October 1979 Timmy Judge cover   2 comments

One of my favorite covers of all time. I learned how to do a one footer immediately after getting this issue. Following the picture of Tim, is of me doing my best Timmy Judge impression just months after this issue appeared. Off a jump made from a pallet and firewood.

March 1979 cover of “Bicycle Motocross Action”   Leave a comment

This issue was special to me. Sal was my favorite racer since meeting him. (See the welcome to this site). In this very issue I had a letter to the editor printed asking about more East Coast coverage. I had several copies of this issue, including one signed by Sal himself. All my magazines were stolen in Malaga, NJ in 1994 when I was part owner of  Hyper Bicycles.

March 1979 first advertisement?   Leave a comment

This may be the first advertisement for Thruster in a BMX Magazine. Not sure if one appeared earlier in a NBL or NBA newspaper.
