Does it hurt to sell bikes you've worked on for so long?
Henry Sarria: Actually, never sold any of my bikes. I've given away a few to friends, but never really sold them. Maybe a trade for something.
Can you name 3 collectors that you respect?
Henry Sarria: Man, I don't know, I just have friends who love bikes, skateboards, surfboards, snowboards, guns, I don't see them as collectors because they actually use the stuff they have, too many to mention.
What products are a great help when you find an old rusty historical piece of shit bike that needs to shine again?
Henry Sarria: Jasco methyl chloride based paint remover, they also make a rust remover as well.
Do you have a man-cave where your bikes are displayed?
Henry Sarria: No man cave, I live in an apartment, some of my bikes, along w/ my wife's bikes, are in the apartment, some locked in the rec room just outside our door. I also have a couple of bikes in my office & yes, they're all used.
What's a bike (part) you have been looking for but haven't been able to locate?
Henry Sarria: The last time I looked for a part, it was for a 1970's Matthews double clamp stem & luckily, found 1 in a BMX swap meet. I'm not particularly picky, so anything will work.
Where can people reach you when they have that part available?
Henry Sarria: No need to get a hold of me, I'll find it.
Thanks to: Everyone who has ever ridden BMX & especially those who were there from the very beginning. We're the oddballs that the "new breed" seems to not understand. Also, thanks to my wife Kim for putting up w/ my shenanigans on a bike. She's an angel.
