Name: Mike Allred Hometown: Wichita KS, USA Started riding BMX in: First race 1982 Number of bikes in the collection: 16
Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Mike Allred: Yes, the first bike I wanted to find and restore was a 1981 Mongoose Minigoose like my first real race bike
You have quite some unique bikes in your collection. Do you search for uniqueness more than 'just another motomag'? Mike Allred: Often I like to find bikes that the older riders had during my early days of racing since those are the bikes I can ride as an adult.
At this moment, do you wish you had started collecting earlier?
