1995 Holmes

I built this bike last year using a few old parts I've had since the early 90's and some others I had laying around the garage. It's got a 1" threaded front end, one of the last of the old boys. When I found the frame in San Diego a few years back it was built up complete with Landing Gear forks, generic 3pc cranks, Castillo Bars and a bunch of crappy parts. I bought the whole thing for 100 bucks. First thing I did was strip all the parts off and sell the forks to get my 100 bucks back. The Pitchforks I used I've had since 94, along with the ti seatpost and top half of the Pozi Stop. This bike rules. She's fast and loose.

1994 Widowmaker

This is my 94 Widowmaker, it's my only bike I'm a total bitch over. I found the frame and fork in near perfect condition years back after what seamed like a lifelong hunt. At the time, there were only 4 or so known to me and the guys on the vintage forums, a few more have surfaced since. For the build I was super picky about what parts to use and how I thought it should look, so I ended up taking my time. I actually rode it brakeless and with newer Comp III tires for over a year before I finally tracked down the 901's and skinwalls. It's pretty much finished now though I may find better pedals someday. And some uncut Gay Bars would be nice. More detailed/clickable photos below. Dig it!

Interview with Chris Moeller

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, things have been busy. Click HERE to read the full-length groovy new interview OS-BMX did with Chris Moeller that's focused on the early days. Look close for my in depth, highly journalistic questions dealing strictly with S&M's pornographic connections.

I stole this photo from Moeller. It just rules too much. It's the inside of Alex Leech's 60's delivery van from around 91. Bike, frame rack, and Bell helmet. Dig it. According to Alex, he lived in this Van on Keith Treanor's driveway. It was also used to move frames around from the painters and chromers.

I'm thinkin' by the CS bridges that those are early Holmes' for you guys to drool over.

Press Action!

Thanks to Eric at 23mag for kickin' so much ass! I now have the cover shot that goes with the article. BMXAction Nov. 1987 

In case you didn't know, 23mag is the ultimate BMX archive. You can pretty much search any company, rider, video, mag,...and find all kinds of info. I've used it too many times.

I'm not sure, but this could be the first time S&M was mentioned in a mag. This is news from BMXAction September 1987. I haven't found anything in previous issues, and starting here is where things seem to get going. Tomorrow I'll post another cool piece of press that came two months later.
