Jim Melton sells the certificates on Ebay. You just give him the serial number of your frame, and he sends you a certificate with the model, serial, original finish, and original customer. Pretty cool, as Jim has the most meticulous records of any 80's BMX manufacturer. And a really nice guy as well.


Wow! That's pretty intense!! Can't buy that sort of history!

great shot guys, good to see peoples faces, because Reece had his Monaro I always thought he'd look like a seventies "sharpie" you know mullett, connie and moccosin kind of guy biggrin.gif

Matt however, I just figured he'd look like that tongue.gif

Hey guys...been off the air for a while...and here's why!
My computer got a virus, well my "anti-virus" software corrupted my files (yes, it's true)...Grrrrr!
It's now fixed & Im back on the interwebbythingy laugh.gif

Also...the engine in my 4x4 blew up! LOL...now chasing another motor for it...ahhh, it never rains - it pours!!!
(maybe I shouldn't have been revving the old Sigma motor to 6000 rpm...hahaha...oops)


....on the positive side of things, I got this nice package in the mail from Adam! (thanks heaps mate) drinks.gif
NOS red kashi seat & DB double dropout forks...very cool.








Also...I stripped my DB mini & gave it an OA bath. Came up trumps!










Good to see u made it to Perth Matt...did u get to go for a cruise in Reece's Monaro?

James - Awesome pics mate! What a holiday u are having.

Some sweet bike pics have been posted...loving the Floval!

Troyboy - Still working on the Sunny Coast Flyer...(lucky that file wasn't lost in the computer shutdown)

Thanks Kurt...i just came across a bunch of old Invada Plates from the big Australia races back in the day...dont know much about them...do you or anyone know what im talking about?
Kurt.
Dont know much about them myself. Some of the guys here will though.

This sort of thing?

COASTY
Dynomite, Invada plates were owned by Chuck May. I used to race with his son Darren in Sydney (Australia) and he now lives in Japan. Invada was quite a large deal and they had there own f/f deal going on too later on.
I think they became DME in the 90's.
Those plates are muchly sought after.
Lets see some pics.

my first build is up for sale (well the frame and fork anyway!) Its had a couple of owners since I sold it

I bought this frame from a guy in QLD back in 2004!
