I've posted these long ago. These photos are from late 1978. I received them a couple years ago. They were in the hands of Bob Graves. Bob, along with his son and daughter, started and built the Bike Gallery into what it is today.
Look at that inventory. I loved working there and I thank Bob and Jay for being a better sponsor than most factories. They let me just build a bike. Or call JT, Bell or Vans and order a new uniform. We changed bikes often as it sold product. What a kick!
Personally, I dig the Red Torker Bike Bike Frame with forward Drop outs, MX II in Silver with early Redline stem/bars, DG Helmet, the mix of 77 and 78 DG frames. I bet Jimmy (and his Mom) can smell the rubber in these pictures!

those were the days! I was 8 years old in 78 but i remember a my mouth hitting the floor when I went into a shop similar to that one called Bolen's bike world. Those pics brings back memories of a time when all you thought about was bikes. Wait a second... thats all i think about now!
