  1. Supermax five hole Og pads.
  2. Supermax CrMo serials dont really show the date they were made and look like they just show the order they were built. As most of the parts on these bikes were date stamped if all the owners of original or survivor bikes posted the frame serial and dates of the original parts it came with we can see if there are any patterns to the serial number and the date. It could also show when the bikes started and finished being made/sold. Of course we dont know when the Tange, Nitto and Shimano parts were ordered from the factories to be fitted but it will be interesting to see any patterns. Date codes for parts are below http://www.vintage-trek.com/component_dates.htm#nitto Copy and use the below template to make it easy to read. Herse mine. Frame # 2177 Stem O.R = April 1981 Fork 1H = August 1981 Chainring FD = April 1981 Hubs FD FG = April July 1981

  6. Hi all, I am building a Malvern Star Maxi. The Takagi cranks should be black and I only have a few chrome sets. I am going to get a set coated along with the rat traps, my question is are they meant to be satin or gloss? I was thinking satin but unsure of the original finish. Thanks, Shane.
  7. Hi guys, I thought I would build something different from my Crossriders yet still Aussie so purchased this Maxi frame and forks from a fellow member. It's in great condition, not mint but most of the parts I have are of a similar quality. The thing is most of its black, I like the black but apart from the stickers and pads so far it's black. I have a black Nitto MX1 and black Alps bars coming, I already have the black Tange clamp and a mint set of Black coaster Tuffs with original type tyres (black sidewalls). The Takagi cranks I was going to blacken like the originals but I do have a nos gold chainguard for it. As pictured I do have a set of yellow coaster Tuffs that need a good clean up or was thinking of doing a gold seat clamp and the top of the MX1 in gold anno as well. I'd be happy if it looks fairly factory correct and still need to find some black rat traps and a rear reflector, got some OGK grips....they are black. What do you think?

  10. Seen as there has been a lot of banging on about OG and Survivor stuff lately, I thought I'd pull the old Supermax down off the wall and give it a clean and get some fresh pics (only from the iPad again)... My first ever BMX and first race bike was a Supermax, and I managed to keep it until I was about 19ish when I lent it to a friends little brother to get to school on and unfortunately it got stolen from the school (little fckers)... So when I got back into the BMX thing again I went on the hunt for one.. I managed to pick up a totally OG one a couple of years back now, that some spoilt kid got and basically only rode it around the block and didn't want it so it got chucked under the house and that's where it stayed in all its glory until I manged to get it... I didn't actually get it from the original owner though, picked it up from the bloke who did.. This thing is totally OG right down to the chain, bell, tyres and tubes.. The rear tyre is no longer rideable but does hold air, and the OG steel stem tubes aren't in the tyres atm.. And all I did was use some elbow grease on this thing and cleaned it all up, nothing has been redone... The tuffs were an absolute nightmare!! Anyways here a pic of ,I've and my brother's when we were kids: And here's how this one looked when I got it: And this is how she is now:
  11. Thought that I would show the picks of my latest build. Wanted a Christmas project and came up with this idea. I never owned one, though I had a dragster before my first BMX. I have always thought that these looked so cool, the humble beginnings of BMX. and this is how it started.
  12. Hi Guys and Gals. I have picked up this classic from a guy at work. He has had it since new, was silver with red candy forks when new. I think I'll be taking it back to its former colour ways. Still has most of its OG parts. Enjoy.
  13. Hi All I just picked up this old Malvern Star girls dragster that I'm starting to restore. 1. Can anyone ID it? 2. Can anyone give me tips on how to remove the down crown from the forks so I can get the frame sand blasted and powder coated? Thanks for your help!

  15. 1986 Healing Freestyler - my grail. Healing was Malvern Star's sister company in NZ (they released the Healing SuperMax across the Tasman). This is the build I've been dreaming of ever since I got back into OS BMX. A little background info: I have no tales of track glory, State Champs, trophies or skate park heroics like so many here on OzBMX. My beginnings in BMX were humble, as was the end. I was a country kid, grew up on 1700acres in hill-country NZ, a total tom-boy. I loved mud, tools, Transformers, building stuff, sport, Weetbix and generally being outdoors. I fell in love with BMX when my folks gave me a Healing Freestyler for my 8th birthday in Dec '86. From that point on the bike and I were inseparable. Together with some kids from neighbouring properties we built a killer track in our front paddock and would spend hours and hours on the weekends and after school doing time trials and building mad jumps (and landing in prickle bushes, ponds and various other hazards). I'm pretty sure we had no idea that things called skate parks existed in other parts of the world, we were content, and as long as we could ride, we were free! I spent every moment of my spare time between for the next 5 or 6 years either riding or tinkering with the bike. My poor Mum had a rake permanently at the ready as I made a habit of carving up her lovely pea-gravel drive-way repeatedly, for years, in Guinness World Record breaking attempts at the longest coaster brake skid. Sadly, some time in my teens, I sold the Freestyler to 'upgrade' and join in my friends who had all moved on to MTB. I convinced myself it was a sacrifice I had to make, just part of growing up. BIG IDIOT! :'( Riding just wasn't the same after that. But I guess it takes time to learn that growing up is a foolish aspiration... haha I'm pretty sure that move in the pic below is called the "WTF?" ...and I have no idea what I was thinking with that handlebar gradient (!?)... but how hardcore is that coaster arm swinging free? haha. Looking at the chrome forks, the pic must have been taken after 'the incident' when my Dad reversed over my bike in his old Holden Belmont and irrecoverably bent the OG forks with the threaded peg holes. So <fast forward>... In mid 2011 I started to dream about a Healing Freestyler 're-incarnation' build, a tribute to my OG bike but with some custom additions, some of my favourite freestyle parts from classics like the Streetbeat and the Performer. I started to sketch.... ...scanned in the sketch... ...and, knowing that I wanted to stick with the original white and green colour combo as a base for the build, and that I was prepared to sacrifice the spokey dokies for Tuff IIs, I started to mess around with colour options for wheelset and tyres... ...and settled on this simple yet minty fresh combo: At this point I had no idea how I was going to get hold of frame and forks. Only a limited number were produced BITD (less than 100 as legend has it) and I only new of 6 still in existence, in NZ), I decided to work on the good ol' Field of Dreams theory... 'if you build it, they will come' It's suprising how many things you can 'build' for a build without actually.... building it. I started by putting together my ideal custom parts list: (OG spec in blue, custom additions in red) Frame & forks - 1986 Healing Freestyler, powdered white Bars - Skyway EZ Bars Gen 1, powdered white Grips - AME green CAM grips or green/white F1 style Stem - Forklifter with Pots Mod, green Headset - Tioga MX101, green Bottom Bracket - Odyssey Dynatron 24tpi Wheelset - Sealed Bearing Skyway Tuff II with coaster, white Tyres - Duro Freestyle skinwalls 20x1.75, green Sprocket - Tri-Wing (Performer style) 44t, green Cranks - SR Sakae or Sugino OPC, 165mm, chrome Chain - YBN or KMC 1/8", white Pedals - Wellgo Alloy 1/2", DX style, green Seat - Viscount Dominator, green **integral to the build Seat post - CrMo layback 22.2, powdered white Seat Post clamp - Suntour copy, green Front Brake - Odyssey 980 Freestyler for pott's mod Front Brake Lever - Dia Compe Tech 6, green Brake Cable - Hi-Tech, green Pegs - OG Healing threaded fork pegs (white, lemon squeezer design) ....and moved on to drawing up artwork for a decal set, combining my memory of the colours from my OG bike with specs and measurements garnered from pics of a survivor on the Museum... (with an extra Lix-style sticker for luck, you gotta have wings!) ...then turned my hand to parts acquisition, scouring dark corners of the interwebz, making my way through the list over the next 6 months. I found some killer bargains, a lot of NOS going for less because of shelf wear, which didn't bother me as I was going to be re-finishing most of them in a custom green anyway (except for the Skyway Gen 1 EZ Bars which would be powdered white with f/f). The MX101 headset is one of the coolest of the little mouthfuls of old-school awesomenes that I've ever held in my hands.
  16. G'day everyone, it's great to be back into BMX again after all these years. I recently got the bug bigtime again from one of my closest friends when I went over to his house for a visit and went into his shed and was instantly in awe of his partialy restored 1979 mongoose motomag. Thru subsequent visits to his man cave I've been helping him to restore it and now im in the process of buying something old school to restore for myself. I've just purchased a 1981 Red Devil and a early 90's freestyle goose. Im looking forward to learning all over again :-) cheers.
  17. Enjoy, these are some rare beauties and priced to sell. http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/adrilake/m.html?item=111107008530&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  18. * Essay ensues - Read at your own risk * :madness: Ello all fellow pedal pushers, my name is Grant and I'm located on the Central Coast. Having been doing some reading on this here forum you call home, I recognised some familiar usernames. Some of you may know me from my previous car escapades through JDMST, SilNSW and NSCC etc. I've grown up around all things automotive and the old man has had a RWD Ford Capri GT, Alfa GTV and Alfa Spyder along with a Nissan Z33 350Z in my time around, along with a number of cousins with modified cars it was inevitable I'd go down the same path. I've owned a couple of Nissan S14s and earlier in the piece purchased dads 350Z from him. - S14a street project from the mid 2000's - S14, battered and abused trackhack (aka fun machine) But I made the choice to invest some funds and the project S14 was sold off to part fund this decision, which led to me taking more than an interest in cycling due to increased fitness levels, the desire to push myself harder, I can't be defected by the hwy patrol like the last project car and best of all, it's reduced costs! So some background and context, I've been riding casually since being a tiny-tot (read whenever I needed to get somewhere whilst the parents weren't around and school holidays. Where I grew up, there was no nearby public transport. Then I hit my early twenties, started working a desk job and gave up most sports. Big mistake! I started packing on the weight and lost all form of fitness. It was at this time I got invited to join my employer at the times bike team for the 90KM Sydney to Wollongong annual fund raiser. So I started training on my Big W special, the bike was HEAVY, felt like I was riding through soft sand due to the rolling resistance but somehow managed to keep up with the rest of the team on their road bikes and hybrids (probably due to the medium age of the team being mid 50 year olds). That was back in 2008, I've since done '09 and 2011 rides also. Somewhere along the way I decided to purchase something more suited to hard surfaces and abit faster paced than the Big W special. It was suggested by my LBS that a hybrid would be a good compromise due to me being accustomed to a MTB. So I ended up purchasing a Mongoose Crossway as a starting point. This would of been my bike currently but met an untimely end when training for last years MS ride I was riding hard up an incline, head down pedalling hard, when to my surprise, a 4x4 pajero pulled across two lanes of traffic and into my path to enter a driveway. The bike didn't in any fair nearly as well as myself and the driver was found to be DUI, not simply 'not seeing' me as claimed. A mate was good enough to lend me a bike for the MS ride and then following a lengthy wait for payout, I was back in the hunt for a bike to get into it. I decided that I had a dedicated (admittedly old) Cannondale Super V400 dually for MTB duites and that I wanted something that I could ride longer distances not only comfortably but also at a faster rate of knots for longer. Previously my average speed across fairly flat roads over 30+km distances was roughly 24KM/h on the Mongoose hybrid. This time it was going to be a drop-bar road bike or bust, the search began! >
  19. Hey everyone, hows things in ure part of Oz? Hopefully not too affected by the wild summer weather n fires! Stay safe if you are! Its been great to have discovered this site, seems like a great community of people with a rad interest! And great to see good info and pics about Australian specific BMX's, that are largely ignored by international sites. My first real new bike when I was a kid was a smokin hot, SuperMax 2........ Deep Candy Red frame with all gold annodised parts, gold Araya Rims and hubs, had it for years, painted it many colours (dad was a spray painter)..... sold it way too cheap, loaded with cool parts, when I was 19, licensed with a car and partying instead of riding Got into downhill mountain biking later though and have done up several bikes over time.... mountain bikes and dragsters mainly. Anyhoo, as time has gone on, I have ended up with a complete barnfind style, Malvern Star MX1 Dragster style BMX (black with decals), and a second complete one in parts. It is cool as, I've actually taken the BMX style bars off and put ape hangers on it for that Dragster look, but still have the original bars and pads safe! The rims are steel Arayas! V/cool! And my other pride n joy is one of my all time best Op shop scores!!... A sweet as, original condition Speedwell, Sting Mk1 complete!! Unmolested! for only $10. Its yellow with original decals and even the store sticker of the place that sold it, with yellow Skyway tuffs, Tange forks (with decals), original parts and foot brakes. It has one original pad, vinyl with clips, and one 1984 upgrade nylon with velco. It was so hard to keep a straight face when the guy at the Op shop told me $10, I was so ready to pay more for it! I'll get off my butt and take some pics... I aim to track down a frame, forks n parts to rebuild my original Malvern Star SuperMax 2 ..... will keep ya'll posted. cheers from the Deep North Wally
  20. hi all i found this place after ant told me of it at the pushies galore swap meet, where he gave me a huge bargain on some tange tx1200 forks -- thanks ant im probably not going to do any show quality builds just yet, as im more keen on racing, and keeping my daughters on what they think are the coolest rides going (ie: girly town bikes and old school bmx's -- must have tuffs like on bmx bandits) til i went to my 1st swap meet i thought i had a bike problem (20+ different bikes between 3 people) but since peeking into the scene ive realised that it's not a problem until you've got at least 100. that's what the collectors say anyway. the bmx's which are going to stay in the garage are a 88 redline twin tube freestyler which is transport for a 14yo whose only interest in bmx is riding a bike "like nicole kidman's". the redline has yellow cobra tuffs, win stem and vee bars, and looks the part in it's original paint and decals. i recently got hold of an 85 maxi off ebay, and have since put a few decent og bits onto it, including ogk tuffs with repro blue kenda tyres, and dyno bars and stem. it's probably going to be sold to finance a new school race bike. my favourite is what i think is an 87 mongoose californian or expert, picked up from the side of the road. i still can't believe someone threw it out. all it was missing was bars and pedals. it has sugino 3 piece alloy cranks, acs hubs on alloys i can't id, it had beaten up tange tx1200 forks which are now on the redline, and ant's bargain shiny forks are now on it. i added a usabmx stem and cw bars. it's not pretty but all it has to do is go old school racing. sorry about the lack of pics but there's not a lot to appreciate, show-wise thanks for reading this novel. if i could, i'd sound an alarm for those of you who've dozed off face 1st on the keyboard
  21. Built this for the Adelaide cruise this week end its turned out a lot better than i thought it would and thought Id share, thanks for looking
