One of the readers of this site recently posted a comment with a picture of a CYC Ames Stormer at a recent get together.

You can view pictures from what looked like 1983 all over again at his bloq.

Thanks for the contributions guys.



May 1975 advertisement

This add shows a second CYC BMX model. Not sure who made this Monoshock. The add doesnt say but I don’t believe CYC was yet making their own bikes. Maybe one of you guys older than dirt may recall what brand this is or one of you willing to do some research. I checked and its NOT a Matthews frame set.


Oldest known CYC BMX advertisement

Posted in 1974, CYC Advertisements on June 10, 2009 by Racer

This magazine advertisement for CYC BMX appeared in the December 1974 issue of Dirt Bike magazine. Its possible that they had in even earlier issues.

WOW advertising BMX almost since day 1 in BMX.  CYC truly a pioneer in BMX.
