Not for Sale-Sorry from the Owner
This is my bike. There is a story to be told about how I still have it.
Anyone know it? Well, I’d like to add that this bike and my friends
custom JMC where stolen form us while we were inside playing those great
arcade games around 1982. I got the idea to follow the tire tracks the
accused made while riding up the side of the road in the sand like
deposits. Yes, Tioga Comp III tire tracks where followed about 7 miles
into the city. We spotted them jokers riding our bikes around and
flagged down a cop who kindly retrieved them for us.
As the years flew by and my interests turned to girls and 1969 Firebirds, I sold my bike at my fathers bike ship where I worked everyday after school. Many years later a friend of mine brought the bike into our bike shop and said he got it at a garage sale. I calmly and happily said, “Hey thats my bike” so I bought it back from him and now I just look at it from time to time and think about how lucky I really am. Its a miracle from God. Believe.
Remember Wes BMX in New York? The owners son and I are friends. More to follow…
That’s a 1967 Camero Convertible in the lower picture.
