Im trying to find out info on a company that was based out of Selinsgrove, PA called Arsonist. They made bmx race frames. Anyone got any info? Maybe the name of person associated with this company. Any help would be great. thanks!

Sorry cant help but I remember them. I was out of SE PA for a few years.
The frames had a front gusset if I remember with some holes.
I think they may have also made plates. Underground for sure. Cant remember era but thinking it was very late 80s or 90s.

The bike shop was Gary's Bike Shop, they started in Tharptown, PA, then to Shamokin, PA, then finally to Shamokin Dam(outside of Selinsgrove). It was Gary's son who raced and they started making Arsonist frame and forks. He was a few years older then me, if I remember correctly he only raced NBL races. I'll ask a friend of mine who knew him a little better and try to get a name for you.

Small world. When I was a kid my dad took me to Shamokin for the Pennsylvania State Trap Shooting Championships. He won his class.

I use to race some Arsonist dudes at York and Bensalem. I only raced ABA. Can't remember their names. Donnie was one of them he had blond hair. He had a black Arsonist with like neon yellow decals.

What kind of info are you looking for? I have all the info that you may need. Also there is a Facebook page with some info under ARSONIST BMX.
