Many moons ago I had a bmx but it did't have 20" wheels as I believe was the norm,they were slightly larger. I was thinking that they were 24" but i'm not 100%. I know they were race wheels rather than freestyle but apart from that i'm in the dark. Can anyone enlighten me and maybe provide some links to pics as I don't seem to be able to find any the same anywhere.
Cheers in advance.Mick.

Not sure, but it's not an old one - Canti brake mount and threadless headset.

Maybe KAPPA?
They've done repros of Torker, JMC, Hutch etc.

Possibly Johnny Chopper from Oz?

They've done 24 and 26 inch Torker repros (see the "Retro Projects" link).
