At this moment, do you wish you had started collecting earlier?
Shad Johnson: No, not really. I would have probably just had stuff come up missing like that Ozone frame did if it was earlier.
Do you feel there is a need for BMX products to survive for history's sake?
Shad Johnson: Yes i do. I wish we had a better or a more unifying group on saving and preserving BMX history. I have been real excited about the preservation of certain pros' bikes and footage in the past 5 years.
When you started riding what bike was the dream bike for you?
Shad Johnson: 1986 GT Performer in blue. I'm still trying to track one down. I sell every GT performer I get because they aren't the one!
Do you have that bike in your collection today?
Shad Johnson: Unfortunately no.
Do you have decent mechanical skills?
Shad Johnson: Yup!
What products are a great help when you find an old rusty historical piece of shit bike that needs to shine again?
Shad Johnson: White vinegar, PB Blast, I try not to get mine too shiny. I want them to look like the would have when you were riding 'em years ago.
How often do you look on eBay/Craigslist/BMX Museum to shop for old BMX stuff?
Shad Johnson: I honestly don't look too much. A lot of it finds me. I do enjoy BMX Museum though. I feel like it's the most to the point site.
Do you always have room for "one more bike"?
Shad Johnson: Yes!
What's a bike (part) you have been looking for but haven't been able to locate?
Shad Johnson: 1989 GT Performer in Blue, Bully 2, Hardcroe Machine works seatguts, and an Ozone.
Where can people reach you when they have that part available?
