Ruckus only posts about once every 2.5 years, so forgive him for not being in the loop.

Robinson- my FAVORITE all time old school bmx ride......here is my original Robinson cruiser, I found it after 17 years apart....a love story if there ever was one!


Found this 1983 20" a few weeks ago......I had one of these BITD also.....love it!


Chuck sold Robinson to GT back in 1987. He still ran it for awhile then left. I believe he died a few years ago.
