The below pictures are from 1979. They are used courtesy of Bob Osborn. Please do not republish without his expressed written permission. All pictures used on all my sites were done so only after contacting him.

The color photo is of Mike and a bunch of the other fastest young guns in BMX at the time.  Because of space limitiations most of the picture is not used. The other race action shot shows mike at a NBA National at SaddlebackPark in Orange, CA.

1979 Ames Stormer advertisement

Posted in 1979, Ames Stormer on March 4, 2009 by Racer

This full color advertisement appeared in the July 1979 issue of  “Bicycle Motocross Action”. Shows that the 79 Stormer used the same decals as the 78 Stormer but had a killer new parts group. Shows a Panther model. So now we know the Panther looks like it debuted in 79.
