Hello all,
How cool is this!
A place where I can flash back on better times.
Let me start off by saying that I am a OG from back in the day of mud and burms and killer heavy tank bikes!
I started racing back in 1973 when nobody and I mean nobody here in Ottawa even was aware of BMX.
I had to travel across to the U.S every second week with my uncle to race.
I had my first bike a shield mono shock suspension bike was the thing to have! Heavy Heavy and I almost forgot dam heavy! I raced for 10 years I believe 1983 and I won the 4th place finnals trophy at the EBA Can-Am world championship.
I remember the trophy was so big I had to take it apart to fit it into the car.
Durring my BMX years I raced independant and then latter raced for JJ cycle out of Kingston and finished my final years with a co-sponcership with Skyway racing U.S.A and my Skyway T/A BMX with graphite rims. i had people ask me all the time if I was Andy patterson.
Those days are gone, but I am so happy to see that BMX is still alive!
Always happy to talk BMX.
Wayne.

I'm 46 years old. I think my racing days are over, but I still have my 1973 shields mono shock bike I fully restored and I am working on another bike as we speak. I would like to see a local old school BMX parking lot meet and greet showing off our past choice bike or bikes of the time and BBQ,beer type get together. I still have my trophies in a box at my home. I also thought it would be great to start a restoration parts "junk yard" of sorts to help out fellow collectors restore the bikes.[LINK TO IMAGE][/img]

Racing Days Over?????? WHAT???? Why not get into the NBL 45-49 year old Cruiser Class? At our home track, we have two guy's in the 50 and over Cruiser Class...one of them is in his 60's. I think you could handle it.

Funny how that sort of rear suspension design is still used today on bikes like the Ellsworth MTB! Granted they are much lighter and more functional but hey, you have the bike that probably started it all!
