BH CALIFORNIA
« on: July 13, 2021, 08:23 PM »
Bought this a couple of months ago. Just needed a good strip down, and grease up, plus some  original BH brakes . Great childhood memories of the early Uk BMX days.  Think I might be out on the year it was made. I was thinking late 82/ early 83? Any BH experts out there that can assist on the exact year it would have been made?

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. ......

The closest to yours on the museum is an 87. I'm no expert though. The colour, decals and some parts look the same. Let us know  :daumenhoch:
Low end French does it for me ! 😂

Yes  Damo, the parts look very early eighties. Trying to find a Halfords advertisement. Steve.

    Trying to find a Halfords advertisement.


Here you go Steve......

I only have this picture in my ever growing collection of images due to the Blue Max in the top left, which I would say is an 84 model or perhaps and early 85 model or maybe an 84 model in an 85 advert (happened quite a bit).

Either way your BH California looks identical to the one in the picture so I would date it around 84/85 from this advert mate but my money would be on 84 :daumenhoch:
