The first Bmx bikes were modified schwinn sting rays etc... The swapped out the seat, handle bars, grips, fork, wheels brakes and tires. The fenders, kickstand, chain guard, reflectors were removed for weight. The kids used to ride the dirt tracks that their parents used for Moto cross in the seventies. The kids tried to mimick all the jumps etc of Moto cross. Gary Turner ( founder of GT bicycles ) was an aircraft And auto racing welder and saw how heavy these old modded schwinn sting rays were and they didn't always hold up well. So he built a bike frame for his son from chromoly tubing. The result was a lighter and stronger bike, and it was faster too. After a while he was making frames for their friends kids. He eventually talked with a local shop owner who began to sell his frames.. Business grew and the had to get a warehouse in Santa Ana and GT bicycles was born. There were many others all over the country witnessing this same situation and developing their own frames, such as cooks bro's or hutch etc.... This was how BMX was born. It was simply a children's version of the already popular Motorcycle Moto-cross. BR

The first bicycle made specifically to mimmick the Motocross riders that early BMX riders were mimmicking was the Yamaha Moto-Bike in 1973.

The first official BMX bike, with the frame design as we know it today, was in late 1974 with the introduction of the Redline Squareback.
