Repco Hotfoot

While researching information for my '85 Team Hotfoot and up-coming '82 Team Hotfoot build, I got so sick of finding information then losing it again that I started copying images of bikes, parts and advertising material into a single place. To assist others, I have reproduced this information over the following pages .. most of the information can be found on OzBMX and BMXMuseum and I am not pretending that this informtion will replace either of these valuable resources.

Please browse through all of the material I have collected:

If you have any Hotfoot information or photos, please forward them to me and I will add them to the site. I am especially interested in brochures and advertisements as these are most valuable when restoring bikes back to their original glory.

1982 (?) Giant Catalogue

This Japanese (or is it Taiwanese?) catalogue was discovered by Volcano on a Tamiya RC site. On offer are two variants of the HiTen X-Gusset (with either Tuffs and coaster brakes or spoked wheels and front / rear caliper brakes) and two CrMo 'Professional' models similar to our '82 Team model.

The top of the range 360 Super Pro is equipped with Dia Compe MX1000 brakes, Dia Compe Tech 2 lever, Suntour Stem, Sugino cranks and chainring as well as a ghastly silver seat! The red version, simply named the GMX-360 is a much nicer colour scheme with a colour coded alloy seat post and matching red seat.

    Extra Info / Links  Have you ever wished that you could go back in time to the late 70's and early 80's when you could walk into a newsagency and see the latest issues of BMX Action, BMX Plus, Super BMX and Freestylin' in the racks as crisp and clean as the day they were printed? If you said yes to any of these questions, this is the site for you ..

       Vintage Mongoose  Anyone who is interested in Mongooses (Mongeese?) has probably already found this site. When I was restoring my Motomag, I found this site invaluable for information and reproductions decals and grips. Warren, who is behind this site, is a local who is passionate - no obsessive - about the Mongoose brand and it shows.
