This picture was taken by my dad. I am at Maplehurst Motocross Park in Spring Grove, Il. This Roger D. was my first BMX bike. I traded an old go-cart for it-- 1978:

Same bike, about a year later. The gold alloy bars in the first pic broke in two; The blue ones shown here eventually did the same thing. I tried to find this bike not too long ago but it is long gone:

Same bike; me and my friend gettin' rad:

Cranking a wheelie. I miss this bike. Someday I would like to build a replica of it:

This is an old stingray that I cut the bars down and made into a cafe racer downhill bike (????)'80-'81 or so:

Winthrop Harbor, Il, 1982. Don't you love the manual gate? "Ridersreadypedalsset!"

My first 1st place trophy, same day:

Nashville, '85, doubles @ the end of the first straight. I am on my DY in this picture. I still have about 90% of this bike:

Not bmx, but still cool I guess...The mini jr class, waiting to pull a clothes pin out of a coffee can with a gate number on it. 1980:

Detweiller, Il. State qualifier, 1984. I think this is also my DY. I believe I just got it right before this race. I might be on a JMC long:
(IMG:http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c24/john_n_/stupidpicturesandstuff087.jpg)

L to R: Eric Jensen; Me; Stacy Scott; Aaron Ochner; Kenny Klehr. '85 Detweiller National. I took second to Darwin Griffin:

Way, way more to come when I get them scanned...
