BMX Style Bike- 2000s

BMX Style Bike- 2000s

On loan from Aaron Amstutz

This is a custom bicycle put together by Aaron Amstutz. “At the time it was new, this bike was considered a street/park/dirt jumping setup. It was not intended to be raced, however adding a padset, number plate, and removing the pegs is all that is needed to race. Even then, at over 30 lbs, it would be a disadvantage. The bike was built more for brute strength.”
