Dude just for being able to get into that old uni you deserve

Other than Stu and EK, I'd bet you are the only other old guy around here that can pull that off!

Did I see that right? First race back, on an OS bike, in the 17-18x class...and you beat one! Hey, even if it was just one race, you looked good. Great job!!

Cool!!! I watched it 5 times. You even had the old school helmet thing going on. Love the look of back in the day. You did a great job there. And a good quality vid to boot.

Don't ever show up at our old school reunion and run like that. You might smear us all. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif)

Thanks guys.

I beat the same kid every moto, except the one where I dabbed twice. I blew my second moto bad. I still almost beat him though. Got hit by inches to transfer to the main. I got KILLED in the main, though, when the kids got serious.

I went back on Friday to race and my BB fell apart during practice. I didn't have what I needed to fix it. I'll back soon.

Helmet is a real 1970s Electro I repainted in Torker colors. Jersey is homemade. So is the "Haro" Type 2 plate. Leathers are the real deal--NOS Maxes.

Here's a pic taken by Greg/Huntin4BMX on race night.

This is from Friday practice just before I discovered my BB was loose.

And this is my first prototype, handmade, Haro plate copy with temporary ABA number.

That is way cool. You look fine out - you looked comfortable like you've been back for a while. My son likes the old school stuff except he hates the "Big" number plates. He rode my Cook Bros at the track for fun, but took off the plate. See link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=excUcauBSfU
