That sweet dg bmx 26" cruiser again, on show @ the gt event - as old school as it gets. love the rl 401 flight cranks and kkt lightning pedals. sharing the history again ... dg racing was originally a motorcycle parts company only. it gets its initials from the founders, dan and gary. garys son kevin was both in mx and bmx so dg also got into bmx in 1975. in 1976 they hired chuck robinson (later of robinson racing) to run the team. he picked up some of the biggest names in bmx at the time including jeff bottema and stu thomsen. a year later he left to run the lrv team. steve skibel whos son steve skibel jr. rode for dg, then took over as team manager. dg moved around and was one of the fastest growing bmx companies. eventually though they sold the company to the green duck corporation. it appears that in 1981 dg racing produced its last bmx bikes. #bmx #oldschool #oldschoolbmx #dgbmx #vintagebmx #1 #bmxstreet #bmxracing #bmxrace #instabmx #bmxpro #bmxlegend #bmxer #bmx4life #chromoly #4130 #bike #rad #ride #mx #motocross #bmxbike #1970s #1980s #california #vintagebike #rad

Team diamondback's harry leary, aka "turbo" and "capt. kirk" chrisco with bmx action, duke it out for the inside line while testing the db "super viper" in early 1985. pic credit to steve giberson. total weight of the bike was 25lbs 7oz. the frame had a high tensile steel rear triangle and a chromoly front triangle. the fork was chromoly. the complete bike sold for $179.95 - inexpensive compared to others at the time. #diamondbackbmx #db #diamondback #bmx #oldschool #oldschoolbmx #1 #chromoly #rad #bmxvintage #vintagebmx #vans #oakley #oakleybike #mx #dirt #mx #bmxracing #bmxrace #viper #diamondbackviper #harryleary #harrylearyturbo #jtracing #bmxpro #bmxlegend

Awesome powerlite 24" cruiser at the gary turner event. breakdown of powerlite's history from erick weinstetter - thank you. powerlite got its start as a bike shop. peddlepower was a bike shop located on east grove ave. in orange, ca. the bike shop was run by steve rink. being close to such a early and famous track helped launch the shop into sponsoring a team. early riders included “the red baron” himself , dennis dain. dennis went on to fame racing for redline and cooks bros. in 1977 it appears they released their first production bike, the sr. the decals used the bike shops name, peddlepower. late in 78 or early 79 this would change and the decals would read powerlite. by the early 1980’s bmx was booming. powerlite was also growing. they sponsored bmx action test rider kirk chrisco and another legend tommy brackens. the product line included full uniforms and custom helmets, bikes and even numberplates. not sure what happened next. it appears freestyle took over the pages of the bmx magazines and the hardcore race companies that didn’t adapt quickly enough, were left out in the cold. while races where still drawing a thousand racers and freestyle events just a few, the magazine coverage was mostly freestyle. powerlite and robinson seemed to get lost in the transition and where bought by gt bicycles around 1986 or 87. if anyone knows the exact date please let me know and i will edit this. - erick weinstetter #bmx #powerlite #bmxlife #bmxstreet #bmxracing #bmxrace #bmxpro #bmxlegend #chromoly #gt #gtbmx #robinson #robinsonbmx #oldschool #oldschoolbmx #vintagebmx #4130 #ride #rad #california #usa #socal #california #bmxer #1980s #bmxbike #cruiser #bmxcruiser

Classic old-school 80's torker print ad. from l-r: richie anderson, craig bark, willie huebner & tommy brackens. some history via the web...the torker name was created by johnson engineering in fullerton, ca in 1977 for a bmx bike frame. the first haro bikes were made by torker. in 1982, torker let go bob haro when he introduced his own line of bmx racing pants. in 1984, the torker bicycle company went bankrupt, and seattle bike supply purchased the name. bmx bikes with the torker name were made from the late 1970s into the 2000s. torker's product line expanded to include beach cruisers, tandem bikes and even unicycles. reader's digest nominated torker unicycles as "america's 100 best" for 2006, and torker was awarded best of 2006 in the december issue of seattle magazine. seattle bike supply was acquired by accell in 2006. bmx team: torker bmx factory sponsored racing team, included such riders as: - mike miranda - richie anderson - tommy brackens - clint miller - eddy king - matt hadan - steve veltman - mike king - cheri elliott - kelly mcdougal - jason jenson - craig bark - willie huebner #bmx #torker #rad #1980s #vintagebmx #bmxrace #torkerbmx #80s #chromoly #oldschool #oldschoolbmx #bmxlife #bmxmuseum #bmxracing #bmxlegend #bmxfreestyle #freestyle #classic #bmxbike #madeintheusa #vintage #vintagebike #bmxpro #1 #mx
