Saw this and recognised the dp badge, I used to have a dp Firebird BMX BITD, have a look at this, primarily BMX but may shed some light on the origins of this wonderful bike you have,http://www.dpfirebird.co.uk/history/4536212357
Thanks for that Jussa, a great trip down memory lane
And i even think my old bike is in the Gallery (Freestyler Mk2 furthest on right top row) exactly the same build except for the saddle
On a tangent (apologies for digressing this thread) But Gruff, back in the 80's a group of us from Rushden got together with our BMX's and launched a campaign to get a BMX track built in Spencer Park (Just off washbrook Road, Rushden) It was where the old community paddling pool was, which was in a bad state of repair. The Evening Telegraph (Local Paper) came on board and took some photos of us all on our BMX's and it made front page news, It was around the era of the film ET so BMX's were very much the trend. The track was built resulting in many a happy day spent shredding the park.
My local BMX shop was Mick Jeffs (Wellingborough) supplier of Mongoose, Haro, Skyway, GT and DP bikes and frames as well as some others like Falcon Pro.
