1980’s BMX Down Under Book

Well it’s Friday, which means BMX time. This Friday I’m going back in time and down to Australia. I can’t remember when and where I got this book, but it’s been on my shelf a long time. I have always wanted to share it here, on the website, as it’s a little gem of BMX history. Printed in 1981, it chronicles the arrival of BMX in Australia (sometime in 1977). It’s great to look at this far down the line and to see the progression and feel the roots of the sport, not just in Australia, but the world over. It describes the then basic form of BMX in words and pictures, as with things from the past, it can seem naive, but at the time I would’ve drooled over such books, wanting to know more and see what it looked like – we just didn’t know as kids in some tiny neighbourhood, hungry for understanding – sometimes it didn’t make sense and today, well BMX is insane! I will always love BMX as a fan. More pictures below.
