Tom Christopher – Factory CYC

Posted in 1979, CYC Team Riders on December 16, 2009 by Racer

Wow I never knew CYC had sponsored Tom Christopher. My earliest memories of him were with Tioga. How could CYC miss the boat and not have the 4X rider featured in their advertisements in 1979? Maik Puschert sent me these two scans from the March 1980 issue of “Minicycle/BMX Action”. My guess is they are from a late 1979 race. It is a Malibu Grand Prix track. The NBA sanctioned races at this franchise all across America.


1977 Stormer Survivor

Posted in 1977 on December 16, 2009 by Racer

Got these pictures from Keith Villa showing off his  classic 1977 CYC Stormer. He pointed out that it still had the original Skyway Tuff Wheel 1’s. The forks are rare chromed and stamped Ashtabula. The stem is a black stamped Ashtabula. The decals are in pretty good shape for a 1977.  Kieth bought this bike in 1977. So it is the truest form of survivor. Parts list also includes KKT pedals, Oakley grips and Nankang MX tires.
