    I just went back to my childhood... thanks! I had a Sting Ray with a plastic gas tank on it. I WISH I had pictures of that.

    Nice job!

    I only wish my brother and I still had the old pics of us jumping that bike on the track all us neighborhood kids built on the Fully Loop back in the day. I loved riding that place.

    well, I'm not sure about how "old school" this is, but for me it goes back. I started riding in 96' when I was 13. Here is a picture of my first bike - an Australian made Living-X "team ozziroo". I knew the owner of the company,... one of the founders of Gateway Computers who sold his stock and moved on in the early 90's. He hooked me up with a few bikes and drug me to the races all over the midwest.

    ... this next one is of my first SoBe team bike back in 98-99 or so. Gotta love the "afterburner fade"

    [​IMG]

    and here's me on it at the 98' Norba National in Redwing MN... at the ripe age of 15. :wave:

    These are some of the oldest I have. I lost a bunch of film pics moving from Fl to GA back in the early 90's I'd love to have back.

    Somewhere in N. GA around the year 2k. The bike in the foreground was a friends Old skool Turner XCE with a 4" Zocchi Mr T dual crown fork. Other bikes up top were a Bullit, 1st gen Specy Big Hit and my Thermo plastic GT.

    These are from the early sixties.....

    That's me on the back, ready to prowl the neighborhood looking for some sweet jumps :lol:

    You gotta love that 88 degree headtube angle :?:

    [​IMG]

    OK, this isn't bike related, but should be good for some self-deprecating humor. Of course I am the goofiest looking one in the pic, so I shouldn't even have to point out which one that is... #-o

    Aww hell, just found these on the old computer. Not a lot of action when you get caught in a late spring snow storm somewhere in the Laguna Mountains....

    Man, I loved that bike.
