Name:  Ed Chester

Occupation: Graphic Designer

Years Collecting:
back in the game since August 09

Interests:  my fam / BMX / music  / making beats / sci-fi / rolling around & co-cking about

Dislikes: celery / religion / inaction / politicians

Favourite BMX: My Subrosa DTT Club Homeboy rider :-)

Favourite Old School BMX Brand:
Zima, TNT, Auburn, 2hip and WAL :-)

Favourite quotes: 'We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing"

---------------------------------------------------------

My first bike, a Puch Invader... loved it.





My Skyway phase... couldn't afford one so I had to do my best with the Puch ;-)



Heres my final BITD ride... DP Firebird Freestyler GL Plus - the only photo I have. Sold it complete in '88 for £125 - brought it back 4 years later after it had been RAPED... did a little resto to take it to Cov. where it got nicked in a week  :( >:( :knuppel2:



In the 90's I had a GT Performer for a while, then a gold Haro Shredder - which I sold to buy a pram :coolsmiley:



Got back into the game August 09... riding more now than I have for 25 years  :angel:
Loving the regular private sessions with the 'Usual Suspects' off of RADBMX @ The Boardroom Skatepark in Leicester

...and now at the TRM1 Skatepark in Melton ... lovin this pic  :smitten:



---------------------------------------------------

Got back into BMX with a restoration job on this DP Firebird Freestyler Ltd Ed GL Plus - number 171, recovered from my brother-in-laws cellar looking like this...



looked like this for a while ... with Star Wars AT-AT Driver colourway ;-)

Resto thread here... http://www.radbmx.co.uk/forum/index.php'topic=100022.msg990421#msg990421



finally settled on ...
