After releasing the chrome version of the 30 Year anniversary Supercross BMX SX250 back in January , Bill Ryan drops a complete SX250 in black gloss!!! This bike looks sick and it’s super limited with only 10 available!! Better hop on this one quick!!
The Black Beauty…. only a few people will understand the significance of why we did the limited edition complete #sx250 in Black, they won’t understand why we only built 10, but the true fans know that when Brent Shoup called me to say that the first one was ready, and we drove over to pick it up, the welds were still warm, and my room mate , partner in crime and best bud at the time Todd Anderson and I spray painted it Black so we could build it up and ride, and ride all night long we did. The next morning when Billy Griggs came by the shop to check it out and give it a ride and said that it “rode like his bike” we knew it was right and we had to move forward. We couldn’t afford to do a full production run the first time out, we wanted to, we really did, but we couldn’t, so we built 10.
So, when I decided we were doing these limited edition completes, we wanted to do it right and have a few meanings tied into things.
I sure wish we had that original prototype that Brent Shoup welded up for us, unfortunately, while Todd and I were living in a super shady apartment in Mission Hills ( right down the street from the old BMX Plus! Magazine offices ) someone smashed out the rear hatch window of Todd’s old Honda Accord while he had it parked in front of the stairs one night . The car was running I might add as he ran home to grab something real quick, and was out of the car for no more than 5 minutes, he probably had to use the bathroom before he headed to Dawn‘s house ( his wife ) .
I can guarantee the thief had no idea what he was taking, or who knows, maybe he did, but I know Todd was super bummed because he had to miss shows with Danny Hubbard and Eddie Fiola in the morning .
I hope the thief enjoyed it.
So if you ever see a non serialized 6 bar Supercross Sx250 in the Mission Hills area, give us a call…
