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.


Hotfoots came decorated in either Hotfoot or Repco decals with multiple colour and style variations of each.

A classic decal set, these have made their way onto both HiTen and Team models across all years. I am not sure whether that 24" Hottie is real or not but it is blessed with what looks like original decals. I also believe the decals on the earlier Team are wrong.

Wanski from OzBMX has artwork for these decals and may assist in getting some printed for you or providing artwork.

I think that these decals only came on the '81 / '82 Team model and even then in silver prismatic material only. The variations shown are custom made decals by ProSixtyFive and others. The blue is particularly striking especially on a white frame with blue accessories.

Lixy has prepared these decals from a sample taken from one of Mr.Hotfoot's bikes. Normally displayed on the seat tube of an '82 Team, this little decal will be 50mm x 38mm when printed. Its the little details like this that complete a bike..

You can order these decals by contacting Lixy at her site, LixBMX.

Lixy has prepared both the HiTensile and Chrome Molybendum steel decals for '84 / '85 X-Gusset and Team models respectively. These brightly coloured decals are normally found on the frame's seat tube.

Finally, Lixy has prepared a decal for the Repco Cycle Company seal that also adorns the seat tube of '84 / '85 HiTen and Team models.
