    I discovered this site the other night and signed up so I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m Greg Friend and I just turned 40 this year.

    I was born & raised in Freehold so Howell was my hometown track where I did most of my racing in the early to mid-80s. I attended the 1981 Bob Haro freestyle show at Bicycle World and competed in an Iron Man Classic or two. I also raced some at Long Branch, Englishtown and a few times in Flemington.

    I still have my bike. It’s a time capsule frozen in time when I stopped BMX racing as I started going to college in 1985. You can see it here: Red Line Pro-Line

    Hey Greg welcome. My sister now lives in Freehold. My only memory of it was having to drive thru its circle to get to the Monmouth NBL track.
    By 81 I raced only ABA and in Sept. moved to California so we probably
    didnt cross paths as it sounds like if you raced in 81 it was probably NBL or WWBMXA.

    You got any of the old WWBMXA newsletters or point standings?

    Yeah, I generally stuck with NBL competition. I don’t have any of the old point standings, flyers or BMX magazines anymore. 🙁

    Glad to still have my bike though as that’s the best part!

    Greg, welcome to the site!

    I scoped out the pic of the Pro-Line, and I have one question, and its really for all the early 80’s dudes on this site:

    How in the world did we race these bikes???? —

    Seriously, love the bike, you are right, its a time capsule for sure. Wish I held onto all my old bikes, but who knew?

    Welcome aboard, and don’t take most of what’s said on here too seriously, except for when we get talking about serious subjects. 8)

    damn, that bike looks like nothing compared to the ones they have now.
