    dex - that sounds like a helluva ride!!! Wow I haven't heard of Golden Fleece servos since I was a real little tacker!!!
    then they became Caltex right? Shoot those were the days.... no computers, x box, PS3 or mobiles - just get on the
    bike and ride to your mates then to the milk bar (we call them deli here in Perth) and 20c goes in the pinnies or spacies
    machine with a bag of lollies and a glass bottle of coke - happy days!!!! bring back the 80s rgds G Man.

      I had one of these (still have) Yamaha Moto-Bikes when I was a kid. I got mine in about 1974 and painted it 'burnt orange' (don't laugh, it WAS cool back then. So was 'mission brown') in the late seventies. One day it will be restored

              Havent seen this thread before! Memories! My first was a Maddison. Grey/silver frame and blue OGK mags. I was so proud of it till my brother took it to the shops and it got knocked off! Second was a Ralliegh? Chrome frame, araya alloys etc. Frame tubes were oval shape so I turned it into a Skyway replica. Tuff 2 mags and lots of yellow alloy bits. Sold it for a carton! Dickhead!!! Currently have a kuwahara and some other old school thing. Will get pics soon.

                Some nice rides there.
                Who had a
                PK ripper or
                SE quadangle or
                JMC

                My Dad swooped my JMC for a car for me.
                That was a surprise.

                  Maybe he thought if you keep racing BMX he might not get grandkids.

                          tinman - there is/was a dragster/bmx gang in perth some years ago.
                          they rode every Friday night from Maccas Sth Perth into the city/northbridge
                          stopped for a coldie and rode back again.

                          you will also find some of them at the classic car show every year at Whiteman Park
                          if they still go.

                          one dude in the gang live near me - I got his mobile still - he got a backyard FULL
                          and I mean f n full of old school bikes just piled up for parts + a rainy day.

                          g man.
