A few months ago I stumbled on backinthedaybmx web page about the HMX-500. What a great resource! The discussion about Mk1 and Mk2 models got me interested. I see an old picture was a MK1 HMX. I had a Mk1 HMX as a kid also in 1980 and never realised they had changed design of the frame for later models. Seemed to be a bit of a revival recently - so thought I'd see if I could find one to restore. Plenty of Mk2's - but do you think I could find a single Mk1 anywhere? No way! These things are just not around anymore. Especially here in Auckland. I never realised Chch was such an old bicycle goldmine. Finally managed to track one down from a young bloke in Wellington. It was a rusty mess but had all the original parts. Restoration is well underway so thought you might like to see what you've got me into. (laughs) Photos Above Cheers DavidAuckland

This is one of the first HMX 500 made. This is so old and so heavy. RMC

This is my HMX 500 brand new out of the box never been used. This was one of the last of the healing line, note - the not quite standard parts are as it was last of line, so they used some bits up. Frame is mint. RMC

The HMX 500 does not need an introduction when it comes to the New Zealand old school BMX scene.
Not a great BMX as far as technology is concerned, but a great bike in it's own right.

More KIWI than a big ben pie!

This is my one way back in the day, the first generation single gusset model (which did start to crack around the gusset)
