I own a few Boss bikes but this one is special to me because I built this when I was 16 years old working at McDonald’s. I remember taking my two weeks pay check to buy these boss cranks. This bike is still 90% all original from day one. The main reason I started riding a boss is because of the late great Cecil John’s. He was my BMX hero. There were other guys that influenced me to ride a boss names like the legend Darwin Griffin, Greg Romero and Terry “MR. T” Tenette.  Someone ask me to sell him this bike and my response was I’m taking this one to the Grave with me. I still have my pants and Jersey that I raced with on the same bike. The other jersey in the picture was Cecil’s personal Jersey that was given to me by his brother Ozzy Johns. R.I.P Cecil Johns.

  1. when i was young(12-13-14, im 48 now) my moms couldnt afford to buy me a brand name bikes. barely could afford a flea market bike. i only heard of all these legend bikes, never seen one. when i was 16, i was already in a car, so i lost interest in bikes because of cars. grown now, i just started getting back into bikes earlier this year. i can finally say i own a Boss Bike- a newer model- 29 inch, #7 built. These Boss bikes are straight up Legends, this one on this article is a Legend. Glad to see a true OG survivor!!
