Just a few tidbits from Robinson Racings first year, 1978. The advertisement of Gary Renteria is the first ad in a magazine for Robinson it appears. It was in the October 1978 issue of “Bicycle Motocross Action”.  The press release shows the first generation Robinson.  It does not have a R gusset stamp yet. This is the first Robinson frame. The first bike the Factory team was mounted on was LRV frames/forks. Most of the team came from LRV.

The color shot shows Robinsons “Flyin’ Okie” Jeff Ruminer at the 1978 NBA East Coast Nationals at Craigmeur in Green Pond, NJ. All photos on all my fan sites from BMX Action are used with permission from Bob Osborn. Do not republish without his expressed written permission.
