Early 70's Motocross and BMX

In the early 70's the fast growing popular sport of motocross racing and bicycle riding paralleled and a new sport emerged. They called it BMX.

Most of the images you see in this set were captured with various cameras, developed and printed by me back in the early to late 1970's. My primary camera back then was a Minolta SRT-102 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens I bought at the Sears Camera Dept. My film of choice was Kodak Tri-X Pan 35mm at ASA 800.

Digital reproduction; I use a Nikon Coolscan V ED to scan the negs and slides and Photoshop to post process.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look.
