  1. Great blog, I just added you to my links. I love Total BMX cause I grew up in the South Bay only knowing the local west coast pubs. So when I open up a copy of TotalBMX it’s all new to me, I get all excited like I’m 12 years old again!! I’ve been scanning the issues I have in my collection and always looking for more. Do you know exactly what years it was published for?

    • Thanks for the nice words about the site. I used to have most of the old ToTal BMXs. I had my magazine collection including every PLUS, Action and most NBA, NBL and ABA papers stolen in South New Jersey in the mid 90s. I was at the race featured on the cover of the first issue. An indoor race in Philly. Not sure when it went out but I wwould guess it lasted from 80-82 or 83

  2. I remember you spending hours jumping your BMX bike in the rear of my apartment building in Budd Lake. Looks like all that practice payed off.
