I was really into BMX back when I was a kid, and poured over bike-related magazines. As I got older and too big for the 20-inch BMX frames, I got into mountain bikes.
As I got more into them and began reading of the history, a BMX article I vaguely remembered popped into my head: some guy, somewhere, kit-bashed a cool bike with disc brakes and a rear suspension. And raced it down mountains!
Today I finally found that article. A guy had scanned back issues of BMX Action and posted them online.

The pics here are from the July 1983 issue, pages 40-43. Enjoy!
