A while back , I scanned a few old favorites and posted them on vintagebmx.com. Marty Winchester kindly offered to scan all my old school pics and put them on disc , thanks Marty !

Wow Pinky lots of memories there, tight quicksilver shorts, white socks with slip on vans.
Gee I was wondering the other day about John Cowling the guy was pure power. Great photos of Andy Robinson I did not often get past that Pro Sight bike of his but use to battle with Phil Billinghurst, yes you are right he use to make me laugh in the pits.
Steve Munyard my future bro in law still races road/mtb cross country and downhill and pulls out his BMX now and again.

Hey Ollos , I also race downhill and caught up with Steve a few years back , we hadn't seen eachother since the bmx days. Since then I've seen him and Jane at mtb races regularly , although this season I noticed he's not racing DH. Me neither , recovering from a collarbone ! Hope to catch up with them again soon. Probably best not to tell him I posted the tight shorts pics on the net !
Holy moly ! Hows it going Jamie ? Sorry about the mis spelling , its been a long time ! You probably don't remember me , I used to hang at Knox mostly , rode with Tim , Tom and Andy a bit as well as the other local crew.
I remember going with you and your brother to some trails near your house in Wantirna , about the same time I took those pics.
Yep still riding, have a Kona Stinky that I go bush on a couple of times a week and a Staats Cruiser I've just built up thats begging to be raced, looking to try my hand once I get back from the USA middle February
