40 Years of BMX - Long Beach Display

So Friday night we went to a little show over in the Bixby Knolls area of Long Beach. A show celebrating 40 Years of BMX! SWEEEET!! I grew up around this stuff, but most of what I got to see was in magazines like Freestylin' and BMX Plus! So seeing this display brought back a ton of memories and it was way cool to see a lot of the bikes and people that made this sport so big! They even had a display for the move "RAD" and were showing it in their little mini-movie theater. Good stuff!

I took way too many pictures to post here, and I'm straying pretty far from topic, so I'll keep it short. For those of you that would like to see the display before it packs up, it will be shown again on November 13th. More information can be found on their website here ---> 40 Years of BMX

Tons of great displays, a ton of super rare bikes, and you might even run into Bob Haro, Scot Breithaupt or maybe even have a chat with "Cru". HA!

This is such a cool collection of old school BMX pics - the early Mongoose with box handlebars and 'motomags' - wow some serious nostalgia there
