What year of bike do you consider is still interesting to show off? Is there a maximum year for the moment or does it depend on which kind BMX it is?
Powers BMX: Like I said, I love the '70s BMX, and American made stuff, like Standard, S&M but we are going to be showing off as much BMX stuff as possible! We will have all BMX things here!
Has the collecting of the bikes resulted in a new BMX community of bike collectors for you?
Powers BMX: Yeah it has for sure! It’s awesome.
Name three BMX Bike collectors that you admire?
1) All the non show bike collectors!
2) All the collectors who ride their bikes
3) Non flippers!
Do you have regular man-cave nights when you work on BMX bikes for the museum?
Powers BMX: It’s nothing regular yet, we just mess with it when I can!
Do you have BMX museum visits planned for school classes or do you do special BMX Museum tours for those who are interested to learn more about the history of BMX?
Powers BMX: Yeah I would love to do that! Right now and always will be free to enjoy!
When people want to donate their old bike to the museum, where can they contact you?
