splatter spray over the satin black powdercoat would bring the old school back. I've joined up here as there seems to be a fair chunk of not so young guys with cool stuff I like drooling over.

  22. Well, I have finally had a chance to get on and say G'day I joined this forum to meet like minded people and learn as much as possible to help with my father and son project- Restoring Old School BMX's... I live in the Redlands Council in Brisbane, and have not ridden a bmx since I was in Uni, 24 years ago... With 3 boys growing up behind a bmx track , it was only a matter of time before I would start a project with them and start restoring bmx's... I have got a few bikes on the go, with 2 potential old school bikes I would ride myself... I am still looking for quality bikes to do up, so if you have something that is pre 1990 (preferrrably pre 1980) that you have not time to do up, then please let me know... Cash paid, no matter what condition the bike is... I rode a green Madison in the day and would love another... I was never able to afford a Redline, Mongoose, Diamond Back, Hutch, PK Ripper, Moosegoose or Kuwahara so I would love to get my hands on some of those. Glockster and Ant have already helped me with a mongoose Expert & Unkown Twin Tube Freestyler... So thanks guys, you are both great people... Love to meet up on the next months Ride in Brisbane or Gold Coast. My boys are keen to come along too and show off their new rides when they are built. Cheers all, John
