Winners were
Mens, Wayne Macca,Jim Oneil,Dean crisp,Glenn O'brien
Chicks,Christine,Melita Downey,Leigh Anne Casper (drool), Kelly Coles.
COASTY
LOL My memory aint that good!
On another note at that meet, Scott Lynch came 5th in the 14 boys and I still race him today!
Mattblack
I have it on video-SBS 30 mins of racing 1982

I still think that pic was latter than the won you are talking about Glenn. That was 82
COASTY
I only looked to find out the name of the meet! I knew the rest though.
They had the best jumping contests at lunchtime at Minto. That 3rd turn was a pain though. Flat turns suck.
Mattblack
Go to page 51 issue 5 (11 boys 10th) ME
rsrichie
later in the life of the track they had a inside run on that third turn with a single woop in it so you could either run wide and go around the flat turn or cut it tight and take the single woop. I remember the table top at the end of that run before turn 4 it seemed huge to me BITD. I slipped the pedal going over it one day and came down on the seat of my old MX and bent it in half, man that hurt my ego with all the lads laughing at me. However it did spell the end of the MX and not long after i got my first real BMX a Raleigh Burner with Tuff 2's.
COASTY
Yeah that tabletop was a great jump. Lunchtime was the best part of the day for me. Very cool track.

Mattblack
Glen Reid Won that year
Dirtboy
Hey richie, you're talking about the "mattahorn" (sp)

Dirtboy
Well, at first i thought the pic was of me (#4) on my supercross azusa easily leading mattblack (#10 nsw ) on his kappa pk24 at this yrs state titles

but looks like i'm wrong and you've all got it right
Damo on the jmc leads checkers on the floval into turn 3 at minto in the 82 crc champions of champions (i think)
rsrichie
Thats the one dirtboy, a woop, what am i on LOL
Jarvi
No Dirtboy, Coastvl had the drool in the right place. I remember she came down to Tassie for a big meeting and was billeted with a friend of mine. Well really his sister 'cause for some reason girls were matched with girls and boys with boys. Go figure.

Don't remember Kelly Coles but if you say she's better then she must have been nice.
rsrichie
jees i must be a bit younger than you guys. Back in 82 i couldnt care less about the chicks i just wanted to build jumps out of old fence posts and milk crates or dig out the side of an embankment to gain the most air i could. Needless to say the old raleigh burner didnt last long but the tuffs are still going.
Jarvi
rsrichie don't get me wrong I was no player, just a looker. Mmmm sounds a bit creepy when I say it that way.
rsrichie
dont worry i just read my post and i sounds like i could of been batting for the other team LOL I can assure you all thats not the case, not that there is anything wrong with that im just........... shut up now richie your digging a hole.

rsrichie
Heres my old number plate from invada. Last time i spoke to Darren he said his dad had some of these ones left over and that he would get me one but ive not spoken to him for a couple of months now.

COASTY
Darren should be living in Japan by now. I know his shop was on ebay a few weeks back. He is also a member of Radbmx in the UK too.
rsrichie
Yeah his shop is still on the market, ive often thought of taking that career change myself, who knows i might, There is a large car park area out the back that would do well for a old school gathering and its not far from Terigal Track ((about 15min) and if the gathering at Terigal doesnt work out the best) or even closer there are some good skate parks.

Hey Richie, I like original plates people owned. I'm not picking on you because I did and everyone did the same.
EG-did you ride a MongooseKuwaharaRedlineGT with a tuf neck, Dia compe brakes, Tange headset and KKT pedals lol
Those Dia compe stickers always end up on the back of plates
rsrichie
yep i rode them all at once it was heavy man so many sponsors so little time. Ah what do you do.
crossriderozzy

Luis:
re: my previous photo's posted....
Tim was a close riding buddy bitd, and a real rad nutcase on a bike heheheheehe.
( i caught up with Tim a few times in recent years at various races).

All pics were taken by me, and back then we only had a '110' pocket camera to use.
There's very few pics of me, and most pics of me always came out blurry or framed wrong, because my folks or friends had no idea about cameras hehehehe.

Marty.
dugga
try this for your next project:

COASTY
Nice vids marty. You were quick out of the gate!
Sorry Reece. I hated colored tires then and...
Jarvi
Nice holeshot Marty.

Re the photos, I wonder how many there are around the world with a headless rider? I've seen a few on here. I missed a whole day's racing worth of photos because Mum's friend forgot to put film in the camera. Guess she had no idea about cameras either.
velocidad
hey Dirtboy superpics back there - are they from the family photo album??

Marty I'm still looking for the dude on a bmx with a ponytail?? cool footage, your lucky to have it.
Mr.BMX
hehehehe, yeh, a LONG time before the ponytail grew hehehehe....damn militant parents... ;-)

As for my footage, it was an uncles 8mm movie cam we borrowed over a few weeks.
Dad filmed a few motos of mine at Eram park (box hill, the holeshot footage) plus a moto at waverly and bayside.

Then a mate filmed my street tricks, and a few laps at the local track jumping etc......
It's only about 5mins footage all up, but stoked to have it....
Mr.BMX
Added 1 more video .....

Enjoy!

KOSY-MOTO
WOW dude thats AWSUM'A!!.. great stuff
Dirtboy
Yeah velocidad, they're pics from the family photo album. i recently grabbed my aunties photo album too which had about another 50 early 80's bmx pics

Nice video Marty....i found about 20 reels of my brothers and i 80 - 83 a couple weeks back. Set up the show with pop corn and all for the kids the other week and the damn hanimex machine wouldn't work......got my eye out for a Eumig atm
Jet Black
Eumig Super 8 film projectors can be a _REAL_ hassle to figure out how to thread the film thru them without the correct models instruction book with it.
Be warned you may find yourself with a useless projector unless it has the instructions when buying an olde Umig.

Not too sure if I still have any super 8 projectors here anymore.....I know I haven't got that damm Umig anymore.

JB
Mr.BMX
Go the hanimex ;-)
Built nicely, and EASY to use ;-)
QuicksilverBMX
I'm just happy to find anything over here!
Todays find!
COASTY
thats a great score Reece. Better than anything I've found lately.
Dirtboy
Bit slow round here so how about some then and now pics?!
