I got a mention, ah yes Teapot, me the Dale Winton look alike.

My collection of good stuff is a DG, Scorpion, 12 Torker, 3 late 70's gooses, MCS cruiser, Quadangle Freestyler and an SE Trick Master, doesn't include the stuff I have got rid of....Hutch Trickstar & Prostar, numerous GT's, Schwinn Scramblers, Floval Flyer, Skyway TA & Streetbeats, Diamond Backs and the dreaded Raleigh Burner.

As for Birmingham wheels bikes, Stechford Cycles was building frames back in the day and they built the TRM freestyle frame and if I remember rightly they made the Wheels race frames. As for Steve Wilson frames, they looked like a Moosegoose with triple clamp forks.

Birmingham wheels frames were made in a workshop at the wheels project run by Chris Lawther, Pat and Trev Robinson were part of the production team in the early days. The workshop was on site by the small track.Frames were of dubious quality, especially the small ones, Dean Bateson snapped many.
Stechford Cycles had a team run by Jon Turnbull, whos old man owned the shop with Steve Fletcher. They had a small team who in '85 used the TRM frames, made by a neighbour of mine, in Erdington. A couple of my mates rode for them and one of them, Derrick Owens, won the Brits at Derby in '85 on it. The year after they rode for wheels and bombed at the worlds in slough.
I do remember buying a Steve Wilson from someone at Redditch club in '83, maybe Steve Harris(?). It had a euro BB and what seemed like a 8 inch head tube. Double butted 531 tubing though. Wobbled a bit through the bombhole.

If any of you guys would like to see your bikes in an old school museum then go to radbmx.co.uk and contact myself, 80srombloke or ORB with a rundown of parts and a picture and we will submit them .

Nice to see that Kellog knows his stuff, be interested to know how !

Don't forget Scott Beaumont and Pat Robinson, Beth Salt and many many more that I could mention, I spent a long time on the bus with some of those smelly feet. Of course Raggy was another piece of Birmingham Wheels History, he always seemed to be in the lead and then end up in a heap ! RESPECT

Reason why is that Mouzers Maraurders was my first club in 83'. I couldnt count the amount of journeys from Chelmsley to wheels I made on the train from 83' to 86', must have been millions. My old man run the Chelmsley Eagles and if I remember rightly your dad gave plenty of advice early on to get it going. like lots of kids back then spent many saturday on the small track. I raced with Raggy and I must say he lived up to his nick name better than most.

My name is Jason Fennell, mates with Derrick Owens and Steve Bell who rode for wheels in 85/86 I think. I do remember you and Dean Bateson being the little guys who had all the campag gear and sew ups on your bikes. I also remember doing rebel runs over to the euro track and getting a few runs at the moonies before the security guys usually threw us off.
