I still have this beauty.

All original chrome and decals, and in very good nick considering it was built in 1979.

One of a very few companies that still make just BMX stuff!

I used to race a Hutch cruiser & my dad raced a Thruster Tri-power cruiser. Also had a Pro-neck National Pro , awesome chrome. Remember the Brennan's having a factory smoke chrome GT pro.

A Badd cruiser in crome.
Voted best cruiser in snap mag in 1999.
Was on my way to winning the worlds in 2004 on it, when things went Badd.
Only one in Britain.

This is rare only because of the serial number....

It's the earliest known USA made Skyway T/A, with a serial number of 0000003

This is an '83 Candy Blue National Pro Long. Rare because it was blue from the factory (most were chrome) and there aren't so many Long versions out there. Not many over in the UK either. Also, I purchased this frame directly from Bill Stonebraker, the ex-NP Team rider and this was one of his team bikes and came with prototype, undrilled forks.

This is probably the rarest one I own... almost finished building it now.

'83 Birmingham WHEELS Expert in original chrome and with a NOS padset (pads sourced by a friend from the owner of the Dutch arm of the WHEELS race team).

Birmingham WHEELS Mini. One of only two known at the minute (and I also own the other one which is an ex-Team WHEELS frame set).

I've got a 1979 thruster vanishing point which is going to be started to be rebuilt come the new year and either a rechrome or a lick of paint (don't know what to do yet) will on the frame as theres no corrosion on on it :mrgreen:

I have a birmingham wheels cruiser frame and forks. Seeing some of the cool pics here, was wondering if it's possible to get the frame decals from anywhere nowadays. Also does anyone know where it's also possible to get some wilson decals for my wilson cruiser? I have all my race bikes/frames from bitd as well as race gear but i'm a little out of touch with current day old school set up etc....
