Filmmaker Todd Huffman of Pipeline Digital Media just published a new mini documentary film on Gary Turner's Monoshock build from the 70s.

Todd reached out and asked for permission to use some footage of a Yamaha Moto-Bike I had at one point and it made its way into the video...my work stand is famous! :bigsmile:

Great historical BMX footage!

Awesome documentary! It's funny, just a few minutes ago I made a comment on the BMX Build Off inspiration pics thread about that drilled monoshock and how I thought it looked homemade and not too pretty, but super functional, and I guess I hit the nail on the head! I had no idea how far back those early BMX bikes went, so it's cool to see the history on them! Thanks for sharing!

Such a killer video. Makes me miss Cali, which is NOT an easy task. Missing my youth on the other hand is a daily occurrence...I actually had an original GT bike. Chrome Frame and fork. I loved that bike. I cracked the frame going for a record (according to the sponsors at the time) bunny hop of just over 4 feet. That led to the purchase of my PK Ripper...which also subsequently cracked while jumping it. What I wouldn't give to have either or both of those bikes now...
