Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Brett Jackson: Yes, absolutely. I’m still green in the BMX collecting hobby. About 2 1/2 years ago I was looking for bikes for my twins. One wanted a BMX, one a mountain bike. While searching for a good quality bmx, all of the old feelings of riding came flooding back. I ended up buying my son a 2016 Redline and myself a 1998(?) GT. I quickly learned the difference between old school, mid school, etc. I became determined to build a few old BMX bikes for my kids to ride. I found a couple great local guys into the hobby that turned me onto great Facebook groups. I was hooked.
What kind of bikes do you focus on? Brett Jackson: I focus on bikes from late '70-s to mid '80-s. I do not like to go beyond 1985. (I have one or two beyond '85). I love both race and freestyle. I started collecting freestyle, and fell in love with so many race bikes.
