Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Michael James: I had the last bike I competed on a 1987 GT pro freestyle tour, that was just how I rode it, all mismatched parts & such. Back then we concentrated on what worked & did not break. I saw a flier for an Old school BMX show at the Recyclery in Portland, Oregon. Took my '87 Kuwahara Bravo Pro frame with me to check it out. So cool to see all the old school rides! Talked to the curator of the event Paul & we became best friends. We started doing the show together & this year will be the 14th year!
