E.T. on a Kuwahara

Here is a sweet illustration that Bob Haro did way back in 1982 for BMX Plus magazine. Bob was also a featured stunt rider in the movie. He is the one who knocks off the police light as he is riding over the car. Unfortunately, Bob and the other riders were not credited for their work, since they were not SAG members.

Kuwahara E.T. Original Condition

Time to go way back in time, all the way back to 1982. When a short little alien with a glowing finger made Kuwahara a household word. Here is an original unrestored E.T. looptail. It appears to be a Model 3009, also known as the Replica model. It looks like it is in amazing shape, and even still has the original powder that covers the tires.

As listed on eBay. Offered at $6,000.00 starting bid. Item #270588717537

Woody Itson 1986 Hutch Ad

Back in the 80's it was okay to have a mustache and ride an all pink bike. Here is Woody Itson doing his best Magnum, P.I. impersonation, circa 1986. In the backseat of his Porsche is his trademark pink Hutch Trick Star.
